Videos by OutKick

It’s a joyous day across Texas as high schools in 1A through 4A divisions are allowed to start practice for their fall seasons that will start August 27; 5A and 6A will start playing September 24. Austin-are high schools will have to wait until September 8 to get started due to a city ordinance, but the rest of the state is a go for pigskin in the crazed football state.

As of last week, 37 states were scheduled to play fall football while six have decided to play spring football (including California) and another seven states had yet to determine when a season would be played.

In Texas, the 1A-4A state championships will be held December 16-19; 5A and 6A state championships will be decided in January.

In Ohio, high school practice started Saturday, but the public school systems in Cleveland and Toledo have either postponed or canceled fall sports. Arkansas is another state where players are back to practice and Governor Asa Hutchinson is encouraging players to “Grab your helmet and be ready for practice. Then after practice, grab your mask.”

High schools across Tennessee started practice today. “God I’ve missed this!” one player was heard saying, according to Chattanooga Times Free Press Sports Editor Stephen Hargis. Well said, kid. No go out and have some fun.
