High school sports teams in Michigan are sharing a similar struggle trying to control COVID-19.

Corunna High School Head Football Coach Kyle Robinson is in the middle of a season like nobody’s ever seen before.

The same goes for Swartz Creek Head Football Coach Joe Spencer, and many other coaches and players around the area.

“This is a very special time, not only with 2020 and COVID, but just being out here and having the season with all the restrictions we’ve had; time and living in the moment is the most important thing,” Robinson said.

Both teams follow MHSAA rules and guidelines, and stay in close communication with the health department.

“In football, that can be a very interesting challenge, and we’ve had a couple kids that got contact tracing and had to quarantine.” Spencer said.

Swartz Creek High School shut down for a week of extra cleaning before students could come back to face-to-face learning.

“It’s an even playing field. It just comes down to who’s in charge and how you manage things.” Robinson said.
