The latest state to reverse High School football decision

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

Today at a board meeting, Minnesota State High School League voted to allow high schools to play football this fall. Minnesota will now have a fall football season after the MSHSL postponed the season to the spring at a meeting on August 4th.

The first games will be played on October 9th with practice starting September 28th. They will play a 6 game season.

The Minnesota Department of Heath has reported that there have been 0 COVID related deaths of anyone high school aged. The MSHSL, like other states, is putting in place COVID protocols like limiting fans, mask requirements and social distanced seating. Interestingly, the cases per day in Minnesota are higher this month than they were when MSHSL voted to postpone the season.
