COLUMBUS A subcommittee has recommended to the Ohio High School
Athletic Association that a seventh division be added in football, addressing the
large disparity in enrollments among the biggest schools in the state.
The proposal would divide Division I in half, with the top four teams from each
region qualifying for the postseason playoffs, the association said. But officials said
it was merely a proposal and no timetable has been set for action on it.
High school enrollments in Division I vary in size between 528 boys and 1,246
boys. The proposal would place schools with similar enrollments in the same division.
Divisions II through VI would remain relatively unchanged.
