The Florida High School Athletic Association has made its decision, high school athletes from the Sunshine State will be suiting up in the coming weeks in anticipation for the coming high school football season.

That’s the news latest from Florida as the FHSAA board voted 10-5 to keep the state’s athletic schedule, instead of pushing back the start date a few weeks. In the state of Florida, football practice can resume on Monday, July 27.

The FHSAA met for nearly four hours before voting, according to the Orlando Sentinel. The vote came after the FHSAA’s Sports Medicine Advisory Committee recommended an indefinite delay to the start of the football season, along with volleyball.

While the FHSAA has voted to allow football practice to begin, at least one county in the state is not allowing football to start. Orange County (Orlando) will not allow football to begin due to safety concerns. Parts of South Florida are expected to make similar decisions.
