Storms mean changes for High School football games
OKLAHOMA CITY — Nothing will stop students from cheering on their favorite football team Friday night, not even approaching severe storms.
“So football is football. You play in the snow. You play in the rain, and you just don`t play in the lightning,” Coach Chris Vandersypen said.
It’s up to each school to decide on a time change due to inclement weather. Nearly two dozen schools bumped up kickoff times around the metro. “It won`t affect us too much. We might not throw the ball as much because it`s raining and stuff. It`s a little tougher to get a good grip on the ball, but outside of that not really,” Jake Lewis, Bishop McGuinness Quarterback said.
Greg Savely Bishop McGuinness Athletic Director said the field is in good shape to take on the anticipated storms. “Our grass is very tight. It`s pretty low and it`s pretty strong so I think it will hold up pretty well. If we get a whole lot of rain we`ll get some spots that are pretty slushy,” he said.
But there’s one thing you can expect when it comes to Oklahoma weather. “It`s Oklahoma weather so just expect the unexpected,” Anthony Bryant, Southeast High School Football Player said.
