Governor Gretchen Whitmer has approved the start of high school football in the state of Michigan in the latest executive order. Will the Greater Lansing area school districts approve play? How comfortable are parents with allowing their sons to lace up the cleats?

On today's Current Sports with Al Martin, we discuss the latest executive order from Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, which allows high school football to take place. Is this the right decision and how many parents are comfortable with sending their sons back on the gridiron? Also, Al touches on the Brooklyn Nets hire of Steve Nash as their next head coach. Some have called the Nash hire an example of 'white privilege.' Al disagrees. Listen to why.
