ATLANTA — The Georgia High School Association has made plans to postpone the football season, delaying some games until late December.
Channel 2 Sports Director Zach Klein spoke with GHSA Executive Director Robin Hines about this decision.
Hines said the GHSA provides a road map for schools to follow, but it’s up to each individual district to implement their own rules on testing and health procedures.

School districts will also make their own decisions about allowing fan attendance and what procedures to follow if an athlete tests positive for COVID-19.
Hines said he will be meeting with the Sports Medicine Advisory Committee to get recommendations that will put student-athletes in the best position to stay healthy.
With the football schedule pushed back two weeks, the state championship games will now be played Dec. 28 through Dec. 30 at Georgia State Stadium.
