Paris Football Transitioning to 8-Man

Paris Superintendent Dr. Aaron Vitt says the school board approved the football team transitioning to 8-man football starting next year. Vitt cited current and future enrollment numbers, possible football classification changes, safety, travel time, logistics and level of play as reasons behind the switch. Paris becomes the third Lewis & Clark Conference school to make the switch to 8-man in recent years, joining Schuyler County and Knox County.
