Will there be high school football this fall?

Recommended Posts

i enjoyed listening to Coach Buchanan, and I sure hope that he is right.

Sincere and Passionate, and I think he speaks for all of he players and coaches who have been working towards having a season since back in June.

Please give it a chance, and then evaluate.  Somebody said it best at the KHSAA BOC meeting.  At some point in the season we may have to stop.  BUT, you can't stop unless you start - Let 'em play!!!

Guys I’m so sick of this they were never going to let them play every time one group approves there’s 3 more waiting to shut it down and these people most of the time don’t have any clue about anything.

Sorry if this has been discussed, but is there a set protocol for teams to follow if and when there are cases? I was surprised to see it’s been handled differently by the few teams that have dealt with it so far. Seems like there should be some agreed upon standard for all schools.

I've seen agendas like this before, the decision has already been made. The meeting is just a formality.

Someone called KDE and the lady there said they are being swamped with phone calls and emails. People making their voice heard.

Have we learned any lessons? The sky was falling before Thursday but then it worked out. The sky was falling before Monday but then it worked out. Before we immediately say the sky is falling and preemptively blame yet another institution, should we wait and see if it works out?

This.

You already have precedents taking place in other states.  If they can do it why can’t Kentucky?  I don’t understand! 😩

The KDE line goes straight to voicemail.  Hopefully everyone is getting their messages in and are being heard.  Sports has been a live saver for my son, ripping it away after they've done everything asked of them is cruel and unfair.  We know the risks of playing vs not playing, not playing has a far graver impact on a lot of children than playing.

I called 502-564-3141 and just hit 0.  The lady that answered didn't even say Hello.  She just said, "Are you calling to voice support and to say "let them play?"  Haha.  She said that she alone has already fielded over 400 calls this morning in support of letting them play.  

I also emailed every member:

Let Them Play!

NKYFL and LYFL leagues both have cancelled.  I know this is a HS topic, but still very sad for those young athletes.
