Brownstown football practice ban shortened


Brownstown Central Superintendent Tim Taylor provided an update Wednesday afternoon stating the school’s football team will be allowed to resume workouts July 24 instead of July 29.

A day earlier it was announced the Braves must cease practice until the end of the month because a player tested positive for the coronavirus.

Taylor made a very short announcement Wednesday, reading, "In-person workouts may resume on Friday, July 24."

Previously, Taylor stated the two-week hiatus was determined by guidance from the Jackson County Health Department.

After closing down all spring high school sports, Indiana high schools have begun tentative workouts emphasizing conditioning over blocks of time this summer with plans to lead to full fall sports season.

Brownstown had been working on conditioning since July 6 when a player was informed he had received a positive result Tuesday night.
