Monday, the Nebraska School Activities Association said it’s moving ahead with its scheduled opening of Fall high school football camps next Monday (August 10). The vote to re-open during the coronavirus pandemic was 8-0.

The only question is what the Omaha School District, the state’s largest district, will do. Media reports indicate that the Omaha schools may hold-off until August 31 to open its camps, which would change the overall landscape of the 2020 season.
