Parker to move to 11-man football

By Shane Merrill | Sports

With an ever-growing school enrollment, the Parker football team will now be making the move to 11-man football for the 2021 season. The Pheasants, who have played in the nine man ranks since 2005 and won a state championship in 2006, are now once again reclassified to 11B. 

“I think this is a great opportunity for our kids.  We will able to get two more kids on the field on both sides of the ball.  As a team and a program, we will need to work together to rise to this challenge,” says head football coach Scott Hybertson. 

No schedules have yet been released, however conference foe Baltic as well as neighboring co-op Menno/Scotland will also jump to 11B next season.
