Eight Man Football Increasing in Popularity Nationwide

Particularly prominent in midwestern states, "eight man" football leagues have been increasing in popularity across the country in recent years.

In the 2018 season St. Anne's-Belfield School spearheaded and played in the Virginia Independent Schools Football League, the state's first eight man league, in the last four years the NorthEast 8-Man Football League included schools from multiple states. In 2019 the region will add another league when Perkiomen School, Mercersburg Academy, and Valley Forge Military Academy come together to form the Keystone State 8-Player Football League in Pennsylvania.
