Football Will Bring Us Back Together

SAN ANGELO, TX -- As the tumultuous 2020 continues, this week the UIL, the governing body of high school sports in Texas has given the green light for schools to begin summer strength and conditioning programs. 

Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, The UIL announced this week the expansion of groups outdoors from 15 to 25 and indoors from 10 to 15. In addition, disinfecting equipment has also been reduced from a requirement to a strong suggestion while no access to locker rooms is still in place. 

With the return of summer strength and conditioning programs at no more than 90 minutes per day comes sports specific instruction at 60 minutes per day of which the San Angelo Central Bobcats are taking full advantage. 

Watch as San Angelo Central Head Football Coach Brent Davis talks about his team's return to an organized setting, how sports can play a role in our society along with his thoughts on San Angelo Stadium potentially at a certain capacity this season.

There might not be football if those players, their coaches, their medics don't start wearing masks. What is the message to the young players and medics if the coach does not require masks or distancing measures? Yeah, right, you're all bullet-proof, right up until you can't play because...pandemic! Forget about bringing us together, for what? The virus? How about bringing us together to save endangered children, to recognize our neighborhood heroes, to lower the speed limit on the loop and its ramps, to nail down all these strangers in town about their Covid-19 status? Priorities much?

What is it with this place? Idiotic goals for football, old rodeo stories, vehicle crashes on a daily basis, drugs, murder, child abuse and endangerment, general stupidity setting a fire in a high wind. How lovely.


Some individuals can be very intelligent and exercise common sense, however, never underestimate the absolute stupidity of the mass population.
