Not to sound like a grouchy old man (which I am), but it really peeves me that Seymour forfeited weeks 7 and 8 and is playing this week. I know it is tough to get beat every week. I also know that sharing agreements are possible if you can't field a team. Picking and choosing your opponents just does not seem right to me.

They do have a sharing agreement. It just doesn't provide any significant numbers.

It is somewhat frustrating to see articles about a kid rushes for xxxx yards on the season, hitting certain milestones...
Which other teams don't have the same opportunity to do, because a team or two chose to forfeit and take a game (and those stats) away from their opponent.

Word on the street is that a bunch of Clayton Ridge kids quit this week. They are scheduled to play Sumner-Fredericksburg. I guess the seniors from CR didn't want a 9th game.....

Not sure I’d be worried about running up stats on the Little Sisters of the Poor just for individual accolades. At least players will be healthy with less games on their bodies and in the one case the younger players still got to play vs L&M, not sure if a JV was played against Mis-Prairie.

No, for sure. But, I see an article about a couple local players hitting 1,000 yards rushing in the regular season. A nice accomplishment. But, Regina's running back, who has had an awesome year, and just visited Iowa last weekend, sits at 935 yards rushing on the season because of two games missed to forfeit.
Not a big deal, but when those stats are used in a story to make a point, or for recruiting...they aren't really telling the whole story for some players and teams.

I know of two other backs that sit between 920 and 970 that also had a team forfeit to them. Tired of the forfeits, only going to get worse. Not sure what can be done, teams that get the forfeit don't want a forfeit, they want to play.

We met them on the visit last weekend. Nice family. He’s doing something right if he was there regardless of stats. Our RB is over 1,000 yards but had one less game, too, due to one of the same teams. Our JV back had 300+ in that hybrid game that our varsity back could have had, not to mention the other stats other players may have had; tackles, kicking etc. but it is what it is and playing that game does no one any good.

I guess my concern is not so much about an individual player's stats, but about the experience the team gets from playing together. There are only 8 games in the regular season. For a team to forfeit weeks 7 and 8 against quality opponents, then to play a weaker opponent in game 9 is pretty shady, IMO.

Depending on the college and position obviously, they’re going to look at size, athleticism, speed and character.

Really surprised at FD SE playing in the 8 man NIT. They are new to 8 man but have typically fielded competitive football teams, have a good level of athleticism, and coincidently just hit the 120 enrollment cap for 8 man.

REALLY surprised Harlan missed the playoffs and is playing a week 9 "Extra Game". Things must be really tough in 3A.

65 yard interception return by a Regina lineman.
34-6 Regina. 1:05 to go 3rd quarter.

Nope, 3A-4A-5A are in the final week of the regular season
Oh....I realize that....and also realized that this thread was about the lower classes who were Not In Tournament and scheduling an "additional" game for week 9. Apparently at least 1 Harlan homer didn't pick that up.

I don't think it's a rule, maybe a team rule some places. You see plenty of Freshmen getting minutes in garbage time, don't see many start, but I'm sure it happens more than just Knoxville.

interesting...i thought they could not play...but thinking about it., i have seen them play in baseball.....
harlan dominated knoxville, felt sorry for them actually...knoxville has no first downs, and had negative yardage for the game.....

They already have a sharing agreement with Mount Udell. I looked a few years ago and I think they (MU) had 3-4 kids willing to travel. Have to cross another school district to get there I think about 35 minutes one way.
