The MHSAA approved football for 2020 after Governor Whitmer decided on Thursday to not stand in the way of the season moving forward.
Practice will start on Tuesday, September 8th. The MHSAA football season will start on Thursday September 18th which is week 4 of the season. All teams will play their regularly scheduled weeks 4 through 9 and every team will make the playoffs. The MHSAA may have to expand from 8 divisions to 10 to make sure there is enough room for all teams.
Hat’s off to the many people from around the state who made this whole thing happen; including MHSAA Executive Director Mark Uyl, the Executive Council, AD’s, Coaches and of course, Jayme McElvany and the “Let Michigan High School Football Play” FaceBook page and it’s followers.
Look for coverage from FNV starting with our team previews as early as next week.
