GHSA Approves Spring Football Game Scrimmage

Macon, GA–The Georgia High School Association approved a proposal to allow spring football games between schools. The proposal passed today at the State Executive Meeting in Macon, GA.

Under the current GHSA Constitution and By-Laws, schools may hold ten spring practices between February 1st and the end of that school’s calendar year. The new item to the GHSA Constitution and By-Laws allows schools to replace their last spring practice with a scrimmage game between another school.

North Oconee High School Athletic Director Michael Dowis says this new scrimmage game could benefit their football program financially.

“I think there a lot of ways it would be beneficial,” said Michael Dowis. “Obviously from a financial situation, it could be beneficial if you could get a game that brings in a good gate.”

This will go effective spring 2017.
