MONTGOMERY — Another meeting took place on Tuesday morning, but many questions that face high school sports were not answered.
The AHSAA held a virtual meeting with its Fall Sports and Football Coaches’ Committees to hear updates from the AHSAA Medical Advisory Board Committee and the Alabama State Department of Education.
According to a statement, “The AHSAA plans to present any recommendations to the Central Board of Control for review and approval at the Board’s next meeting, which has been set for July 22.”
Hopefully, more information regarding the status of fall sports will become available at that time. Opening night for high school football in Alabama is Aug. 20, as the 2020 Kickoff Classic is scheduled for that evening in Montgomery’s Cramton Bowl.
“We are grateful to Dr. Mackey and Mr. (Terry) Roller of the ALSDE, and Dr. Robinson and Dr. Dugas of our Medical Advisory Committee for taking the time to join our committee meeting,” said AHSAA Executive Director Steve Savarese on Tuesday. “And we appreciate the discussion and input we received from our own committee members.”
“Our world would be in better shape concerning the recent increase in COVID cases if everyone followed the health and safety examples our coaches and administrators provide and practice daily,” he continued.
