Tampa, FL-- The Republican National Convention has forced the rescheduling of the first week of the Hillsborough County High School Football season.

All games scheduled for Friday, Aug. 31 have been moved to the following night, Saturday, Sep. 1.  That is week 1 of the regular season.

Because of the Convention that week in Tampa, Hillsborugh County Athletics were concerned about security.  Although the Convention  ends Thursday night, officials were concerned that local law enforcement officers would not be able to work as off-duty security for the games, until Saturday.
