It’s full speed ahead for high school football in Tennessee. Friday, Tennessee Governor Bill Lee signed Executive Order No. 55, allowing the resumption of high school contact sports in the Volunteer State.

“Athletics is an important part of our way of life and provides many benefits for our student-athletes, but common-sense precautions must be taken to combat COVID-19,” said Govenor Lee. “We have worked directly with the TSSAA (Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association) to coordinate a framework so that football season and soccer seasons can begin while keeping student-athletes, staff, and fans safe.”
