Section 2 football: A first glance at Class AA

This is the final look at the alignments and schedules for all five football classes in Section 2. To read about Class D, click here. To read about Class C, click here. To read about Class B, click here. To read about Class A, click here.

There was only one change to Class AA for the 2019 Section 2 football season. Albany elected to play in Class A, leaving Class AA with only nine teams playing in one division: Bethlehem, Christian Brothers Academy, Colonie, Guilderland, Niskayuna, Saratoga Springs, Schenectady, Shaker and Shenendehowa.

The lack of any additions to the Class AA field means that there will be only four teams qualifying for Sectionals for the second consecutive year. The move to one division was precipitated in 2018 when Troy, Ballston Spa, Columbia and LaSalle moved down to Class A following new BEDS numbers posted by the New York State Public High School Athletic Association.
