Deaf Football announcement

Athletic Directors Warren Keller of Fremont and Tony Barksdale of
Riverside made a joint video announcement about the annual football
“Big Game” between the two schools. With Riverside’s impending pla
n to move down to 8-man football and Fremont remaining at 11-man football,
both schools have decided not to play each other this fall.

comments:
DeafDigest Sports editor was surprised by the announcement and so,
asked around. It was learned that Riverside will only be having
15-16 players this coming 2018 football season. Riverside
made the correct decision for reasons of safety – and there is
hope that the school will go back to 11-man in 2 or 3 seasons
when manpower numbers go up.

What this means that only seven schools will be fielding
11-man teams in the 2018 season – Alabama, Florida, Fremont,
Indiana, Maryland, Model and Texas.
