The Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association‘s Strategic Planning and Football Steering Committees have recommended a plan that will add two more classifications in football for the 2016-17 school year. 

The PIAA Board of Directors will act on the proposal for a six class system with an equal number of teams in each class next month.  The plan would also reduce the length of the season from 16 to 15 weeks.
