In the midst of a terrible pandemic that has impacted so many in the state, the country and the entire planet, Texas High School Football found a way to solider on and bring about some sense of normalcy for kids and communities across the state. Seniors got to play their season for the most part, homecomings took place, kids got to be kids, even for a few hours a day.
The fact that coaches, administrators, kids and families took a difficult situation with plenty of new challenges and protocols and made it work is an achievement in and of itself. Was it always perfect? Absolutely not. Were the conversations and decisions about playing or not playing worthy? Yes. Good arguments could be made on both sides of the issue, but ultimately putting mitigation protocols in place and trying to provide the kids a sense of normalcy in my opinion was the right move.
So thank you to everyone who played even a small part in making the 2020 Texas High School Football season happen. I don’t ever want to have a season like this again, but I won’t forget this season either. I know one thing; we’ll all appreciate full stadiums and normalcy just a little bit more very soon.
