Hermitage Football Coach Chase Ellis presents program to Rotary

The Rotary Club of Warren met for their weekly meeting Tuesday, Oct. 4 at First United Methodist Church. The club heard from Warren High School Junior Rotarian Emma Mann to start the program. Rotarian David Richey then presented his program of Hermitage High School Football Coach Chase Ellis. The Hermits play 8-man football instead of the traditional 11-man football. Coach Ellis began by talking about how 8-man football came to exist in Arkansas around four years ago. Steve Roberts of the Arkansas Activities Association attended a national conference that talked about the declining number of students playing football across the country. Hermitage along with Augusta were two of the first programs to begin the process of competing in 8-man football. The first season there were around eight schools who participated, and that number has increased every year. The sport is now sanctioned by the AAA for the 16 schools who have 2A and 1A enrollment numbers. There are another 10 or 12 schools who also play 8-man that are 3A or 4A schools, but they are not sanctioned by the AAA. The only difference in the field dimensions is that the field is not as wide across at 40 yards instead of the traditional 53 and 1/3 yards for an 11-man field. Coach Ellis also explained that you have to have five players on the line of scrimmage opposed to seven in 11-man football.
