PARKER, Colo. (KDVR) — High School Football returned to Colorado on Thursday.
The Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA) is allowing the first games to be played.
One of the first: Columbine v. Rock Canyon.
While the game looked very similar between the lines, COVID-19 precautions were definitely in place.
For example, players kept their distance on the sidelines. No marching bands performed at half-time.
Both sides had a decent amount of fans in the stands. Blue tape on the bleachers made sure parents were also keeping their distance.
Among those here: Carlos Cromwell, watching his son, who plays running back and middle-linebacker for Columbine.
“Excited — very excited,” he says, “that we have a chance to come out and watch them play.”
He has a message for his son:
“I told him to have fun! Football is a great sport and to have some fun with it,” Cromwell said.
Columbine defeated Rock Canyon.
