Slater Considering Move to 8-Man Football

The Slater School District will be holding a meeting next month on the future of the high school football program. Superintendent Dr. Terry Lorenz says dwindling numbers are the root of the upcoming discussion.

Lorenz adds a shift to eight-man football by other area schools is necessitating the discussion in Slater.

A final decision on Slater’s football program isn’t expected to come in February. The next Slater School Board meeting is February 16th.
