High school sports amid the pandemic: 10 things that look different this fall
American Fork (Utah) athletic director Jeremy Lewis was thrilled that high school sports were back, but he had an obligation to make sure all new protocols were followed. So, in the middle of the first half of his football team's varsity game with Timpview (Provo) last week, he halted play, got on a loudspeaker and told the estimated 1,000 fans in the stands to wear masks, get back to their assigned seats and practice general social distancing guidelines laid out by state and local officials.

Otherwise, the game wouldn't go on.

We're still in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, after all.

For the most part, fans obliged immediately, the game went on a few minutes later, American Fork prevailed 31-21 to move to 2-0 and high school sports continues throughout the state of Utah and in many other parts of the country.

Heading into the final weekend of August, 16 of the 50 states have decided to wait until 2021 to partake in high school sports due to COVID-19. The other 34 have committed to play in the fall with seven already having kicked things off and 10 more scheduled to do so by Friday. All have written up new safety guidelines that have led to many new rules and new looks in and around respective playing fields.

An athletic director stopping a game is one of those new looks. Here are nine others we've seen over the past two weeks:

• Masked attackers — Tall, athletic front-row players on the volleyball court can be intimidating enough. But many players are choosing to don masks — they are not required but recommended in many states — giving an even more ominous look from the other side of the net.

New handshake line — Instead of lining up on either side of the 50-yard-line to shake in football, the COVID-19 acknowledgement is to line up on the hashes, raise a helmet and shout out appropriate sentiments, whatever those may be.

Check, and double check, that schedule — The calendar is subject to change. Contests have been and likely will continue to change, many at the last moment. In Indiana last week, Center Grove (Greenwood) had its opener put in jeopardy because Warren Central (Indianapolis) was under quarantine. Center Grove quickly rescheduled, beat Decatur Central (56-14) and now plays a cleared Warren Central squad on Friday.

Buy those tickets — With limited seating capacities due social distancing measures, football games are selling out quickly. Fremont (Provo, Utah) posted on Twitter today that tickets to its home game Friday with Roy were all gone.

Friday night stream — With fan restrictions and games selling out, fans — even parents — might be confined to their home computers, laptops or phones to watch the action. Same goes for reporters, too. Standout performers might be doing some of their post-game interviews via phone. The University Interscholastic League, the governing body of public schools in Texas, recently announced it will lift a ban temporarily on live telecasts and streaming of football games to allow fans to at least watch games.

Spreading out — The tight shoulder-to-shoulder, player-on-top-of-player mob look on football sideline now looks more like a pre-game exercise line. Mandates to keep players at a distance stretches now 80 yards from the 10-yard-line to the 10. It used to be a 50-yard team box, from the 25 to the 25.

One-sided — The days of switching sides after each volleyball set is now done. Teams are required to stay on one side of the court for the entire match.

Temperature checks — Ready, aim, thermometer. Not only are players constantly asked to remove their helmets to test for fevers with new digital thermometers, but fans allowed into games in many places must go through the same testing, too.

• Air celebrations — It's difficult, almost sad, to squelch teens from celebrating any triumph on the field or court, but guidelines highly recommend they are done without physical contact. So, young athletes of today are inventing new touchless celebrations that are both inspirational and, of course, creative.

Despite all the precautions, masking and social distancing, once the players are on the field and the competition commences, it all looks and feels pretty much like it did before COVID-19.

And that's a very appealing picture.

Issued by North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper on Nov. 23, Executive Order No. 180 called for expanded face covering requirements. That has trickled down to high school sports, with athletes being required to wear masks during games and skill development sessions whether they are held indoor or outdoor.

The order went into effect Nov. 25 and runs through Dec. 11. According to the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Servies, it requires that everyone needs to wear a mask whenever they are with someone who is not from the same household. The order also adds the mask requirement to several additional settings including any public indoor space even when maintaining six feet of distance, gyms even when exercising, all schools public and private and all public or private transportation when traveling with people outside of the household.

Basketball practice is scheduled to begin Dec. 7 for NCHSAA-affiliated programs but the NCISAA tipped off last month and has already started to adapt to the new norm for the 2020-21 season in the Tar Heel State.

"Kids are resilient," Charlotte Country Day head coach David Carrier told the Charlotte Observer. "Kids adjust to things like this a lot quicker than adults."

The order extends to delayed NCHSAA fall sports that got underway in November like cross country and volleyball. The state reported 5,410 new COVID-19 cases Thursday with 44 deaths.

"We are asking our coaches, student-athletes and administrators for their continued vigilance and cooperation in these measures, including making sure to properly socially distance during skill development sessions and adherence to the mask mandate," NCHSAA executive director Que Tucker told the Lake Norman Media Group. "We all must do our part."

On the girls basketball side, Faith Christian Academy (Goldsboro) and Raleigh Christian Academy (Raleigh) were among the first to take the court Tuesday under the new order. MaxPreps photographer Steven Worthy was there to capture that moment.

High school girls basketball: Longest all-time winning streaks - OFFICIAL
High school girls basketball: Longest all-time winning streaks
The past two seasons have seen the end of some of the more amazing winning streaks in girls high school basketball history. Yet, the most amazing part might be that none of them even came close to breaking the overall national record.

Central Plains (Claflin, Kan.) had its streak of 138 wins end last December while Martins Mill (Ben Wheeler, Texas) had a streak of 116 wins end last winter. Strafford (Mo.) had a streak of 123 wins end in 2019. However, none of them came within 80 wins of the all-time record of 218, set by Baskin (La.) between 1947 and 1953. Even more incredible, following the loss that ended its streak, Baskin won 71 more games. That's a mark of 289-1.

MaxPreps has put together a list of girls basketball win streaks of 50 or more games. While boys basketball has just seven streaks of 100 or more games, girls basketball has 34. The team with the longest current list is Hopkins (Minnetonka, Minn.), which stands at 74.

The list for consecutive wins includes all games, not just regular season or league wins. If there are any corrections or additions to the list, please e-mail Kevin Askeland at [email protected]

Sources for the list include the NFHS record book, website by Paul Luchter, state association websites, Cal-Hi Sports Almanac by Mark and Nelson Tennis, MaxPreps team pages and research via

2021 NFL Draft: Younger brother of projected No. 2 pick Zach Wilson expected to lead national high school football power Corner Canyon next season - OFFICIAL
2021 NFL Draft: Younger brother of projected No. 2 pick Zach Wilson expected to lead national high school football power Corner Canyon next season
Corner Canyon (Draper) has ascended to the elite of high school football programs in the state of Utah and nationally over the past few seasons. The Chargers are riding a 40-game win streak and fresh off their third consecutive state championship.

Head coach Eric Kjar has emerged as one of the best offensive minds in the country and already has a strong line of former quarterback proteges that includes 2020 MaxPreps National Player of the Year Jaxson Dart and Cole Hagen.

Before Dart and Hagen, there was Zach Wilson, projected by many to be the No. 2 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Kjar became the head coach at Corner Canyon after eight years at Jordan (Sandy) and just prior to Wilson's senior season.

As a junior, Wilson threw for over 2,800 yards and 21 touchdowns as the full-time starter, but the Chargers went 6-5 and lost in the Region 7 play-in game.

The next season it clicked for Wilson, Kjar and Corner Canyon.

Wilson led the Chargers to an 11-1 record throwing for nearly 3,000 yards and 24 touchdowns while adding 700-plus yards on the ground and eight scores. The only loss came in the 5A state semifinals against Skyridge (Lehi), 34-33.

Zach Wilson started for one season under head coach Eric Kjar at Corner Canyon.
Kjar is 51-1 during his four years at Corner Canyon with three state titles.

Expectations will remain high next fall with a familiar name likely to take over under center — Isaac Wilson.

Zach Wilson's soon-to-be-sophomore younger brother played sparingly as a freshman while backing up Dart. The 5-foot-11 160-pounder completed 4 of 6 pass attempts for 27 yards.

Isaac competed at the Under Armour All-America camp series earlier this spring in Phoenix and the offers should start coming soon.

He's not the only Wilson on the roster as Micah Wilson returns at linebacker. He was named to the Utah All-State second team after racking up 133 tackles and recently committed to BYU.

The 6-foot-3 210-pound rising senior will be the third member of the Wilson family to attend BYU. 

Josh Wilson is a linebacker for the Cougars and played a huge role on defense during Corner Canyon's two state titles in 2018 and 2019. 

Expect the Chargers to be ranked in our preseason MaxPreps Top 25 later this summer. They finished No. 17 in 2019 and followed that up with a spot at No. 9 in 2020.
