Display of Sportsmanship Saves One of the Area’s Biggest High School Football Games

AFTER A MINI COVID-19 OUTBREAK ON THE TROUP COUNTY FOOTBALL TEAM, THEIR GAME AGAINST CARVER IS POSTPONED

COVID-19 is opponent that football teams across the country have to account for. After a small outbreak on the Troup County football team, events are shut down for the week.

However, Troup doesn’t have to forfeit Friday’s game against Carver. The GHSA allows for games to be rescheduled if both teams can find a date for the game to be played.

“We’re very fortunate because if Carver did not agree to it we would have had to forfeit,” says Troup County football head coach, Tanner Glisson. “We’re very grateful that Georgia High School [Association] gives us the ability to work it out. I think everybody wants to win the game on the field.”

Troup and Carver will now play on November 1st.
