North Carolina high schools won’t return to the gridiron until February.
The North Carolina High School Athletic Association announced the amended calendar for high school athletics Wednesday.
NCHSAA Commissioner Que Tucker made the announcement in an online video.
Under the new calendar, the regular high school football season will run from February 26 through April 9.
Other sports are being pushed back as well.
Keep in mind these new dates are still dependent upon improved COVID-19 trends in North Carolina.
