The Dallas Schools Superintendent doesn’t think there will be a high school football campaign
You know things are bad when of all places Texas might not be having a high school football season. In the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, there are serious concerns as to whether or not we’ll be seeing players take the gridiron in the NFL, college and high school this fall.
If you ask the Dallas Schools Superintendent, though, it’s clear things aren’t not looking promising for players and their families in the Lone Star State.
No high school ball in Texas would have a monster affect for college football recruiting
That’s just brutal news and truly a concerning update. Can you imagine if there’s no high school ball in Texas? People live for that time of year throughout the state, with cities and communities often shutting down for some Friday night lights action.
However, the chances feel slim to none right now that there will be a campaign for the youngsters to partake in. The ramifications of this will be simply brutal. For the players, many were hoping to have breakout senior campaigns in order to try and earn a college scholarship.
For the colleges set to recruit those players, now what? Texas has long been one of the biggest and most popular states for programs to recruit. Whether it’s the Texas Longhorns, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Ohio State, Clemson or other NCAA blue bloods, coaches would always head to Texas to try and find the best talent in the country. Without a high school season, the impact would be catastrophic for both players and coaches.
Sorry, Texas high school football fans. It feels like 2020 will come and go without a season. Should this end up being the case, it’s be an absolute travesty.
