Last week, the District 3 Committee unanimously approved a motion to possibly change the football calendar, beginning in the 2018-19 school year.
The proposal states that all District 3 member schools must prepare to start the postseason in Week 10 as a way to shorten the season. In order to do so, the proposed change would require all teams to either drop one preseason scrimmage in order to keep a 10-game regular season schedule, or teams can keep two scrimmages but be limited to a nine-game regular season. Teams opting to drop a scrimmage and play 10 regular-season games would start in what the PIAA refers to as “Week 0.”
