If is official. Seven Arkansas High Schools will be playing 8-man football, as a club sport, for the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 cycle.
Class 2A schools Hermitage, Decatur, Woodlawn, and Augusta, will join Class 3A Episcopal Collegiate School, and the Arkansas School for the Deaf and Arkansas Christian School in the 8-man league this season. All seven schools will play each other one time, so the ASD and ACS will have a six game season. Hermitage, Decatur, Woodlawn, Augusta, and ECS will play each other twice and will have 10-game schedules. The drop to 8-man will have serious impact on Class 2A schedules, with the 2A-8 being most affected (Woodlawn and Heritage). Augusta is a member of 2A-3 and Decatur the 2A-4. Episcopal Collegiate is a member of the 3A-6. All schools will continue to play other varsity sports in their respective classifications.

42 Sports just posted this. Well itís official Arkansas is now in the 8 man game.

There has been no announcement made by the AAA. Therefore, how can it be official?

I donít personally like it myself. I donít see how this is a positive for the sport in a whole. I believe this should be for 1A only when you open it up to higher then 1A I just believe it will do more harm to a 11 man football at the lower classifications then good.

you may want to look at Michigan and Nebraska where it is dyeing dayly. Yes football is fading and the more these concussions keep happening the more mothers you have joining the fight to end it.

Nebraska is fading because they are living in the 80s. They also jetted to the big 10 to get away from Texas. Which has killed them over the years. They used to live off Texas recruits.

Michigan is also in the same boat. Minus moving conferences. Michigan used to get the best WRs out of the state of Ohio(see Mario Manningham). Urban Meyer has changed that.

Michigan and Nebraska have been mediocre and irrelevant for some time now. Not sure that is soccerís fault but better football in the south.

yes sir this is correct the ďsoftĒ Sports will now become more popular.Football is a tough mans sport those times are long gone. When we was growing up you laid a hard hit both sidelines and stands got fired up. Now you lay that same hit it becomes a debate rather or not it was malicious attempt to hurt the kid. Lol


You do realize that in professional soccer games they have to be fit enough to move anywhere between 6 and 10 miles on a given match? I am not sure that classifies as being "soft". You don't just wake up one day and be that physically fit to handle that much daily mileage. I say that as a person who has ran multiple marathons and logged up to 70 miles running per week. There is no sport that you can be "soft" in and be elite at it. It just sounds like you only think a sport can be tough if that means crashing into each other with pads. I love practically every sport there is on this planet including football and soccer, but they all require their certain skill sets. We just live in a culture conditioned to value big things. That goes for sports, cars, houses, etc..... I used to see kids in football that got in trouble and for their punishment they would be asked to jog 2 miles before or after practice. They would be moaning and crying by the end by simply being asked to jog for almost 20 minutes consecutively. Those "tough kids" did not seem so tough when asked to do that. Football players with their body sizes could never log 6 to 10 miles a day in training or games just like soccer players could not handle being tackled by a college or pro linebacker so I am not sure what you even mean by "tough" sports?

however you want to spin it. I doubt Nebraska leaving the Big 12 is the reason. It had already started before they joined the the Big 10. Mothers against football is killing it. Itís here in Colorado itís everywhere. Arkansas is always last to the party in everything.so give it sometime and you will feel the wrath of these mothers as well.

I have lived in Colorado also and am about to move back.... It has nothing to do with mothers against football. Colorado is the fittest state in the country and they value different things than the south. Endurance sports are massive in Colorado on the Front Range between Colorado Springs and Fort Collins. We live in a world of more variety than ever and that includes sports. I think it's great the south values football and I think it's great other regions value other things. There is nothing wrong with either.

they just held a mothers against football get together the other day. I know this cause my wife was invited by a friend and went to the get together. She said there was over several mothers and grandparents at the get together. So...... you may want to pump the brakes on that.

It's that kind of liberal thinking that ruins everything. If you don't want your child to play football then don't let him play. Don't try to ruin a sport just because you don't agree with it. I don't like soccer but am I gathering support to ban it in schools . Goodness.

I thought thatís what parents were doing all along?

And as human beings, we naturally want to know ďwhy are our football numbers lowĒ? So when kids choose other athletics it all the sudden becomes soft, sissy, liberal etc. which I donít understand the mentality. Especially because Iím a non-ďliberalĒ to the T.

I guess I missed the part of my first career application post college that had me debrief on a high school football ďcareerĒ.
The fear of football dying is about as silly as global warming to me.

CTE is real and medical science is not liberal or conservative. Medical knowledge has no political agenda... only to eventually seek the truth. I am not sure how trying to make a game safer for kids became political. Me and Airwarren have had plenty of political banter back and forth, but I know his medical background and knowledge has him leaning with me on this topic. They are never banning the game so relax. It always needs to be tinkered to make it safer as times change and we gain more knowledge. That goes for all sports.

I have never understood the other sports are soft mentality either. I don't care if its football, basketball, tennis, track, soccer, hockey, etc......  no one will be successful if they are soft. All of them require a certain tough mindset to be great or elite and to dominate the competition.

Me either.

Take the World Series for example. Those kids at bat had robocop sized elbow guards and shin guards at bat. Things I have never seen before growing up watching baseball. Even the commentators made mention to it. One guy even said, ďyeah it makes it easy to lean into a pitch and get hit when you have that armor on your armĒ. Heston leaned in to take a hit on the arm from the pitcher and it was on the arm that had the big shield on it. Casey Martin had that awful face guard on his batting helmet. Big leaguers never wore that kind of crap in the baseball I grew up with. Guess that makes them soft and liberal.

Iíve seen tennis players blow their knee out trying to make a play. Tiger woods has never been the same since he has screwed his back up playing golf, baseball players go to the plate looking like robocop. I saw that kid from Louisville go up for a jumper a few years ago in March madness and he about made me vomit at the sight of his leg he broke. Same with an ankle I saw break this past year in the NBA.

So I donít understand this whole backwards mentality of sissy sports vs non sissy. Iíve played football and swam competitively. Iíve vomited in two a days. Had my pinky smashed between two helmets and Iíve swam so many laps and sprinted in the pool until I vomited. I found nothing sissy about either when your puking your guts up from hard work.

I just donít understand it, we have known for a long time the possible implications of contact sports like football. If you choose to play or allow your kid to play. Great! I love high school football and college football. But just be aware of the possible complications/implications.

I donít believe anyone has suggested that all other sports doesnít take mental toughness. Letís keep it real though,all other sports are not near as physical as football.thats the problem the physically.

When someone calls something soft it could mean a number of different reasons why they believe the sport is soft. Each individual is different so itís to hard to pinpoint anyoneís reasoning. Iíve watched my son play soccer for many years and yes compared to football it is a very ďsoft sportĒ

Nicely said....there is new technology all the time to evaluate and treat concussions.  If those safety measures are implemented, the chances of having CTE are quite small.  I know that in small programs, there aren't trainers to evaluate and advise, but the coaches and staff should be able to implement these safety measures. Also, we as parents need to be informed and aware of symptoms of concussion so as to seek medical help when necessary.

It's standard protocol now for the Coaches to diagnose concussions.  I would say 99%of the time the coach leans to the side of caution . But the thing about cte is these kids are being turned into missles,  bigger , faster , stronger which equals more violent and potentially harmful collisions.  If you run a Sherman tank into a Volkswagen bug bad things will happen. It's know different with kids. If you turn these kids into essentially is battering ram then there are going to be injuries and unfortunately cte is one of those injuries. As for the comment made about people thinking that kids that specialize in other sports than football are soft , well maybe they just don't want to be that Volkswagen bug in front of that Tank. Some would say that is genius not softness.

this protocol can only take place if the kid tells the coach he is hurt. If you got daddy or uncle down on the fence telling him to rub some dirt on it and get back in the game so daddy can live out his dream through his son.Then thatís whatís going to happen.in this case you canít blame the coach if the kid chooses to lie so he can stay in the game to make daddy happy.

Exactly, well put. Daddy had a crappy life, is divorced and remarried, and now he is trying to achieve his dreams through his son.

Nope you are right. Same story, different gender. More to life than sports. Sports are great, but doesn't erase your crappy life (Crappy Spouse,Debt,Car,House,Job). Just numbs it.

Wrong...it's the coaches job to evaluate the kid after a hard hit regardless of what he says.  If they are staggering around on the field, that's a big clue that he's got a concussion.  Fortunately the refs are also looking for these things and force the kid out for a play to be evaluated.

You assume that every coach could care less about the safety of his kids. Coaches are now aware that playing a concussed kid COULD be fireable. It is my experience that coaches have been overly cautious out of protection for themselves and the kid.

We have a Dr on the sideline and if he says a kid is done, he is done. Period.

no I didnít say every coach. Some coaches put the right thing ahead of wins and losses.some put wins and losses ahead of the right thing.im not at liberty to say who is doing what. They know who they are though.Thats all that matters.

no I didnít say every coach. Some coaches put the right thing ahead of wins and losses.some put wins and losses ahead of the right thing.im not at liberty to say who is doing what. They know who they are though.Thats all that matters.

Warren also has an MD on the sidelines.


You must be using little folk football as your example. But Im here to tell you, In higher level football, coaches donít play around anymore with concussions.

You assume that every coach could care less about the safety of his kids. Coaches are now aware that playing a concussed kid COULD be fireable. It is my experience that coaches have been overly cautious out of protection for themselves and the kid.

We have a Dr on the sideline and if he says a kid is done, he is done. Period.

Good post Eddie.

And in Crossett, we baseline test ALL athletes before the season begins. Even teachers are taught how to spot concussions. A concussed kid has a very difficult time hiding it these days.

if little Johnny is a beast his helme ainít going anywhere except back on his head. Well depending on the ball game if your up 40 easy for the coach to keep him out.However if your in a major football game with a lot on line.oh, you can be sure he is playing.
I promise you it don't matter if you are the starting qb , you get a concussion or he even thinks you have one tour helmet is taken away from you.  Nothing you can do on a football field is more important than a child's well being.

you may want to look at the code of silence high school players are using all across the country. Iíll give you time to do your research and wait for your rebuttal.

Sure kids try and hide it. That has never changed in the history of the game. That is why you baseline test and teach the adults in charge to spot symptoms.

i did my own research while waiting for your rebuttal. What I found is most people believe the baseline test is a waste of money and time.

Yeah. Kids can change the results of a neuro exam(pupil dilation, reaction to light) in an instant.


But hey, if da intanet says so.

No. I just know how to do a neurocheck on a kid who is exhibiting normal PERRLA, a neuro check of a kid with a concussion and sadly neuro checks for kids who have suffered a traumatic brain injury. Iíve worked in pediatric intensive care and emergency room.

I may not know much about 2a football or da intranet but I know that the neuro system is one of the systems in the body that doesnít lie or is subtle when something is off.

the people wasnít saying the procedure didnít work.They was saying itís not very reliable and itís results are inconsistent.they felt for the most part if give the athletes a false sense of security.

Dude, you're arguing for the sake of argument now.  Nothing is perfect. People are doing the best they can to get a handle on it. I really don't have time to argue over what the internet thinks about anything.

why does it have to be and argument when someone disagrees with people on here? Itís a public forum it wasnít created for arguments. It was created for conversation.im sure youíre School does take precautions like any other school would.Still donít make the results of the test consistent.

"Dude," getting a laugh out of stringing a newbie troll along passes the time.  ;D

But something no one should ever "except" on FF is when that troll shows their true "colors."

Even if a mod didn't assign the vacation, at least one of them took out the trash.

Carry on.
