High school football playoffs won’t be changing next year. This month IHSA member schools voted to overturn a move to have high school football teams playing in districts rather than existing conferences.
The move to districts was seen as a way to help schools that had a hard time fitting in size-wise in their own area conferences. Craig Anderson with the IHSA says while the second vote went overwhelming to keeping the status quo there are schools that are still in a tough spot for regular-season games.
Anderson says he feels once schools saw that districts would eliminate a number of local rivalry games that the tide turned against the sweeping change.
