The Knoxville News Sentinel is reporting that a Farragut High School football player has tested positive for the coronavirus, but not because of summer conditioning. According to the story, the player was at an orientation meeting last Friday and tested positive last weekend before workouts were scheduled to begin this past Monday.
The player is now on a 14-day quarantine. The story states that the player took a test after a friend of his tested positive. KnoxNews.com goes on to report that the positive report delayed the team’s start of conditioning on Monday until Wednesday while officials sanitized the facilities.
Head coach Eddie Courtney informed the newspaper that nine other players and two coaches who came in-contact with the player are also in a 14-day quarantine.
The state’s athletic governing body, the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association, doesn’t require schools to report COVID-19 cases to the TSSAA.
