Two more states reverse their decision on prep football

Two more states have joined the growing number around the country that have reversed their decision to not play high school football this fall.

On Thursday, the Delaware State Board of Education voted to approve a return to the football fields, with the season slated to get under way in late October.

Just four days later, on Monday, the state of Minnesota also voted to kick off its high school football season in early October.

Both states had previously decided in August not to play until the spring, but they now join three other states who have had a change of heart in recent weeks.

According to, there are now a total of 35 states either playing or planning to play high school football this fall.

None of those states have reported a spike in COVID-19 cases as a result of playing.

Prep sports in California, Oregon, Washington and Nevada all remain on hold for now, however, with their high school football seasons not scheduled to begin until the new year.
