UPDATED (5/20/20) Here’s Irion County head football coach Don Coffell reaction to the news:
“Tempered anticipation and tempered excitement,” said Coffell. I would think that everybody’s ready to get out and do something so I would expect to have good participation. These kids are workhorses. Whatever the UIL allows us to do, we’re going to get after it with excitement and start preparing.”
(5/19/20) SAN ANGELO, Texas — The University Interscholastic League (UIL) announced Tuesday morning that it’s actively working with state officials to allow schools to begin summer activities starting June 8.
The activities include limited summer strength and conditioning and marching band activities.
The announcement follows Gov. Greg Abbott’s Monday press conference in which he announced professional sports, which includes baseball, softball, football, basketball, golf, tennis and car racing, can resume in the state starting May 31 without fans.
Abbott also said that youth camps and both overnight and daytime summer camps can operate starting at the end of the month.

The UIL suspended all activities on March 13 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and canceled the rest of spring sports a month later on April 17.
