In a vote on Monday the TSSAA set the new football classifications for the next two years beginning 2015. There will be 6 classes in football with
the 32 teams in 6A automatically making the playoffs each year.
How Grundy County will be impacted is an increased number in their 3A region. Beginning in 2015 the region will likely look like this: Brainerd, Chattanooga Christian, East Ridge, Grundy County, Howard, McMinn Central, Notre Dame, Red Bank, Sequatchie County, and Signal Mountain.
The top 4 teams from the region will make the playoffs and there will be no more “wild card: berths to get in the playoffs. As soon as the regions
are firmly set the Grundy County Herald will publish the information.
