After Michael, schools forced to postpone football games

October 12, 2018

Tropical Storm Michael left several inches of rain and downed trees and power lines in North Carolina on Thursday, forcing many school systems to close on Friday.

Due to school closures, many high school football games have been postponed.

HighSchoolOT.com is tracking football schedule changes due to Michael. To report a schedule change, send an email to highschoolot@wral.com.

Wake County Schools discussed allowing teams to play football games on Friday despite the district being closed. On Friday morning, school officials announced that no games involving Wake County teams would be played on Friday night.

The studio show on “HighSchoolOT Live” will not air on Friday night due to the amount of games that have been postponed. Some individual games will be carried live:

“Football Friday” with Jeff Gravley will still air at 11:35 p.m. on Friday night on WRAL-TV. It will also stream live on HighSchoolOT.com and on the HighSchoolOT app.

The N.C. High School Athletic Association office in Chapel Hill was without power on Friday morning, which was impacting the association’s ability to accept tennis regional entires. Phones were also out at the NCHSAA office.
