Iowa High School Football
America’s Game, Iowa High School Passion
More boys still participate in football than any other sport at the high school level, and IHSAA member schools have played since 1909. The first IHSAA playoffs took place in 1972, with the current system featuring five 11-player classifications and one 8-player classification. Four teams in each class advance to semifinals and finals at the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls each year.
