Week Five Of Prep Football Features Region Matchups At Midway Point

Wednesday, September 16, 2020

More than 140 football games are scheduled for Friday night with 122 total games that feature region contests.

Schools are continuing to follow the COVID-19 guidelines and mandates and TSSAA believes that every adult and every participant must do their part and follow the guidelines set forth by the association and conduct themselves safely and thoughtfully so that the schools can provide as many opportunities as possible for the student-athletes this fall.

School administrators and coaches are aware of the guidelines and requirements, but the general public can educate themselves on what is being asked of everyone attending and participating in high school games this season by visiting the Return to Play page at TSSAA.org.

Spectators should be prepared to wear masks and have their temperatures checked at the entry gates.

Those that are or have recently experienced COVID-19 symptoms will be asked to not enter the stadium. Because stadium seating capacities will be limited to allow for physical distancing, check your school's website or social media accounts for information on ticket availability. It is the host school's discretion to honor passes, or offer any public ticket sales at all, because of capacity restrictions.

The full scoreboard, schedules and standings can be found at https://tssaasports.com/sports/football/.
