Prep football: MACCRAY looking into switch to 9-man

Email

Changes in high school football’s alignments and an expected dip in enrollment has MACCRAY exploring a move to 9-man football, at least temporarily.

The school district’s board of education earlier this month was informed about the plan, which, if approved, would be effective for the 2015 season.

The move is an attempt to keep the team competitive in prep football’s upcoming new environment, said Mike Dammann, MACCRAY’s athletic director and head football coach.
