AUSTIN— The biennial University Interscholastic League reclassification and realignment for the 2022-23 and 2023-24 school years will be released Thursday, Feb. 3 at 9:00 a.m. CST. The new alignments, established by enrollment figures submitted to the UIL by its member schools in October, will serve as the football districts for the next two school years.

The UIL has posted the 2022-2024 reclassification and realignment policies and procedures on the UIL website at http://www.uiltexas.org/alignments.

I used to always like going to Hico during the postseason and I still do, but I feel Dublin took away what business Hico had during the postseason ever since the Lions built the new stadium.

I would be a bit unhappy if I were in D1 District 8. Total of 6 teams and most of them could be playoff teams. They could have moved Rotan to District 4 and made it 5 teams each.

Sucks for us in District 8 for sure, having to win 4 games minimum where some teams are only going to have to win 2 in very weak districts. But it is what t is, if we are wanting to repeat as champions then that’s what will do it is playing a super tough non district and district. Our non district is nuts this year at Westbrook lol, we will be underdogs again and love every minute of it

Be happy they didn't put Westbrook in district 7! Borden County, Garden City and Rankin might have kept Westbrook from getting out of district play.

Looking at the new D2 alignments Richland Springs will have a cakewalk to Jerry's World while Strawn will have to beat Throckmorton, Benjamin and Balmorhea to return to Jerry's World.

The bad part of playing the super tough non-district and district schedule is the injuries don’t get time to heal properly and many times the player is lost for the playoff game that decides the season.

You see it every year, teams get way over hyped because terrible non district schedules then playoff games get way overhyped and then people get embarrassed.

Even though Zephyr will be going from D1 to D2, will they be able to compete with Mullin, Blanket, and Sidney in their new district?
I believe so, the varsity may be struggling but the junior high is doing very well, it will take time but I believe they will improve, heck at 0-10 the only direction you can go is up.
