Facing a decision of monumental importance to students, schools and parents, Gov. Tom Wolf and the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association traded punts this week.
In a press conference Thursday, Wolf announced the state would recommend, but not require, that schools postpone sports until January. That came as a shock to the PIAA board, which had already slated Monday as the beginning of the practice season for football, with other sports to start a week later. On Friday the board pushed that date back two weeks, hoping for more clarification from the governor.
