UIL: State releases cutoff numbers for new 6 classification alignment

AUSTIN — The University Interscholastic League released the conference cutoff numbers for the 2014-2016 reclassification and realignment on Monday and although the UIL is moving to six classifications, the new numbers don’t affect any of the nine schools in the Golden Circle — other than adding an A to their classifications.

The new classifications are based on moving 6-man football to 1A footbball and bumping everyone else up, while cutting off the largest classification — Class 6A — at 2,100 students.

In the Golden Circle, all Class A schools will simply move to Class 2A, and 2A schools will be classified in 3A next year. Corsicana will move from Class 4A to Class 5A.

The new district alignments will be released in February.

The 2014-16 alignments will be released on Feb. 3 for football and basketball.

Those realignments could affect teams in the Golden Circle, especially Corsicana, which is currently playing in District 16-4A, a district loaded with teams from East Texas.

There is speculation Corsicana will be moved to a nw district when the district alignments are released on Feb. 3 for football and basketball.

District alignments for other activities will be released in the order of their seasons.

More information about UIL alignments can be found at

    The Cowboys started training camp the same week that Robert Newhouse died.
    In a way, that’s very unfortunate for Jerry. Thinking back to the “Human Bowling Ball” and the teams of that era might lead to the inevitable comparisons to today’s product on the field.

    “I love coaching,'' said Williams as he sat at his desk in Blooming Grove, where he became the Lions' head coach this summer. “I just never thought about being the head coach and I never applied to be a head coach. With this job I can still coach.''
