After a year’s hiatus due to the current pandemic, South Pasadena High’s varsity football team, under head coach Jeff Chi, took to the field Friday night to compete in their first competition since 2019.
In what has turned into an unusual spring sport, the Fall favorite pitted the Tigers against nearby Pasadena Poly in a scrimmage as a precursor for the upcoming shortened season.
It was also an inauguration of sorts as the school unveiled its newly renovated stadium and new visitor stands.

Strict safety protocols were in effect, including masks worn by all players, coaches and officials. Team members also were required to bring their own water bottles as not to share from conventional buckets that were a staple of the past.
Attendance restrictions were also enforced as only a limited number of family members were allowed to attend the scrimmage.
