    ESPN Mag article - Great story of MN HS team

    ESPN - ESPN The Magazine

    If what's happening to the McLeod West (Minn.) High football team right now sounds like a movie, it's only because it should be one.
    Some teams in McLeod's division have as many as 60 players on their rosters. McLeod has 19. And three of those are ninth graders who weigh 110 pounds, including helmet.
    Most teams kick PATs. McLeod always goes for two. Not because it wants to. The team doesn't have a kicker.

    Sounds like a candidate for 8-man ball in Iowa.

    They have way too high an enrollment for 8-man. They would have to play 11-man, most likely in Class 1A (assuming equal class sizes, their official BEDS enrollment would have been around 180, slightly more than Aplington-Parkersburg).
