TSSAA: Decision on McMinn/Dobyns-Bennett high school football game expected Monday


TENNESSEE (WATE) — The decision for a high school football playoff game called off Friday night is expected soon.

The Dobyns-Bennett/McMinn County high school football playoff game was called off due to what officials are calling an “unforeseen COVID-19 situation.” McMinn traveled to Kingsport to square off against the Tribe.

While many reports are circulating on social media, the TSSAA confirmed Saturday a decision will be made on Monday.

TSSAA Executive Director Bernard Childress said both schools were asked to submit facts as they see them by Monday morning.
