The South Dakota High School Activities Association is looking into a way to better even out 11AAA football records and possibly adding an additional seed to this year’s playoffs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 


Several games did not get played as schools would move to remote learning and cancel activities to try and mitigate COVID spread in their communities.  So far eight of the 10 11AAA schools have lost football games due to COVID-19. 


This change may be made in all classes with the purpose of an extra seed to play in the event that one of the playoff qualifying teams cannot play due to COVID-19.
