RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Injuries and low participation numbers led to an early end of the season for the John Marshall High School Football team.

The John Marshall Athletic Director Danyelle Smith confirmed the season cancellation with 8News on Wednesday.

The team did not play at all in 2020 due to COVID-19 while some teams in the region were able to play a short spring season. They returned in the fall with a team built of young players.

“We tried to keep the season going but unfortunately we had to cancel due to low participation numbers and injuries that couldn’t withstand the remaining season,” Smith said.

Marshall was scheduled to play Mills Godwin on Friday night but the game was canceled.

The Justices were 0-4 on the season before canceling the rest of the games.

Any other scheduling changes for the remainder of the season will be found on the 8News master football schedule.
