HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — Fall high school sports will look different. There will be a lot of safety measures in place and no fans, not even parents who want to keep their kids safe, but still want to be in the stands cheering them on.
The PIAA says it’s not their decision, but the association is following sports guidance from the Wolf administration.
It’s especially disappointing for football players in their last high school season.
Harrisburg High School’s Nate Bruce is in his senior year as an offensive lineman.
He’s already committed to play at Penn State in the fall of 2021.
COVID-19 has made practicing and playing a little more difficult.
“We didn’t take it as ‘oh, big downfall.’ We took it as getting better, so just overcoming adversity,” Bruce said. “Things are going to come in our path. It’s all on us if we’re going to overcome it or not.”
He has a positive attitude, even knowing there won’t be fans to cheer them…
