BANGOR - Bangor football is used to traveling far for its games as it is the only Eastern Maine team in Class A North.

The Rams should have racked up enough miles to be traveling platinum by now, which is exactly why the road warriors aren't concerned with the latest MPA classification proposal.


The proposal once again has Bangor as the only Eastern Maine team in Class A, but the biggest change is to the size of the class. Class A will no longer have a south and north division, it instead will only have eight teams in it. Head coach David Morris isn't concerned.


"We're willing and we want to play the best teams that there are and you know whatever the schedule is we're willing to go and travel and you know obviously teams will come to us we play four games home four games away. We have a rich tradition and we're willing to go play anybody," Morris said.


The proposal isn't set in stone. The schools will vote on it at the end of the month. Several people have voiced their positive and negative opinions about the MPA proposal on social media, Morris trusts it though. He thinks the decision to cut down Class A won't impact his program moving forward.


"I don't really have any views in terms of the MPA changing anything you know here in Bangor we're excited about football and we're excited about our kids and what they're doing and you know any opportunity to play football and play a game whether it's away or home we're excited about," Morris added.
