Taylor ISD has not held homecoming but could still celebrate later this season.

After a positive case of COVID-19 within the football program, the Ducks won’t see action for at least the next two weeks.

“These are details that we are still working out,” said Robert Little, Taylor ISD athletic director. "We are very early into this and as you can imagine, it is very chaotic right now. We will get information out as it becomes available.”

The case was confirmed Tuesday, Oct. 13, as Taylor prepared for a road game against Canyon Lake, originally scheduled for Oct. 16. Just before noon an announcement was made that all football practices and games would be suspended until Oct. 27. This included all varsity, JV, freshman and junior high games and practices.

According to Little, there still may be plans to host a homecoming game at the end of the season. He said it could be moved to the final home game against LBJ, which would also be senior night.

As for the games against Canyon Lake and Burnet, there is still no confirmation on if the district games will be rescheduled.
