Michigan’s high school football playoffs resume this weekend.

The fall sports playoffs were shut down two months ago as COVID-19 surged in the state.

A spokesman for the Michigan High School Athletic Association is confident they will finish the playoffs this month.

“We haven’t spoken a word in our office about having this shut down again,” says Geoff Kimmerly.

Kimmerly credits efforts to test athletes and others with their ability to schedule more than 30 games this weekend.

One of the teams originally scheduled to play this weekend had to forfeit after being exposed to a probable positive case of COVID-19.

High school volleyball, along with swimming and diving, tournaments will resume next week.
