3. Return of fall football leads to tough decision for several high school athletes (FOX 17 Michigan)

Here’s a story we didn’t think about. What happens for high school athletes who heard football season was pushed to the spring and joined other sports teams — only to have football reinstated? Well, now you have a choice to make after practicing with another team for a couple of weeks.

“To get a surprise call on Thursday at 3:30 saying, ‘hey, football is back on,’ there’s a lot to be done,” said Hopkins head football coach, Cody Francis, who is now in his tenth season.

Francis is still assembling his football team, just over a week away from their first game.

“I encourage a lot of kids to go be competitors,” Francis said, “and go play other sports like cross country and soccer. Now, we’re having those conversations with them to figure out if they want to come back, or stay, or do both.”

Check out the story on Michigan football players choosing to play other sports.

What would you say to an athlete who decided to play another sport this fall in the last few weeks?
