    Default UIL Announcement

    UIL could delay start of athletics until September according to a conference call. There will "most likely" be an announcement Monday, July 20, from the UIL regarding the start of school.

    Honestly if high schools canít afford to properly test then imo there should be no season.

    IMO, they need to switch Fall & Spring sports, at least for this coming school year.

    If they try to move football to spring then wouldn't many of the college recruits go ahead and just enroll for spring ball at the college they choose to attend . I am sure a lot of the college coaches would prefer they not play or encourage them to not play and risk injury that close to the college fall season.

    I understand Coach Metzel is currently trying to find replacements for scheduled 5A opponents Pine Tree (second scrimmage) and Lindale (Sept. 18 game).

    Oops. Forgot that Lindale moved down to 4A, so no problem there.

    Good God after reading the UIL's Risk Mitigation Guideline Requirements I don't really see the point as half these items I doubt will be strictly enforced especially if you expect the students to be the one to do the cleaning and disinfecting of equipment, locker room, and other items. Plus football players will be sharing sweat towels and water bottles on the sidelines and during timeouts while on the field . To me the UIL wrote these guidelines to protect their A$% but know that the reality is that several of these requirements will be implemented with a wink and a nod!
