COLUMBIA, S.C. (WMBF) – The South Carolina High School League’s executive committee unanimously passed a return to play proposal Wednesday morning that sets specific dates for the return of fall sports.

According to the proposal, which passed 18-0, high school football practices will begin on Sept. 8, with games starting Sept. 25.

Practice was originally set to start in July.

The executive committee also voted to not penalize schools who can’t play games due to COVID-19 concerns.
