LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — The spread of COVID-19 had led to a timeout for dozens of Arkansas high school football teams.
However, according to Steve Roberts, the associate executive director of the Arkansas Activities Association (AAA), the high school football season has progressed with fewer hiccups than many people expected.
“We’ve had 47 games canceled so far which sounds like a huge number,” Roberts said. “But when you consider the overall number of games that we had on the schedule that’s a very small percentage of games.”
Based on AAA policy, the decision to cancel a game due to COVID-19 is left up to school superintendents.
