High school football in Alaska could be heading toward some big changes after the Anchorage School District announced that practice wouldn’t start until August 20, at the earliest, which is the scheduled start of the regular season.

Last week, the district announced that it was pushing back practice due to a spike in coronavirus cases and wouldn’t open on the scheduled date of July 29. All other teams across Alaska opened Fall high school football camps on Wednesday.

With the ten days of mandatory practice needed before a game can be played, the Alaska School Activities Association may need to re-examine the 2020 high school football season.
