WPIAL FOOTBALL ALIGNMENT FOR 2014

Only a One year Schedule to be Released Due to Upcoming Ford City/Kittanning Merger
Share |

Two years ago, there were major changes in the WPIAL football conference alignment. The biggest change came in Class AAAA and Class AAA where both classifications shrunk from the standard four conferences to three conferences and the wild card came into play. This time around, there were hardly any changes to the top two classifications while the biggest moves were made as expected in Class A.                      
   
Once again over the next two years in AAAA and AAA, the top FIVE teams in each conference will make the playoffs along with one of the sixth place teams entering as the wild card team. Head-to-head, Gardner points and WPIAL tiebreaker points will help determine playoff positioning in all four classifications as well as the wild card spots and first round home field advantage amongst the third place teams in AAAA and AAA.  

The top four teams will make it to the postseason in both Class AA and Class A.       
           
There were ten changes each in Class AA and Class A with a conference name change in the smallest classification.
    
Schedules, which will only run for one year because of the Kittanning/Ford City merger after the 2014-2015 school year, will be released by the WPIAL in two weeks.
