Newest state to play high school football this fall

Yet another state has reversed its decision about high school football.

Thursday, Delaware became the newest state to move from postponement to action.

The State Board of Education approved a plan to allow high school football to take place this fall. This plan is a reversal of the postponement that was decided in August. The first games will be played on Oct. 29 with practice starting Sept. 28.

This decision came shortly before Minnesota reversed course and decided to play a fall high school football season. Delaware is the fourth state to come out of postponement and decide to play this fall in just the past few weeks.

Delaware will now join the other seven states that plan to start their seasons this fall and the 27 states that have already started.
