Philadelphia, PA (CBS)—Around this time every two years, some area football coaches find their knees quaking a little, as the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association, or PIAA, the governing body of high school sports in the state, reclassifies its schools across the state based on student size.

This year marks a few shakeups over the 2014-15, and 2015-16 seasons ahead.

First and foremost, Imhotep Charter, the reigning Class AA Philadelphia Public League, District 12 and state runner-up, will be moving up to Class AAA over the next two years.

That means the Panthers will be in the same classification as Archbishop Wood, the reigning Class AAA Philadelphia Catholic League, District 12 and PIAA state champion.

Class AAA promises to be loaded—since another school that’s highly affected by the change is Archbishop Ryan, which will drop from Class AAAA to Class AAA. All the Raiders did this past season was go 8-3 overall, including beating two state champions (Class AAAA St. Joe’s Prep and Class AAA Wood) and the Philadelphia Public League Class AAAA runner-up, George Washington.

Other schools changing classification will be Penncrest, a Class AAAA the last two years, will drop to Class AAA for the next two years, while Bishop McDevitt drops from a Class AA team to a Class A—the only Class A in the Philadelphia Catholic League.

Below are all of the high schools that play football in the Philadelphia area. From left to right is the calculated enrollment of each school, the actual school enrollment, the sport, the calculated classification for the next two years and the actual classification, followed by the school ID number. In the far right column is the district each respective team plays in.
