After missing the entire 2020 fall high school football season due to the coronavirus pandemic, high school football fans in the State of Washington are now disappointed with Mother Nature. A winter storm blew into the northwest causing many schools postpone or cancel their season opening exhibition/jamboree games. Schools across the state have been practicing since February 1 for a shortened regular season.
