BLAND, Va. (AP) - A school district in southwest Virginia has canceled its football season because it doesn’t have enough willing players.

The Roanoke Times reports that Bland County High School has canceled its varsity and junior varsity schedules for the upcoming school year.

Bland assistant principal and athletic director Tyler Eastep said officials made the decision when the team’s membership dropped below 10. He said he is unsure if there will be a team for the 2020 season.

Two Virginia high schools canceled their football seasons later year due to lack of interest.
