According to a recent story on LehighValleyLive.com, state football officials in Pennsylvania are looking at four possible scenarios in the debate over the number of classifications in the state. Currently there are four classes, but some would like to see that number expanded to as many as six.
Below are the proposals that the website says are being considered by the Strategic Planning and Football Steering Committee:
1. The current four-classification scheme.
2. A six-classification scheme.
3. Six classes with a “Super 700” class of all schools with male enrollments of 700 as measured by the PIAA.
4. Six classes with a “Super 800” class, as defined above.
The proposals would also reduce the length of the season from 16 to 15 weeks.
