The highly anticipated season opener between Highland Park High School and Austin Westlake has been canceled after several players on Highland Park's team tested positive for COVID-19.

The team also canceled scrimmages last night against Euless Trinity.

District leaders say they’re consulting health officials on how to move forward ... but for now, the team’s future is unclear.

Highland Park isn't the only football team that's seen an outbreak, just this week Mineral Wells, Keller Fossil Ridge and Caddo Mills all had to cancel games as well because players tested positive for COVID-19.
