Ware County officials are looking to replace Bartram Trail for the August 27 home opener.
Bartram Trail, the No. 3 team in Florida's highest classification - 8A - canceled the matchup Monday afternoon, August 16.
This marked the second time in as many years the game has been canceled. The Florida High School Association delayed the start of last season due to COVID.
"We have sent out a filler to schools (Georgia) we are looking for an opponent," head coach Jason Strickland stated while speaking at Tuesday's Rotary Club meeting at the Okefenokee Golf & Country Club. "Hopefully we will know something in the next day or two."
The pre-season top-ranked Gators open the 2021 season Friday night in Adel against Cook High.
