Elbert Co high school football game is latest coronavirus casualty

Friday game was to have been Blue Devils home opener

The high school football game that was to have been played tomorrow night in Elberton has been canceled because of COVID: the Elbert County Blue Devils were to have hosted Whitefield Academy in their home opener.

From Elbert Co HS principal Josh Rider…

“Due to the growing number of positive cases and quarantines from exposure, we believe it is in the best interest of all parties involved to cancel at this time. Although we all look forward to seeing our football team, band, auxiliary, and cheerleaders in the Granite Bowl, this contest cannot be viewed with greater emphasis than the health and well-being of all our students, coaches, fans and those from Whitefield Academy.”
