FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) -- In just a few weeks players will be heading back to the field after a long break, many without their parents in the stands due to some school district's new re-opening plans.
Parents we spoke with say its not an easy decision to make either way and one they're happy they don't have to make.
Everyone is happy football is playing at some capacity, and for Wylan Crawford's parents, one of them gets to at least watch their son play.
"Just to put pads on and watch him play is great," says Brad Crawford.
Wylan is a junior at Leo High School, and new EACS rules state for football games, one parent will be able to go to their son's games, while other school districts like the one Shane Harris sends his son too, will not.
"IHSAA put out their guidelines of 250 per bleacher section and same with the Governor [Eric Holcomb], I see zero and think it's a bit harsh," he says.
Many school districts in the area say the plan for no fans will only be for the first couple of weeks and be re-evaluated at a later date.
