Interesting Read on High School Football … spartandhp

Number of teams nationwide are decreasing. Don’t know if the link will work.

Not entirely surprising or really surprising at all. School districts nationwide are short of money and football is not cheap. Kids have a lot of things to do with their spare time rather than go through football practice. I doubt the controversy over head injuries has been around long enough to have an impact yet but it will.

Tradition rich Augusta Red Devils will not field a team this year. Even with the merger of Jacksonville and North Pulaski, the merged school will field less than 25 varsity players this year.
