Marshall County High School Athletic Director Mike Johnson announced Friday the cancellation of the remainder of the Marshals’ football season.
In a statement, Johnson cited the number of quarantined players as the reason for ending the 2020 season.
“On behalf of the Marshall County High School Athletic Department, we would like to thank the community for the tremendous support during our fall sports season. Through these challenging times, everyone has been amazing in working with us as we navigate the COVID guidelines and attempt to provide athletic opportunities for our student-athletes,” he said.
“Unfortunately, the remainder of the Marshall County High School football season will be cancelled due to the number of players quarantined at this time. We are very proud of our players and coaches for their diligence in adhering to all safety protocols throughout the season, and especially for their efforts on the field.”
Marshall County was scheduled to play at unbeaten Louisville Trinity in the KHSAA Class 6A playoffs’ opening round. With a bye, Trinity will now face either Louisville Ballard or Louisville Eastern in the playoffs’ second round.
The Marshals finished the season with a 3-6 record and was 0-4 in the First District under first-year head coach Steve Etheridge.
Johnson said they are looking forward to seeing the strides made by the program in 2021.
