Five high schools will be playing 8-man football in Illinois this fall with more likely considering the option down the road. And that’s likely due to declining participation numbers in the sport says IHSA executive director Craig Anderson.



Alden-Hebron, Elgin’s Westminster Christian, Lake Forest Academy, Rockford Christian Life and the Illinois School for the Deaf are all going to 8-man football this fall, which has been declared an emerging sport by the IHSA.
