Let's boil down the Class 6A football reclassification as it relates to the Greater Houston area.
District 21-6A becomes the new power conference with North Shore (back-to-back Class 6A DI state champs), Atascocita (2019 Region III finalist) and West Brook (2018 Class 6A DII state runner up).
The big winners were Deer Park and Channelview, who move to District 22-6A. While it will be tough to schedule for District 13-6A with six teams, it means that only two teams don't make the postseason.
Another interesting note is now Houston represents half of Region II (4 of 8 districts) and all of Region III.
As the packets were passed out at UIL realignment this morning, there was something "unique" that couldn't be overlooked.
Conroe ISD is in a six-team district – The Woodlands, Conroe, College Park, Oak Ridge, Grand Oaks (newly-opened) and Willis (moved up from Class 5A). That makes for the only Class 6A district in the state of Texas with just six teams. Of course it's lucky No. 13-6A.
"The only difficulty (in being in a 6-team district) is when you are the only one," Conroe ISD AD Danny Long said. "It will all eventually come together, but it's just unique. There are so many mathematical possibilities that the UIL has to look at."
Conroe ISD is an anomaly.
