Jason Jewell on Brophy’s Decision to Delay Football Timeline

On Monday, Brophy College Prep announced athletics programs will remain in Phase 1 of their safety and training protocols until at least September 8, which means groups must remain under 10 people in size, social distancing and not using equipment.

That’s a decision that impacts fall sports, and could mean the Broncos’ 2020 football season is in question. The Arizona Interscholastic Association’s plan, at least for now, is for schools to start practice on August 17th and the first week of games would fall on the week of September 11.

Brophy head football coach Jason Jewell joined Jordan Hamm to discuss what that would mean for the program, how the decision was made and what the reaction has been in the Bronco community since the decision was announced.
