As revealed In a recent Courier News story eight of thc county's smaller high schools will compose a six-man football team conference next season. Among Ihosc are a number who have played the usual 11-man football for several years. Including Shawhce, Wilson, Kclser, Armorel and Luxora. Unless we're mistaken Dyess, Yarbro and Dell will be making their first attempt on the gridiron. We have also heard that Osce- oln may abandon 11-maii football for Ihc six-man game that proved 'o popular last year when introduced In small Arkansas schools. Whether this Is true or not we do not know but the small team idea has swept Hie counlry since it was originated in northeast rkansas and- many schools are langlng lo [he small scale sys- m. , , . i, jf Hut our point Is'this, ol original. Abandonment of 11- nan football by other schools In I lie county, or.almost all of them,- hould mean (hat the Chickasaws 111 get likely talent that might o to other schools In the county. • Mississippi County's Team The Chickasaws should be not nly BlytlieVllle's football team they will be the county's only ompelltor for district and state lonors iii the regulations game. Of course the Chicks have easy been the outstanding eleven in he county for years, as they laturally should be. But it appears probable that ny husky boy who has a love or the gaiiie and hopes possibly o acquire a higher education in! he future, partly at least because if his gridiron ability, would rath-i r become a legitimate student at I Blythevlile nnd get lib football raining and experience here than ; vlth a six-man team which nee- i essarlly must vary ILs style of play' :onslderably from the usual form : Several . of the schools which •ank among the top-ntitchers in he state In grid circles are In ?onso!ldated school districts, which cover considerably more territory than the town or city where the i school Is actually located. That, I ! n a measure, we are told, ex- j plains why they have fine football material.
