NORMAN — Norman High made the cut, Broken Arrow, Union and Jenks remain the state’s three largest high schools, though the difference between second and third is more than 1,200 students and Community Christian will begin its OSSAA football life as a Class A program playing 11-man football.

Those are the highlights of the football classifications, just released by the OSSAA, which came complete with average daily membership (ADM) numbers, approximating the size of every high school in the state.

With the move to separate Class 6A into two divisions beginning next fall, each playing for its own separate state title, there was some concern NHS might fall below the top-tier threshold and not compete for the same championships crosstown rival Norman North would be chasing in the upper division.

That didn’t happen.

With an ADM of 1,761.72, NHS is estimated to be the 15th largest high school in the state, leaving No. 16, Putnam City, as the last program taken in the upper division.
