And by the time the football season has concluded, there won’t be many people that will be able to compare it to any other season.
High School teams will face all sorts of scenarios and situations, but the sport of high school football may have been affected the most.
Of all high school sports, football seems to require the most physical conditioning. Having a change in season could lead to a host of issues.
Will athletes be conditioned the same entering the season? Will there be more of an occurrence of injuries during the year?
Will it be possible to avoid conflicting schedules now that practice is resuming next week at the same time that schools are slated to begin?
To say the least, it’s going to be an interesting sports season for all teams and players.
But for those associated with the sport of football in particular, the changes will surely cause the most changes.
Who exactly will be able to take advantage of the change in schedule? Who will be hurt most?
It’s something we are all sure to notice as the high school football season begins on Sept. 18.
