The first grade class had a wonderful fall day for a field trip to the Roca Berry Farm. We went on a hayrack ride to the pumpkin patch and picked out a pumpkin, rode bicycles, jumped on the bouncy pillow, went down some fun slides, looked at all the animals, played fun games, and some of us even were brave enough to go into the haunted houses!
Diller-Odell Public Schools is considering playing 6-man football the next two seasons, and possibly the next four seasons. We would see this a temporary change, and would plan to return to playing 8-man football in future years. If you have any thoughts on the matter, please share them with a member of the School Board, Mr. Meyerle, Mr. Mezger, or Mr. McMurray by November 1.
There would be pros and cons to such a change. One fact to be aware of is that the NSAA assigns all Nebraska schools their football schedule in a two year cycle. Schools cannot schedule teams as they wish in football as they do in sports like softball, volleyball and basketball.
Another factor in a change to 6-man, would be that we would be ineligible for the playoffs in 2022. The NSAA allows a boys count of 27 in grades 9-11. That count is taken the last Friday in September. Our count was 28. The number would be looked at again for the fall of 2023.
The NSAA requires all schools to inform them by November 30thon their intention to play 6, 8, or 11-man football for the next two years.
The Board plans on directing school administration as to their wishes at the next regular Board meeting on November 8.
Each game will be livestreamed on YouTube at Fcsacredheart. The link is

October is National High School Activities Month for the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) and its 51 member state high school associations. The month-long celebration in October offers the NFHS membership and the nation’s 19,500 high schools an opportunity to recognize the contributions and benefits young people experience by participation in sports and performing arts.
