Mock 2020 UIL Football Realignment: Class 3A Division I

Sports

Every two years the UIL realigns all 11 classifications and their respective districts to level out the number of teams in each division. 2020 is an alignment year and I’ve decided to have some fun with it.

In December the UIL released the cutoff numbers for each classification giving an idea of the number of teams in each division and where they would be playing for the next two seasons.

6A: 245 teams

5A DI: 128 teams

5A DII: 125 teams

4A DI: 93 teams

4A DII: 93 teams

3A DI: 105 teams

3A DII: 106 teams

2A DI: 97 teams

2A DII: 93 teams

We started with Class 2A, then ventured into six-man with Class 1A Division I, finished Class 3A Division II last week, and now we’ll take a look at Class 3A Divison I.

TLCA and Wall are the two Concho Valley teams represented in this classification. Wall has competed in district 3 for the past two seasons, while TLCA is making the move from Class 3A Divison II.

In the past, district 3 has been the home of Breckenridge, Clyde, Early, Eastland, Jim Ned, and Wall. Eastland is moving down to Class 3A Division II, leaving an open spot for TLCA.

Here’s a list of what each district could look like when the UIL releases its realignment on February 3rd

In this scenario, district 3 remains nearly identical, swapping Eastland for TLCA.

There are a few changes regionally with the additions of Dalhart and Lamesa. District 1 would add Lamesa, Shallowater, and Slaton, while Dalhart would join district 2.

Of course, this is all speculation and the districts won’t officially be announced until February 3rd.
