Russell Bronco FootballThe Russell High School football schedule for the next two years has been announced.

Just a week after releasing football classifications for 2018 and 2019, the Kansas State High School Activities Association (KSHSAA) has released its district football assignments for the next two years.

Starting in 2018, Russell and the other 47 teams in Class 3A will be put in eight six-team districts with district play beginning in Week 4 and bracket play starting Week 9.

On Wednesday, KSHSAA revealed Russell will compete in Class 3A District 8 against Beloit, Colby, Concordia, Goodland and Scott Community.

The Broncos will open 2018 at home on August 31 against Ellsworth. Russell will then host LaCrosse on September 7 and Southeast of Saline on September 14. The first road game of 2018 will be September 21 at Concordia, followed by another road game on September 28 at Scott City. Colby will come to Russell October 5. The Broncos will travel to Goodland on October 12 and finish the regular season at home on October 19 against Beloit. The first game of the playoffs, or Week 9, will be October 26.

The schedule for 2019 is the same, except of course the flipped locations.

Regular North Central Activities Association opponent Southeast of Saline will compete in Class 2A District 4 against Council Grove, Eskridge-Mission Valley, Rossville, Riley County and St. Marys. Also in the NCAA, Ellsworth and Minneapolis will compete in Class 2A District 8 against TMP-Marian, Hoisington, Norton Community and Phillipsburg. Republic County and Salina-Sacred Heart will compete in Class 1A District 5 against Brookville-Ell Saline and Smith Center.
