: : Mass exodus of CA high school players?'s not that big of a deal...I've heard they're looking at a December start date with hopes of ending in April. That's more realistic...why would kids leave if other states aren't playing either?

: Some states have already allowed HS kids to start practicing, wouldn't be surprised if most states have football in September. Of course this all depends on what type of gatherings are allowed in each state, but CA is likely to have more restrictions than most if there's another outbreak.

: Yet most of the kids going to other states would probably be seniors anyway, with their CIF careers over if the 2021 season is called off. Suppose it's no big deal if they leave. Sticking around for a December-April HS year could limit a senior's college options, especially if that season ended or was postponed further.

Just being able to pack up and move is a white privilege thing. But even if that is an option, good luck finding a job out of state. Maybe the picture will be different in a few months, but mass exodus? No way. People can't afford that.
