Have you heard the latest about our local football programs? South San Francisco High School head coach Dion Evans, along with school administrators, have decided that they do not have enough players for a Varsity football team this year for SSFHS. It has been announced the Jr Varsity program will continue, for now, with hopes they might have a Varsity team in 2022
This decision has come after the PAL schedule had already been released, leaving SSFHS forfeiting all their scheduled varsity games, including the annual Bell Game scheduled for November 6, 2021.
Well, it looks like El Camino High School will get to keep the Bell Game Trophy for the 4th year in a row. Which leads us to question, what will happen next season?
Youth Football across the Peninsula has seen lower numbers bringing less and less football players to the high school level as in years past.
Could this American past time be slowly dying from our County? What are your thoughts or observations? Let us know in the comments below!
