What does Cathedral’s positive case mean for the rest of the football programs in the city? Did they mess it up for everyone?
Might all be fake news that is spreading throughout the globe however the fact remains that a multitude of people are buying into it and that makes it a reality and that is the truth.
Does cathedral even have facilities to conduct workouts or were they just meeting st a gym or park. That could have went into it.
Cathedral does have a weight room and a gym lol
Per EP Gridiron's twitter page
The list of athletics programs in US universities reporting coronavirus cases is growing. It includes
Several Cowboys and Texans players recently tested positive for the coronavirus. Ezekiel Elliott is one of several Cowboys players to test positive for COVID-19
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news(real news) but there will be NO fall sports. . Districts will not risk the liability of kids getting sick on their watch. . SISD is the ginipig here and as soon as the first case hits the ripple affect will begin throughout the city.
Lets be clear there is no liability for the school districts as there is no way for it to be proven that the virus was contracted at the school.
there would be absolutely no way to prove it. Have you been out in el paso. It is business as usual
We had Cathedral do it and Socorro HS postpones/cancelled their workouts because a coach has symptoms the Friday before the start of the workouts imagine when the first case of a student pops up, no way it will continue. . It’s unfortunate reality
I went as far as to recommend testing of each athlete and coach prior to the start of workouts and every 2 weeks but guess it was a little two much for them to consider
When was I outspoken against testing. I stated that there would be zero way for anyone to prove exposure happened at the school. I was speaking on the post about districts worried about liability
Unfortunately, the virus is here to stay and the vaccine is months away from mass production. Districts have a few options as do states when it all comes down to it.
They can either just accept that at some point a student, teacher or staff member may contract the virus, and still proceed with business as usual, as if that person had any other illness that required them to be away at some point.
Or, as we have seen across the state, they will shut it down for 14 days in order to disinfect and not allow people to congregate with one another.
School districts have been on the side of caution, as I'm sure they don't want anyone of their students / staff getting sick to the point of a severe hospitalization or death.
Everyone was really excited to get Strength and Conditioning started around the state, and each district ultimately put in place strict guidelines to follow when it came to athletes and their safety. Unfortunately, you can't control what those student athletes and staff do when they are not on campus.
I believe this will be a very unique and challenging year for all involved in high school athletics and schools in general. I would be ready for some radical changes this coming year.
With all the reports coming out from the pro, college and high school teams I don't see a football season happening this year.
Blue Jays and Phillies just shut down after 5 positive test. As long as people freak out every time theres a positive test, we won't start anything. We either learn to live with this or we wait for the vaccine. Originally, the goal was to flatten the curve and not overwhelm the hospitals. Now the goal is a vaccine. Its over. No FALL SPORTS.
Now, a company says they can get the vaccine out in September. If this happens then we can hope for a late start. Otherwise, we may get Spring Football or no football
Yesterday it was reported that Clemson football had 23 players test positive for coronavirus
Yes and none of them contracted it at the workouts they all already had it because its business as usual
7on7 competitions taking place are jeopardizing the season. I was hopeful for the season. Not anymore.
High school kids who play football are not paid, Not worth the risk. Too early to start. Move the start date to early next year.
Smart thing to do is have no football this year
That's my 2 cents on this topic.
There is a simple fix for that. Those high schoolers that are right now participating in 7on7s and Combines events should not be allowed to participate in their high school football team's strength and conditioning workouts.
No football twenty twenty
Strength and Conditioning workouts are beginning to be cancelled throughout the state of Texas and the rest of the country.
Bad news coming out today probably by tonight for EP HS football. This will probably tip the scale to no football or fall sports. Sad but necessary
Iron horse stop spreading BS false rumors. Pessimistic people is whats wrong with our society right now. Everything will be fine
I know baseball is way different than football but the MLB announced that they will be starting their 60 game season in July.
Can anyone explain how Hanks will be starting workouts Monday, only 5 days after finding a positive covid result within coaching staff and other coaches exposed to this coach. What happened to the the 14 day quarantine rule??. . Socorro HS postpones their start until July 6 and their coach was negative. Someone can explain??
I do not know the rush to get everyone back to workouts and training, Texas Covid cases are on the way up. I think more caution should be taken, Are any teams that are working out here in EP really State Title contenders?
Because let's get back to normal. Stop being one if the sheep this virus has a low mortality rate and the people that are in jeopardy if being negatively affected by this should stay home. 90% plus people heal on their own with no medical attention. The ones that need medical help have other issues that complicates things. So stop with the hysteria and let's play.
That in a fantasy world would be great... but as of now 3 EP schools are suspending workouts, give it another week more will postpone. I really don't see season happening. Sure you can social distance while working out what happens when you really have to be in close proximity, locker rooms, busses, huddles, then comes tackling. Then you have older coaches, 40, 50, 60 year olds, they are age of most infections. Well hope all goes well. Best wishes to all teams.
It is very easy to be cavalier and say if I get it I get or it has a 90 something percent
survival rate, and or to say just take care of the vulnerable, these football players go
to classes and if there is school the risk is to those students may have underlying conditions, remember students
have not yet been truly exposed as school ended early so the big concern is the rate of infection
among the young and whom they might have contact with later. So the "sheep" ideology has actually gone by
the wayside as we are seeing record cases in Texas. I have to believe the one thing we know is that we don't know.
The WHO and CDC changes their directives daily. So the idea that football can go to contact within the next 4 to 5
weeks will probably be very unlikely
