Another state reverses course, allows high school football to play

Another state has once again reversed course on its decision about high school football.

Last night at a board meeting, Colorado High School Activities Association approved a plan to allow high schools the choice to play football this fall. The plan was approved after variances provided an increase to allow up to 50 players on each sideline.

Colorado will now join the other 5 states that plan to start their seasons this fall and the 26 states that have already started.

Here is a map of where the other states stand:


Specifically with regards to Colorado, the Board's decision last night allows schools that wish to and are ready to play, to move forward with their season this Fall. Schools that do not play, can choose to play in the Spring if they wish.

Colorado's decision came the same day the Big Ten announced they plan to play this Fall, the Pac-12 began to see a path to doing the same, and now even the Mountain West is seeking to return to the field.
