Rogers coach: ‘Pessimistic sentiment’ toward starting HSFB season on time
WACO, Texas (KWTX) - With high school football scheduled to begin in about six weeks, some coaches are are becoming increasingly skeptical that it’ll happen on time.
It was a good sign that high school football programs returned to strength & conditioning workouts this week, of course with a few changes to safety guidelines due to COVID-19.
Some states, like Mississippi and North Carolina, have already delayed the start of their fall sports. Some Texas coaches, like Rogers’ Charlie Roten, are hoping for a reminder from the UIL that August 3 is still the date to start practices.
Rogers is supposed to play its first scrimmage against the Troy Trojans August 14.
