Just one week into the season, both W.T. White and Hillcrest already have been forced to adjust their football schedules for reasons related to COVID-19.
The Longhorns (0-1) were scheduled to host Molina in their District 6-5A Div. I opener on Friday, but that game has been cancelled because of a positive test at Molina. As a result, WTW will get a forfeit victory and will next travel to play Carrollton R.L. Turner on Oct. 15.
Meanwhile, Hillcrest’s nondistrict game against Dallas Christian also was called off, but the Panthers found a new opponent. They will host Ferris at 7 p.m. Thursday in their home opener.
That game will serve as Hillcrest’s final tuneup prior to the start of District 6-5A Div. II play on Oct. 15 against South Oak Cliff.
Last week, Hillcrest rolled past Bryan Adams 35-7 in its season opener, while WTW fell 33-21 to Richardson Berkner.
