Oklahoma high school football: Moore alters workout schedule after player tests positive for COVID-19

The Moore football program has suspended its workouts until Aug. 3, coach Brad Hill said in a letter to parents on Sunday. 

The letter was also posted through the program’s Twitter account.

The decision stems from a varsity player testing positive for COVID-19. The program announced the positive test Friday and said the Lions’ workout schedule would be updated.

The team’s last workout was Tuesday.

Moore football is the latest program in the metro this summer to have a member test positive for COVID-19, joining Mustang boys basketball, Douglass football and others.

Football practices in the state are set to begin on Aug. 10.

Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association executive director David Jackson told reporters Thursday that fall sports will begin as planned but moving them to the spring remains a possibility.
