High school football is still on schedule for this weekend.
But if Hurricane Irma becomes a bigger threat to South Florida, several of those games could happen a little earlier than expected.
The Greater Miami Athletic Conference and Broward County Athletic Association are monitoring the situation and will likely discuss the potential rescheduling of this week’s high school athletic events should the storm affect Miami-Dade and Broward Counties by this weekend.
The possibility exists that games scheduled for Friday and Saturday could be moved up with several going to Thursday.
Never miss a local story.
Due to the Labor Day holiday on Monday no decisions were made and won’t be until both the GMAC and BCAA resume normal business activities on Tuesday.
Private or charter schools not affiliated with either governing body may also choose to reschedule events for earlier this week.
The situation typically always presents a challenge especially in Miami-Dade where the majority of the 37 public school football programs play at eight neutral-site stadiums.
A handful of those schools have hosted games on-campus in recent years, which could become an option this week as well.
A total of 10 football games are scheduled for Thursday in Miami-Dade County and one in Broward. There are 15 more set to be played Friday in Dade with 18 in Broward County.
Saturday’s slate features two games in each county, including a pair of north-south clashes in Dade between Carol City and Columbus at Tropical Park and South Dade and Northwestern at Traz Powell Stadium. Deerfield Beach is set to play Blanche Ely and Fort Lauderdale is set to take on Cooper City on Saturday as well.
One game between Killian and American was suspended this past Friday with the teams tied at 6 in the third quarter. That game is tentatively scheduled to resume Tuesday at a time to be announced at Milander Park in Hialeah.
