It’s the day that every state in the country is waiting for, but it’s Alabama that gets the honor of being the first in the country to open Fall high school football camps.
Monday marks the start of the state’s acclimation period, which is the first step toward opening the season on-schedule on August 20. Last week, the Alabama High School Athletic Association announced that it was moving forward with the 2020 high school football season without any changes. Right now, 22 states have pushed-back the season with five of them moving the sport to 2021.
Once the state’s acclimation period ends, players can then start practicing on August 5 with the first games on August 20 and 21.
Teams in Alabama Independent School Association are also starting the season on-time on Monday.
