Spring football games set for next month

Spring football is in the air and slated to start throughout the state of Florida by the end of the month and at this time last year, the coronavirus pandemic had canceled all spring football activities. Now with schools back in session full go, it’s likely high school sports will make it through an entire calendar year and that means spring ball is back for high school football. We have compiled the spring football games for every high school team in Hernando County.
