The NFL season may have ended Sunday, but high school football got back on track Monday when the University Interscholastic League released its latest district alignment.

Killeen, Harker Heights, Ellison and Shoemaker will compete in District 12-6A, along with Belton, Copperas Cove and Waco Midway.

Temple went from competing with those schools in District 8-5A to being classified into District 17-5A.

The UIL added six-man football into regular realignment and the six-man leagues would fall under Class 1A, the current 1A enrollment numbers would be bumped up to 2A, the current 2A classification number would be called 3A, and so on.

Class 6A is for schools with an enrollment of 2,100 and above, Class 5A has schools with enrollments between 1,060 and 2,099. Class 4A is for schools with 465 to 1,059 students, Class 3A has schools with between 220 and 464, Class 2A contains schools between 105 and 219, and Class 1A has schools with 104.9 and below.
