News 4 in Jacksonville is reporting that Duval County School Superintendent Dr. Nilolai Vitti is considering changing the game time and day for First Coast High School football games because of violence.
In May, two football players were killed in two separate incidents. Earlier this year, Vitti said he would consider changing games from Friday nights to Saturday afternoons to avoid more violence.
Earlier this week, Vitti told the TV station — “At this point I’m not ready to change the day or times of the games, but we are looking to engage the First Coast community, mainly the parents of the students.”
Last year First Coast finished 12-1, losing to eventual 8A state champ Apopka in the state quarterfinals.
