SOUTH JORDAN — Bingham’s scheduled season opener against Weber this Friday has been canceled after three Bingham players tested positive for COVID-19.

It’s the first high school football game in Utah that has been canceled because of COVID-19. Utah starts its season this week, a week earlier than any other state in the country.

Bingham coach Dave Peck said his team dealt with some positive cases during the summer, which forced the program to cancel some scrimmages. Now it has forced the team to cancel its opener.

Peck said the three players haven’t shown any symptoms but got tested after a family member tested positive.

Bingham’s season opener is now slated for next Friday at Skyridge, and Peck said the status of that game is up in the air as of now.

Weber is scheduled to play Bountiful at home in Week 2.
