A re you ready for some football..Texas style? Next week The Colony High School football will be playing their one-and-only preseason scrimmage game at the Tommy Briggs Stadium, Thursday, Sept.17, 2020. Normally, they would’ve played 2 preseason games, but…times right now, ain’t quite normal, are they?

Good’ole Covid-19 takes the honors for that, as well as a delayed start to the regular HS football season which would’ve began this week. Catch the Cougars as they take on Mesquite Poteet beginning at 6:30PM in The Colony. The regular season will officially begin as an away game in Corsicana, when TCHS plays the Tigers.

The UIL’s COVID-19 risk mitigation guidelines state that all employees, parents, visitors and students 10 years of age or older must wear face coverings or face shields upon entry to an area where UIL activities are being conducted and when not actively practicing or playing in the contest. Stadiums will be at 50% capacity at games and the executive order issued by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on July 3 applies to all UIL activities.

Abbott stated that everyone in Texas must wear a face covering when in an outdoor public space when it is not feasible to be at least 6 feet from anyone not from the same household. The only non-medical exceptions that would apply for fans at football games are when a congregating group of persons maintains at least 6 feet of social distancing or while a person is consuming food or drink.
