680 THE FAN, ATLANTA – Great news! We’re playing high school football in Georgia! 

According to numerous reports, the Georgia High School Association’s Board of Trustees voted to go ahead with football this fall. 

The start of the season is being pushed back to begin on September 4 for games. Teams will be able to start practice on July 27 and then padded practices can start on August 1. 

The teams will still be able to play a full 10-game GHSA schedule, with a full five weeks of playoffs. That was unanimously voted in favor of by the board, according to Fred Kalil of CBS 46 TV. 

Kalil also reports that a motion to stay on the current schedule was voted down by a tally of 8-4. All other fall sports will be allowed to start on time.
