Statistics reveal that the return of high school sports may have as much to do with where you live as it does with health concerns

In an article titled Playing Football This Fall Has Become A Partisan Political Issue, published last month on, author Clay Travis states that the continued shutdown of high school sports in some states is more about politics than health concerns over Covid-19.

Travis points out that of the 26 states with Republican governors, 25 are playing high school football this fall. Of course, the one hold out is Maryland.

On the flip side, of the 24 states with Democratic governors, 14 are not playing high school football this fall, eight are playing and two have not yet decided.

The article goes on to point out that the lack of high school football this fall could be a critical issue in the November Presidential election, especially in several tightly contested Midwestern swing states where high school football is sacred.
