The beginning of the 2021 high school football season is now less than a month away.

After a COVID-19-filled 2020 season that featured abbreviated schedules across the country and some states not taking the field at all, high school football is set for a return to normalcy beginning in August. Numerous states will kick off their season during the second weekend of the month, while countless others will follow suit in the weeks after. By the end of the first weekend of September, high school football will be back in full swing across the United States.

Today, USA Today High School Sports takes a look at when exactly each of the 50 states will begin their respective high school football season.
