TUCSON, Arizona — On Tuesday night, local players and coaches were reacting to the end of the high school football season for most teams.

"It was one of those things where you knew it it was going to come, but it doesn’t make it any easier," said Sahuaro senior Trevion Watkins.

I knew it was coming, but right now it’s upsetting because it was my last season and we only got to play three games of the six we had," said Sahuaro senior Damon Robledo.

"I guarantee you that I can speak for the others that we are grateful that we got to play some games," said Sahuaro senior Tommy Cullop. "We got to have some practices, we got to have anything of a season.

"I totally agree with Pima health and what they feel up is the best way to keep our kids safe," said Kelly.

Kelly’s Falcons played just two games

"You know it’s disappointing because of all the work that went in to it, and the precautions that we all took. I’m sure every school going through this."

Kelly says he feels most for his seniors, and has a message for his team.

"You never know when something is going to come to an end.
We just have to continue to do everything the right way and give the best efforts."

There are three teams who are continuing to play. Salpointe, Pusch Ridge Christian, and Benson are all scheduled to play in their respective AIA playoff brackets.
