Delta administrators and coaches have been among the biggest proponents for a revamped 3A, and football coach Russ Henrie said this plan, which he hopes will separate urban 3A schools from the rural ones, will make things more fair.

Delta was the smallest school in 3A based on the 2010 number the UHSAA used for realignment.

"We don’t want to use it for an excuse," Henrie said. "We want to make sure kids will fight no matter what the odds, but you always know in the back of your mind. I always say a big kid with a big heart is better than a little kid with a big heart. … In football, the big kid’s going to win."
