At this rate, 7 man football seems inevitable.

Is it just fewer schools or parents scared of football?

I think it is just that football is hard and a lot of kids are not up for the challenge. It hurts, too, when you have a young team that doesn't win and some kids lose interest. Many schools have fewer enrollment but even that goes in cycles. At Laurens Academy we have a huge 9th grade class this year with a lot of boys who actually play sports. If we can keep them all interested and out of the principal's office, we have the makings of a good run in a couple of years.

Another problem kids have is playing for a true school team that is made up of kids who attend for school and not just for sports. When those schools play against much bigger schools and/or schools who recruit for a certain sport, it can be disheartening to lose to those teams.

Palmetto Christian is playing Garret Tech in the Sertoma Classic. Doesn't mean they are not playing 8 man, but makes it more unlikely.

Just swapped text with the head coach. PCA will play its scrimmage quarter against Garrett in Sertoma, but the regular season will be 8 man. My guess (and this is only a guess) is that we are just trying to keep our spot in the Sertoma for whenever we are able to get back to 11 man.

I'm actually looking forward to the 8 man season. We played one 8 man game back when my son was a soph. (2006 season - I was off by one year in my previous post to Doc Gibbons) against St. Paul's Academy (formerly Country Day), but not another since then.

Ok thanks for the info. Hopefully I can make it out to a game so I can see y'all play.
