Still looking for one more, Shaw wants it known that Aug. 21, Oct. 2 and Oct. 9 are open dates for a willing opponent. Rabun County is a Class AA state contender that features blue-chip quarterback recruit Gunner Stockton.
The South Carolina High School League voted Wednesday to move the start of all sports until September because of the pandemic.
Eight of the 34 Georgia-South Carolina games were set for August, so they can’t be played as scheduled. The other 26 games could be played, but it won’t be easy. The South Carolina plan calls for teams to play their region contests first. South Carolina is proposing a seven-game season, which leaves little if any opportunity for non-region or interstate games.
Among the best games that could go unplayed are Wren at Buford on Aug. 21 and Dutch Fork at Brookwood on Sept. 25. Wren (Class AAAA) and Dutch Fork (AAAAA) are reigning South Carolina champions.
Buford director of football operations Justin Johnson said the Buford-Wren game is still on for now.
Also Wednesday, Virginia’s high school association voted not to play football in the fall. Georgia remained on track and announced Wednesday that football teams could issue helmets to be worn for the first time in summer beginning Monday.
Summer workouts are voluntary. Football teams may hold mandatory practices beginning July 27.
