Just the news that most of you wanted to hear. On Tuesday afternoon, The Kentucky High School Athletic Association’s Board of Control approved the High School Football season to officially begin on September 11th. KHSAA commissioner Julian Tackett went on to say that "nothing is set in stone during the Covid-19 pandemic," which seems to be the norm now, but we can take this news and run with it. As of right now, we get to have our Friday night lights turned on and that excites a lot of people in this state.
After losing out on the revenue that the KHSAA Men's and Women's Sweet Sixten Tournament would've brought in, Julian Tackett has been pushing for football to be played this fall in any way possible. If Football can be played this fall in any style as long as it was safe for the players and staff, he was pushing for it, so this news isn't very surprising.
Jason Frakes (@Kyhighs) for the Courier-Journal sent out a list of what the KHSSA Board has recommended the season look like, but hasn't officially been voted on for approval yet.
When more news comes out on this developing story, we'll have it covered here on the site.
High School Football is on its way back in the Bluegrass.
