The Georgia High School Association has postponed the high school football season by two weeks. In a GHSA Board of Trustees meeting held Monday, the state's high school sports governing body decided to move back the first games from late August to Sept. 4.
The good news for Georgia high school football fans is that the GHSA voted to keep a full 10-game schedule and a full slate of playoffs.
Other fall sports in Georgia will start on time. See full minutes
of the meeting.
The GHSA was one of the first — on July 6 — to allow intra-squad 7-on-7
competitions at practice. Voluntary summer workouts
continue in Georgia until July 27.
Monday's decision to postpone the season came the same day California announced its plan
to move back its football season to January. The California Interscholastic Federation moved back both its fall and winter seasons and split all its sports between January and July.
