Today the NJCAA board of regents granted eligibility relief to all student athletes regardless of sport season participation in the 2020-21 academic year.

The language in that decision could even apply to the MACCC which is the only junior college league in the entire country playing football this fall.

The NJCAA otherwise canceled all fall sports, postponing them to the spring due to the coronavirus pandemic.
