8-man multi-year improvement

Finishing this series is a study of 8-man football. Membership in 8-man football has been quite fluid this decade. The membership has greatly increased since starting in the Rolling Hills conference area. Because of this short history, there are much fewer teams who have exhibited consecutive years of improvement.

Teams with two years of consecutive improvement: (6 teams)

Coon Rapids-Bayard finished the BCMoore rankings #13 in 2007 (07).
