It could be called the tale of two states. In the states where I own newspapers-Alabama and Michigan, high school sports are treated very differently in the age of COVID.
In Alabama, all fall sports including football are in full operational mode. The schools my newspaper covers have already played two football games, four volleyball matches and numerous other sports are in full swing.
In Michigan, only cross country, tennis and outside swimming have been allowed to start. Football,
even though teams have been practicing for several weeks, has been grounded. The powers that be- mostly Governor Whitmer and MHSAA, have told aspiring athletes they can’t play this year.
