Shy Eight-Man Football
Several schools in Virginia have decided to not field teams this year and others are struggling to get numbers. The VHSL is considering adding 8-man football as a option.

RE: Eight-Man Football
High school eight-man football

Of the 30 states that sponsor the 1,161 eight-man teams in the nation, teams are categorized by "class", "division", or "districts" with sub-conferences within each. States elect to use an either playoff system, a "bowl game" format (Jamboree), or for states with few eight-man teams, no official postseason is organized, instead electing for "Conference Champions".

Do any of you posters from other states have any experience with this?
If so how was it?

RE: Eight-Man Football
I grew up in Oregon and the lowest division plays 8 man footballl with a playoff.
Currently 40 schools play 8 man. Starting this season, a pilot program for 6 man is starting with 16 schools. Mainly very small towns with low school enrollment.
