As first reported by Garrett Haake (@garretthaake) on Twitter, the Dallas Schools Superintendent Michael Hinojosa is extremely doubtful that high school football will occur in Texas this fall.
“That’s a true contact sport, I don’t see how we can pull that off. There’s been some discussion of moving it to the Spring, but we’ll have to wait and see. I don’t, I seriously doubt that we can pull that off,” stated Hinojosa.
While this obviously isn’t Mississippi news, a football-crazed state like Texas being very noncommittal on the return of high school football does not bode well for high school football all over the country this fall.
Earlier this week, the Ivy League cancelled all sports, including football and basketball, until January 1, 2021. They were the first major college conference to make an official decision on fall sports.
As the SEC and the MHSAA remain hopeful on the return of fall sports, continued cancellations will make these return efforts incredibly slim in chance.
