Reaction from social media to the CIAC’s announcement Friday that 11-on-11 football would not take place this fall:
I feel bad for all of the High School seniors who didn't start as a junior and won't have a chance to showcase talents as seniors. If it wasn't for my senior season, I would not have had the same college experience or be the adult and professional I am today. #cthsfb https://t.co/tCobSkT1wH

My heart is broken for my kids I now have to break my kids heart for the third time. I am 100% understanding this is a pandemic, but other states are making it happen. We had a chance to create a blue print. I want to thank my AD and school for doing EVERYTHING to make this work!

Thought Process #cthsfb
CIAC. We don't want to be the bad guys so we will just say DPH won't allow football.
BOC. We don't want to be the bad guys so we will just say DPH won't allow football.
DPH. We don't care enough so who cares.
Leaders make tough decisions. No Leaders here.

I’m obviously just as upset about the fact we won’t have a season, but what the uncertainty it has done to our kids is terrible and unfair, all of our seniors have been putting in great work all summer and to have this taken from them is something I’d never imagine #cthsfb

If there is any #cthsfb players that want to go to another state DM me. There is a Texas HS that I have ties to. The coaching is A+.

#cthsfb coaches our kids need us more now than ever. Teach them that adversity happens and how to bounce back. Keep advocating for them. Don’t let this effect whether a kid gets a chance at a college education and playing at the next level or not #KeepCoachingThemInLife

@ciacsports My heart breaks for my Senior and his teammates and fellow mates across the CIAC…give these boys a chance to play. We have one of the lowest numbers across the country…do the right thing or their will be forever harm to these boys #cthsfb

State of Connecticut: YOU just FUMBLED. Ball security=Job security. I can’t begin to put into words on how I feel right now for both the players and coaches. #cthsfb
