Football classifications set after NYSPHSAA releases 2013-14 BEDS numbers

Posted By Josh Thomson On February 7, 2013 @ 5:06 pm In Football | Comments Disabled

The NYSPHSAA released its football BEDS numbers for the 2013-14 school year. As you probably know, these are classification numbers based on enrollment from grades 9-11. They are used to classify schools for athletics in all sections included in the NYSPHSAA.

The cut-off numbers have also been published. The main change is Fox Lane moving from Class A to AA, which would increase the number of Class AA teams to 16, guaranteeing an eight-team playoff according to Section 1 bylaws. It would reduce the number of Class A teams to 28.

Yonkers Montessori, a second-year program, and Palisade Prep will also move from Class D to C.

Note: Albertus Magnus is not listed in the enrollment numbers. Last season, Albertus fell into Class C.

The other offshoot (coaches hope) of this information being released is that Section 1 can now proceed with creating its schedules.

Anyway, here’s a look at the 2013-14 information:

Class AA: 1,000 and up
