Parker High School is ready to play the rest of its football season on the road after the Colorado River Indian Tribes rejected its COVID-19 mitigation plan, school superintendent Brad Sale said.

Parker was supposed to play host to Wellton Antelope last week and unbeaten Phoenix Arizona Lutheran on Friday night in 2A games.

In Parker, Sale said, some lots are on deeded land and others are on the reservation. The football stadium is on land that has been donated by the Colorado River Indian Tribes, he said. It has been there since the late 1970s.

In August, Sale said, due to COVID-19 concerns, the tribal council passed a resolution that would require the use of face masks for all persons on the reservation, regardless of vaccination status when outside of the home.
