Class 6A football: Big changes coming to state's largest class
HIGH SCHOOLS -- The format for the regular season and playoffs in the largest classification of Oklahoma high school football will change for the 2014 season.
The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association board of directors voted unanimously Wednesday to approve a proposal that will alter the format of Class 6A football.
The proposal, presented by the OSSAA constitution and rules review committee, includes two separate plans, and now it’s up to the Class 6A schools to decide which plan they will adopt to be in place for the start of the 2014 football season.
he proposal does not include an option to keep 6A football as it is, so the class will be altered, no matter what.
The first plan, similar to a previous proposal rejected by the OSSAA board, will split the 32 Class 6A football teams into two divisions, with the 16 largest schools based on attendance in Division 1 and the smallest 16 in Division 2. Each division would have two eight-team districts, with four teams from each district making the playoffs.
The second plan would keep Class 6A districting as it is, with four eight-team districts. But each district would include four teams from the largest 16 schools in attendance and four from the smallest 16 schools. Two teams from each group of four would make the playoffs, with one eight-team playoff bracket for the largest schools, and another eight-team bracket for the smaller schools.
