California HS Football is back!

Post by redblue42 »

Who will be a sleeper team? Who will win it all? Which team will take a step back? How is the Trinity League looking?

Heavily edited, but here's the gist per Sondy@LATIMES:

New California Sports Guidelines to Allow Football in Many Counties Starting Feb. 26
By ERIC SONDHEIMER
FEB. 19, 2021 9:46 AM PT

The California Department of Public Health released its much-anticipated youth sports update Friday after weeks of talks with coaches and CIF officials while seeing a major decline in coronavirus cases, clearing the way for high school football and other outdoor sports to resume on Feb. 26...

The CDPH announced that high-contact sports such as football, field hockey, rugby and water polo, with participants ages 13 and older, can be played in counties with an adjusted daily case rate of 14.0 or fewer per 100,000 population, along with regular weekly testing for athletes and coaches. L.A. County, though, currently has a case rate of 17.6 per 100,000, and its teams would not qualify...

Either antigen or PCR testing will be required for all participants and coaches. The state will work with schools to connect them with testing sites, particularly public schools in the hardest-hit communities...

“We’ve been looking at data and science. We are now confident with new guidelines we can get youth sports running again,” Gov. Gavin Newsom said in a news conference Friday. He added the state will help absorb the costs of testing. When it comes to indoor sports, Newsom said, “That’s a separate conversation and more complicated”...

The updated guidance will allow outdoor, high-contact sports in counties in the more-restrictive purple and red tiers if they meet the case-rate requirements...

The biggest reason schools now have a chance to play football and other sports is the steep drop in transmission rates. As of Tuesday, case rates in 47 of the state’s 58 counties had fallen enough to allow some level of classroom instruction. The key metric now is getting to the red tier, where the seven-day average of coronavirus cases is 4.0 to 7.0 per 100,000. The purple tier includes counties with more than 7.0 daily cases per 100,000...

Football originally was to be allowed only in counties in the orange tier, with daily case rates of 1.0 to 3.9 per 100,000. Most counties would not qualify under that requirement by March, when football games need to begin so they can finish by the CIF’s end date of April 17...

It looks like a "likely maybe."

I recall a while back something mentioned about Bosco being willing to take their practices and have all games in other counties if that is what it takes for them to be able to play.

More likely it's the steep drop in infections.

But there should be a Super Bowl bump in about 3... 2... 1...

It must be nice to trust the politicians, after all they look so honest.

John Q
The criteria for lesser restrictions in California has changed on multiple occasions. Thanks to the Gov and Dr (who is not a medical doctor) Ferrer not based on science but personal whims. My point is if the Governor was not worried about a possible recall he may very well have changed the criteria again. That based on race there are more kids susceptible to the virus than others, he's done it before. He now must be at least considering he may not have long for the Governor's seat at the table and I am not talking the one at the French Laundry.

As knowledge of the virus and conditions on the ground change, so does the response. You would stick your head in a hole and ignore a changing reality?


...not based on science but personal whims

How about at least a shred of evidence to support this ridiculous assertion?

One gets the feeling you've got it in for the Gov. and would find a reason to oppose whatever decisions he makes...

Getting back to football again, What will happen with Bosco if football can start up
in the OC, they obviously can't have any home games, can they even go full bore, pads, hitting, etc., in practice, in LA county now?

Would they have to travel to the OC to practice for basically a league season only.
Would they even be eligible to practice/play in the OC being a LA county team?
Thoughts?

I'm wondering if they could play if they don't actually live in OC. Seems like it wouldn't matter where you practice and play if you spend far more time in a higher tiered county.

So if Bosco has to practice in OC, where they doing that and how? I think they might regress especially since DJ graduated. Seems like Servite is the only team with an elite QB --:--

LA County positivity test rate is 7.2 as of 2/21. Under 8% is in the Red Tier, so Bosco can test and play.

Broman, you're looking at the test positivity rate (i.e. percentage), which is the wrong metric. The correct one is the new cases per 100,000 population, and L.A.County is still over 20. Updated weekly numbers are released every Tuesday, but as of right now, L.A. County still does not qualify.
