concerned with the players conditioning next year? The seniors may attempt to keep their conditioning but the underclassmen are missing valuable weight time. I am afraid next fall may very well be riddled with injuries. Anyone that knows, how long will they need to at least make it safe for the kids in conditioning?

Yup. This is going to be a very interesting offseason and beginning of the season.

Let's assume a couple of things for the moment:

It is looking increasingly likely the rest of this school year will be lost.  Assume that occurs.
Let's also assume some portion of the summer is lost as well - this too seems highly likely.

IF AAA is thinking about the benefit of the student AND school starts on time (August 2020), AAA should cancel the first 3-4 weeks of the season and allow for workouts, conditioning, etc - and then have only conference games played.

There was a time before all of this summer stuff - before 7on7s and team camps and everything else.  I think kids will be fine.  I do think zero week was a bad idea and should be tossed, IMO.  That has nothing to do with this virus, though.  I think as long as practice can start, as scheduled, and school starts, as scheduled, then the season can move forward without issue.  I understand how most schools operate during the summer, but I believe we all need to recognize that not ALL schools operate in that manner.  You'd be shocked how little some programs / athletes do over the summer and still manage to win games in the fall.

What I expect to see is schools with consistency to be successful - not as much install, etc.  Teams with new coaches are looking at essentially a lost year.  Huge turnover in the spring of 2021, as I imagine job movement has ended in 2020.

Lol, I played in the 70’s and we “conditioned” perhaps, two weeks before summer practice, and that wasn’t real hard work. Mostly we played touch football, and ran a few 40’s and 100’s. We never had a player have a knee injury, or really any injury to miss playing time in the three seasons of high school football.

Same.  As kids, we always ventured to that seat to look at how far it was from home plate.  He truly was a great player.

If Robinson allowed students to be on the football field during the dead period, there should be repercussions. The rest of the state has to follow the rules, PR is not an exception.
They’re the exception for every other rule so why not this one too.
