Mock 2020 UIL Football Realignment: Class 4A 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 last week, and now we’ll take a look at Class 4A Division I.

This classification is home to Lake View, where it has been a member of District 2 for the past two seasons. Along with the Chiefs, District 2 has been made up of Andrews, Big Spring, and Seminole, who is moving down to 4A Division II.

The only addition to the class as far as an area standpoint is Fort Stockton, who is moving up from 4A Division II.

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

In this scenario, District 2 remains nearly identical, swapping Seminole for Fort Stockton. District 1 is loaded with El Paso schools and District 3 seems too far north to be a logical destination for the Panthers.

As for Lake View, it more than likely will be in District 2 for a second time around, but there has been speculation of the Chiefs going east and being in a district with Brownwood, Stephenville, and Waco La Vega.

There are a few changes regionally with the additions of El Paso Riverside, Lake Worth, and River Oaks Castleberry. District 1 would add El Paso Riverside, while District 4 would add Lake Worth and River Oaks Castleberry, who would be moving from District 6. Mineral Wells had been a member of District 4 but is moving down to 4A Division II.

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