Coach Hutchinson On Football During Pandemic


Things are topsy-turvy in the sports world, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

By now, high school football fans are usually beginning to talk about their teams and the upcoming season.

Practices can begin February 15 with a seven game schedule and everything ending May 1.
