As the coronavirus pandemic continues to make the start of the 2020 high school football season a moving target, the South Carolina High School League is moving back its start date for a second time.
On Wednesday, the SCHSL pushed back Fall practice from August 17 to September 8. On July 15, the state’s governing body moved the start date from July 31 to August 17.
Under the new plan, teams will play a seven-game regular season that starts September 25. The state championships will be played in December.
If the start date needs to be moved again, the SCHSL has stated that the sport could be moved to the Spring sports season. As of August 6, ten states have moved high school football to 2021.
The SCHSL also is capping crowd size to 250 fans.
