CHSAA board unanimously votes to not move high school football to fall, despite Gov. Polis saying state was open to idea
The push to bring back high school football this fall appears to be over.
The Colorado High School Activities Association Board of Directors voted Tuesday night not to reconsider changes to the revised 2020-21 athletic calendar that moved football and other sports to the spring.
The vote came hours after Gov. Jared Polis expressed a willingness to bring back football this autumn.
“We understand that our school communities would like to return to all levels of normalcy,” said Troy Baker, the President of CHSAA’s Board of Directors, in a news release. “We listened to all parties and the voices of our membership resonated strongly to support the plan as approved in August.
“The plan aligns with the CHSAA mission. All students have an opportunity to play a season during the 2020-21 school year.”
Basalt’s lone score came in the third quarter via a 4-yard touchdown run by senior Cooper Crawford that proved to be the only points of the second half for either team.
