Has anyone heard of any other schools looking at fielding 6man teams next year or in the near future?

Looks like 6-man football for Midway-Minto is on the agenda at the next NDHSAA meeting.

Yes, I saw that and that's what got me wondering. If an eastern school is going that route there must be a few others looking at it since the other teams are in the far west.

In the Midway letter it said other districts in the area were considering 6 man football. I wonder what schools. Maybe some in that GCC/Midkota/BCN area...I don't really know. Drayton, VE, St. Thomas???

I could see quite a few schools that could be looking at this near future in Northeast Nd in the coming years. Lakota, Dakota prairie, NorthStar, Benson county, Drayton, Valley-Edinberg, Griggs county, Maybe like Hatton and Northwood going separate ways especially if some of these other schools switch because they would be close for getting games, Hope/page, Barnes county North, and there could be a few others if enrollments continue to decline and participation continues to drop. For the football purest this would be like being a traitor to football but I can see this happening because this will be different game based on speed and quickness not the physical game that football is now. I think football if it is going to survive long term now its going to have to change and become a less physical sport where your equipment does protect you and not head banging game it is now. If the sport doesn't change its going to die as a game because medical evidence is just mounting up that to many people are having serious medical problem developing from how the sport is played today. Its not just pro players having medical problem but young college players are showing symptoms of hitting going on in football and they haven't even started on high school kids yet. this is just my thoughts but what I see of six man football its more based on speed and movement like hockey and basketball reducing physical contact between players.
