Wallace forfeits 2019 eight-man football season, will play JV six-man

The Wallace football team is forfeiting its 2019 eight-man football season and instead will play junior varsity

six-man.

Last season, due to low numbers and injuries Wallace had to forfeit its final five games of the year and finished 0-8.

"Due to low participation numbers, we have had to forfeit our varsity eight-man schedule for the upcoming football season," Wallace activities director Eric Miller said. "We hope to play a few JV six-man games, and are excited about learning the game of six-man football. We look forward to competing in any way possible this fall football season."
