Varsity football game times pushed back to 7:30

The MHSAA Executive Committee met today to address recommendations from the Sports Medicine Advisory Committee and coaches.

High school varsity football games through the month of September will begin at 7:30 p.m. This will put them in line with the heat timeout, and allows teams to warm-up later in the day when the heat index begins to drop.
Middle school, 9th, grade and J.V games can still be played earlier but it is suggested that schools can change these times to begin later in the afternoon as needed.
