GHSA cancels football scrimmages

August 6, 2020–4:34 p.m.


The Georgia High School Association has canceled preseason football scrimmage games; however, the regular-season is still set to begin the week of Sept. 4.

The scrimmage games would have been played the weeks of August 21 and August 28.

The GHSA also moved competitive cheerleading to winter and one-act play tentatively to spring.

The moves were made in light of concerns expressed by Georgia Department of Health chairman Dr. Kathleen Toomey, who specifically cited football, cheerleading, chorus and band as higher-risk school activities.
