Cougar Football and Lady Cougar Soccer get the green light from the governor

first_imgShare this:FacebookTwitter NASHVILLE, TN (WLAF) – In  a press conference today, Tennessee Governor Bill Lee announced that he will soon sign Executive Order No. 55, which will include TSSAA member schools in an exception to contact sports restrictions. “We appreciate being able to work with Gov. Lee and his staff on this,” said Bernard Childress, Executive Director of the TSSAA. “I am pleased that we were able to develop some very specific guidelines for every sport that will allow our kids to get out on their fields and fully participate in football and girls’ soccer this fall.”Campbell Cougar Football Coach Justin Price said, “The governors decision gives us the opportunity to start the season as scheduled. We will continue to follow the TSSAA regulations and the guidelines of our school system as we prepare for the 2020 season.”CCHS had a football player test positive for COVID-19 a couple of weeks ago.  As a result all football, basketball, and cheer-leading practices were suspended for the recommended five practices that encompass a 14-day period of time as a precaution.  That 14-day period is up on Thursday.  Coach Ryan Browning, the new Campbell High Director of Athletics, is expected to meet with coaches on Wednesday.Although contact practice is now permissible, the regulations and requirements for practice and competition adopted by the Board of Control at their July 22 meeting are still in place for all sports and must be followed.

The Date of First Contest remains as originally scheduled, Aug. 17, with the state championships to be held Oct. 28-31 in Murfreesboro.Football teams were allowed to begin heat acclimatization on July 20th. Each athlete must complete heat acclimatization (2 days of helmets only, 3 days in helmets and shoulder pads) before practicing in full equipment, which is now permitted.No changes to the 2020 football schedule, regular season or otherwise, will be made. The contingency plan for football passed by the Board of Control last week stated that if contact practice could resume prior to Aug. 4, then no contests would be rescheduled. Therefore, the Date of First Contest for football remains as Aug. 21 with state championships Dec. 3-5 in Cookeville.“This is good news for many kids and their families,” Childress added, “but the reality is that the virus will continue to be with us and we have to be smart about taming the spread. Every adult and every participant in every sport must do their part and follow the guidelines set forth by TSSAA and the Governor’s office to help mitigate these risks.” (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 07/28/2020-7PM)last_img read more
