SD to Add 6 Man Football Beginning in 2019

The South Dakota High School Activities Association is moving forward on introducing 6 man football next year.

The Board of Directors voted 6 to 1 last week to replace Class 9B with a 6 man division. Activities Association Assistant Executive Secreatry John Krogstrand says the discussion began a couple years ago, with the current plan requested from member schools.

Krogstrand says many recent decisions with South Dakota football have been with the higher enrollment schools, while 6 man goes to the low end.

He says eligible schools will have till late this Fall to decide what level they will want to compete next year.
