Tatum, Texas (KLTV) - The Tatum Eagle football team will not play again until it starts district on Sept. 25 against Gladewater.

In a press release from Athletic Director and head coach Jason Holman, the district has stopped all football activities due to a “case of exposure to an individual infected with COVID-19″.

All other sports including junior high football will proceed as scheduled. The decision leaves Pittsburg this week and Hughes Springs next week without opponents.
