The Georgia high school football regular season will kick-off on September 4, but it will be without schools from Atlanta’s Fulton County. On Thursday, teams in Fulton County were informed that they will have to wait until the Week of September 14 for their first games.

Earlier this month, the Georgia High School Association announced that it was delaying the start of its 10-game regular regular season by two weeks to September 4, because of the coronavirus pandemic. The Fulton County announcement means that schools in the county will only play an eight-game schedule, instead of ten.

Fulton County’s Milton, the 2018 Georgia 7A champs, would have started the season ranked No. 91 in the Preseason High School Football America 100 had it been released as scheduled on June 29.
