JACKSON — Mississippi High School Sports Activities Association announced the reclassifications for member schools in Mississippi for the 2023-2025 football seasons. Much of the changes were due to the addition of a 7A for the big schools in the state. 

Natchez High School will play in 5A Region 3 with Brookhaven, Florence, South Jones, North Pike and Provine, a more favorable region than previous seasons. Jefferson County remains in 3A Region 7 with Franklin County, Port Gibson, South Pike and Wesson.
