When August typically rolls around, the fall sports start getting underway as far as practices and scrimmages go. But 2020 is not a typical year, especially in the fall, and we could have a season without contact and perhaps even non-contact sports. First up is Tim Stried, the senior director of communications from the OHSAA. Stried says they are awaiting word from Governor Mike DeWine on how to operate this season, from testing to social distancing, from contact to non contact.
As for fall sports at the University of Akron, the plug was pulled over the weekend by the Mid-American Conference. Zips athletic director Larry Williams discussed the tough decision that came down, and the possibility of some or all the fall sports being moved to the spring of 2021.
