TALLAHASSEE, Fla.| The Florida A&M University Department of Athletics has announced its decision to opt out of the 2021 spring seasons for football, indoor track & field and volleyball.
“Florida A&M Athletics’ decision to opt-out and forgo the 2021 spring football, indoor track & field and volleyball season was made with the health and safety of our student-athletes as our top priority. This was a collective decision with our coaches and staff, given the varying circumstances that COVID-19 has created for our program.” said Florida A&M VP/Director of Athletics Kortne Gosha. “We are certainly disappointed that some of our student-athletes will not be able to compete this year; however, we will shift our focus to achieving our academic priorities while planning a safe return to play in fall 2021, our inaugural season in the Southwest Athletic Conference.”
