Druid Hills canceled the remainder of its football season Tuesday, citing injuries and low participation numbers.

Druid Hills, a Class 4A school in DeKalb County, finished 2-8 the previous two seasons but has lost games to Redan, Miller Grove and Mays by a combined 168-0 this season. Games with Marist (Oct. 23), Hapeville Charter (Oct. 29), Chamblee (Nov. 6), Arabia Mountain (Nov. 13 and Stephenson (Nov. 20) won’t be played, the DeKalb County Schools Athletics Department announced.

Druid Hills is the second DeKalb County school to cancel the remainder if its 2020 schedule. Clarkston, citing COVID-19 concerns, did not field a team this season.

The Georgia High School Association has stated that it will not fine schools for game contracts broken due to the pandemic, although the association hasn’t ruled officially in the Druid Hills case.
