Spring football back in Pasco County
PASCO COUNTY — Pasco County high schools will be allowed to have spring football games again starting this year according to Pasco athletic director Phil Bell.
The ban on spring games started 19 years ago, but this season all 12 public schools will be able to play games with other Pasco schools.
Part of the decision was made to bring more college scouts to the county during the spring, which is a time known for recruiting.
Details about the format of the games are not clear yet, but two are likely. The first is to play traditional games at different locations, while the other is to play them all at one location on the same day, known as a jamboree.
