Re: Tomball Rosehill Christian
Yes I believe Covenant was "planning" for the move to 11-man to take place in the next realignment period. I don't know if they will play an "outlaw/indy" schedule a year before going into district or if they will just jump in with both feet once the move was made, but yes they definitely knew 11-man was coming down the pike.
I believe the "plan" there may be similar to that which Austin Regents took several years back.
First, you transition your junior high program to 11 man for one or two years.
Second, you start a JV 11 man squad for a year.
Then, you move to varsity 11 man.
When you see the first step, the next ones will follow.
