Football, COVID-19 discussed at AHSAA media day

The AHSAA kicked off its 2021 high school athletic season with multiple press conferences on Tuesday afternoon. 

In front of a projector brandishing the AHSAA’s new 100-year anniversary logo, Alvin Briggs, his staff and local coaches provided updates on rule changes, COVID-19 protocol and previewed Cramton Bowl’s Kickoff Classic. Montgomery Mayor Steven Reed even made an appearance, discussing his time as a receiver and defensive back at Jefferson Davis High. 

Here’s what we learned from AHSAA media day as the high school football season kicks off:

COVID-19 looms over season again 

Briggs bragged about Alabama being the lone state that started athletics on time last year and finished the same way. (Granted, dozens of teams forfeited contests across all sports, even during the playoffs.) Both Briggs and Reed stressed the importance of social distancing and following safety guidelines as the delta variant rips through the South.
