Report: Georgia High School Association reaches decision on 2020 football season
We already saw on Monday that California high schools won’t have fall sports until at least December. On Monday, the Georgia High School Association went a different way with its decision.
Per reports, the GHSA voted unanimously to keep all 10 regular season games and a full 5-week playoff slate.
However, the season will be delayed until Sept. 4 — a delay of 2 weeks. Practices, according to the reports, will still start on Aug. 1:

GHSA votes to move high school football season back two weeks with games beginning September 4th instead of August 28th. Practice can still begin next Monday with pads August 1st. All other fall sports remain on schedule. https://t.co/ECk9xVEYDa

There’s still time for things to change, but for now, this is a positive sign for the athletes at Georgia high schools.
How will other hotbeds of Division I football talent handle their upcoming decisions? We’ll find out over the next few weeks.
