Will there be high school football this fall?

Recommended Posts

We ALL want sports. But at some point we have to stop guessing and look for realistic answers.. Again, I will ask..

1. How do we justify having sports without being able to have a normal school day?

2. How do we make sure our athletes are tested on a consistent basis so that they do not get severe symptoms (or worse) and do not spread the virus to others who may experience difficult or life threatening symptoms?

We are not going to have any answers until we start opening things up and seeing what happens.

School districts aren’t going to test every student, faculty, staff, volunteer, or person that comes on to their campus every single day, but what they can do every single day is take their temperature. Is that a perfect solution? No, but it’s a start. Kids will be on campus in some form, so if that happens why can’t a small percentage of the student population, in this case’ go outside and participate in football?

All great questions. However, remember the swine flu Pandemic back in 2009 was a lot more dangerous to our youth, than this current coronavirus is. Yet even though the Swine Flu was a lot more harmful and contagious for our youth, they still didn’t cancel seasons or really games.

 

Let’s not forget again, the country didn’t shut down to wait until there was a cure or a vaccine. It shutdown to slow the curve, not to overwhelm the health system. It was never shut down, to prevent anyone from ever possibly getting this virus.

 

If it not overwhelming the health system, then you have to try to get back to normal. While it should still be treated with some caution, to make sure it continues not to overwhelm the health system. It is important to allow things to start getting back to normal, and not waiting until there is a cure or vaccine. The shutdown was never attended to wait until there was a vaccine.

If they are not going to play sports, announce it now. Give all those athletes the opportunity to transfer to other schools.

What private school? When comparing to KY there is a big difference between Sayre canceling fall sports and LCA, Lex Cath, Cov Cath, St X, Trinity, etc...

From the article it sounded like they didn’t want to be on the hook for contracts if the season was canceled at a later date, so they went ahead and did it themselves.

If Kentucky decides to cancel fall sports, send your kids to Alaska. Recreational and sports activities will also be allowed to resume starting today without restrictions. Just saying.

SEC Is opening practices up starting June 8.

 

Take a lot more than a pandemic to keep SEC from playing football. Football is a religion to those states.

Exactly! Some people just keep wanting to move the goalposts back.

I just saw the guidelines for the return of youth sports; will those be the guidelines the KHSAA uses for the return of high school sports?
