Well, the realignments are out, and it is certainly a change from what Frisco students are used to. Welcome, Frisco, to District 7-5AII.

 

District 7-5AII
Denison
Denton Braswell
Frisco
Frisco Lebanon Trail
Frisco Memorial
Frisco Reedy
Lake Dallas
Lovejoy
Princeton

 

The schools that FHS is used to playing, in years past, are now a part of the District 5-5AI district, which is a similar group to what Frisco was in for the 2015 season. Frisco will not play any of the following teams next year-

District 5-5AI
Frisco Centennial
Frisco Heritage
Frisco Independence
Frisco Liberty
Frisco Lone Star
Frisco Wakeland
The Colony
Little Elm

 

Frisco sophomore, Connor Smith, expressed his disappointment in the new alignment. “I’m sad that we won’t have Wakeland and Lone Star in our district anymore, those games tended to be the most attended for students,” Connor said.

On the other hand, some students are excited about this new change. “I’m glad that we will finally be playing schools that have similar attendance as us, and I’m excited to see the schedule,” Cody Selby, junior football player said.

Frisco ISD Athletic Director issued the following statement:

Realignment always brings some changes for athletic programs, and it’s especially true this year with the split into two districts for football. But we’re aligned with some quality schools and we look forward to the new opportunities for competition.”

— David Kuykendall, Frisco ISD AD
