ZANESVILLE, Ohio- Athletic Director Nick Phillips has confirmed Rosecrans has canceled the upcoming season due to lack of players.

The team is still looking to play football in 2019, but it will be in an 8 VS 8 style of the game.

Phillips said “after talking with our school administrators and football coaching staff we decided due to our lack of numbers (13 players) that it would be in our best interest to pursue an 8-man football schedule.”

“We didn’t want to risk the safety of our players on the team along with not being able to play our full 10 game schedule and have to possibly forfeit games,” said Phillips. “It is certainly an unfortunate situation, but we look forward to the challenge of still being able to compete in 8-man football.”
