Because of a lack of news on what the 2020 high school football season may look like in Nevada, coaches are taking things into their own hands.
Liberty High School head coach Rich Muraco, who is the president of the Southern Nevada Football Coaches Association, and other coaches submitted a proposal to the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association on Sunday that would shorten the regular season and the playoffs, but still hold state championships.
Muraco, who led the Patriots to a 4A state championship last year and a No. 62 ranking in the High School Football America 100 national rankings, tells High School Football America that the coaches plan addresses the Fall season and the possibility of moving high school football into the Spring.
Coaches are proposing a seven-game, six-week schedule would begin September with the playoffs being cut-in-half. The season would end in late November. If the sport needs to be moved to 2021, the coaches are proposing a season from February 15 and ending May 10.
