MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — Three-time state champion UMS-Wright has shut down football practice after a positive COVID-19 test.
The team, which includes over 80 students, started the state-mandated 14-day quarantine on Aug. 3. School started today, and the Bulldogs will return to practice next Monday. The first game is a week from Friday.
Coach Terry Curtis said it will be very difficult to get his team ready in such a short time for the opening game against the Baker Hornets. UMS-Wright, Bayside Academy and St. Luke’s football programs are currently in COVID-19 quarantine. All three teams are set to return on Aug. 17.
