WPIAL executive director Tim O'Malley is meeting with high school principals, athletic directors and football coaches at Elizabeth Forward tonight to discuss the movement toward a six classification-system for PIAA football. Another meeting takes place Thursday at North Allegheny.
Many in the WPIAL is opposed to the idea. Many outside the WPIAL are in favor.
The Observer-Reporter recently did a story on the topic. To read,
If the PIAA Board of Control approves the third and final reading, the WPIAL will be faced with a decision. Will it withdraw from the PIAA for football or not?
I've spoken with a number of coaches and athletic directors about six classes. There are several who are strongly opposed, a couple who don't care much either way and many want the move to happen.
