Poll supports canceling fall sports this year

The Florida High School Athletic Association’s board of directors is holding an emergency meeting Monday at 5 p.m. to discuss plans for fall sports. 

The key topic will be whether to adopt a three-phase proposal for practices in cross country, football, golf and volleyball to give schools more flexibility, especially in areas hit hardest with COVID-19 cases. 

FHSAA executive director George Tomyn already has recommended not adopting the proposal.

So what should the plan be? 

That was the question Prime Time Preps asked in a poll this past week. There were four choices: keep the same schedule, push back the starting date, switch the fall and spring sports or cancel fall sports this year. 

Here are the results.

The majority of those who responded (53 percent) were in favor of canceling fall sports this year. 

Tomyn disagrees. He prefers sticking to the current July 27 start for practices according to a story last week in the Orlando Sentinel
