This is an important update regarding the football season. After careful consideration, and with the safety of our student-athletes and general student population in mind, OCPS is postponing the freshmen and junior varsity football seasons at all high schools until the second semester of the current school year. We understand that your sons will be disappointed with this decision, but we are confident that starting those seasons later in the year will ensure a healthier environment and a chance to complete their entire schedule without interruption.
The varsity football tryouts are still scheduled to begin on Monday, August 31st with the start of the regular season kicking-off on Thursday, Sept. 17th here at home against Dr. Phillips H.S. We will continue with the varsity football season in efforts to provide these athletes with what could be their final year to earn scholarship opportunities to play their sport at the next level and for the last time in their high school career.
As more information is released to us regarding the second semester football season, we will make sure that it becomes available to you as quickly as possible.
