Beaver to Become Independent in Football

Beaver schools was granted its request on Wednesday morning to drop from the ranks of association member football teams.

At the monthly meeting of the board of directors, the Oklahoma School Secondary Activities Association voted to approve Beaver’s request to drop from its 11-man football status in Class A to play independent 8-man football starting next year.

Beaver will still be an association member in other sports as the board voted to approve the measure 12-0.

In the school’s request, it stated that it believed 11-man football was no longer sustainable.

Beaver won three Class C football state titles from 1959-1962 but has fallen on hard times in recent years. The Dusters last made the playoffs in 2010 and went 0-10 for the second consecutive season this year.
