High school football: OFBCA releases tentative districts for East 5A, 4A-C
Football districts for the 2020 and 2021 seasons are slowly taking shape.
The Oklahoma Football Coaches Association has started releasing proposed districts on its website this week. As coaches from the state's different classifications have come together and discussed realignment, those districts have been planned out and posted on the OFBCA website.
The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association Board of Directors will vote whether to approve the districts at its Jan. 15 meeting.
The latest release included the two East districts in Class 5A. Shawnee and Sapulpa both appear after dropping from Class 6A-II, with the Chieftains coming in the third district while Shawnee is slotted in the fourth.
Class 6A-II coaches met Wednesday in Oklahoma City to discuss districting while the plan is for Class 6A-I coaches to meet Thursday.
Schools have a week to protest the proposed districts. The OFBCA executive board will consider changes on Jan. 3 before being sent to regional representatives and then the OSSAA.
