Rock River will not field a football team in 2019 and is evaluating continuing the program into future seasons, the school’s AD said.

Ty Vallier, Rock River’s activities director, said via email to on Tuesday that the Longhorns will not field a team in Wyoming’s six-man division in 2019.

“At this point we are assessing the future of the program and will revisit that next year before state scheduling,” Vallier said.

Rock River has played sub-varsity schedules the past two seasons after failing to draw enough players to field varsity squads.

The school’s six-man program started in 2012. The team played two sub-varsity seasons in 2012 and 2013 before fielding varsity teams in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Saratoga, which played a patchwork six-man schedule last season after opting down from 11-man, will pick up Rock River’s games in the Class 1A six-man East Conference schedule in 2019.
