Hornet, I agree with your thinking. However, if I remember correctly, in one or two of the FHSAA meetings from last month, some of the board members discussed the problem that schools were having with getting on the golf courses they traditionally have used. I don't know if they were talking about public courses, private courses or both and I don't know whether that situation has gotten better over the last month or so. But I do remember golf and bowling being somewhat problematic because of venue concerns.
I know where you're coming from, but to be realistic, football is king. If they have to rearrange every other team's schedule to allow for football, they will. Spring may see every sport trying to squeeze in their schedule; the casualties are going to be the multi-sport athletes. Also if football is moved to Spring, it will overshadow all the other sports.
I watched him scrimmage against Winter Park as a sophomore; he was almost unstoppable. Also watched him play 7v7 this past winter against some of the best 7v7 all-star teams in Central Florida. This was a man playing against boys, and he was just a sophomore. If the kid from Madison is half as talented, he's pretty good.
I would be fine with watching softball and baseball this fall if I thought they would actually get to play
However I feel what would happen is they will move it and a few weeks from now they will cancel it and leave spring sports as a casualty of the virus for the second straight season which isn't okay with me
The kids are going back to school this month, either in class or on-line. I think the FHSAA should look into which sports can be played safely this Fall, regardless of when their season normally is scheduled. I play golf three mornings a week and have played through the entire pandemic. We social distance, ride single in carts or walk, don't touch the flag sticks, and we're all over 65, many of us with pre-existing conditions. The schools could play golf, tennis, cross country, possibly baseball and softball with limited exposure. My thought is that a lot of these sports lost out last Spring. We don't know what it will be like this coming Spring. Give these kids a chance to play their sport now. They'll be subject to greater exposure in the classroom than they will be playing their sport. I also want to see football played this year, if possible. With the colleges creating a great deal of confusion this week, who knows if we'll have football, but if possible, let the kids play.
