That's what the Alabama High School Athletic Association told the high school football powerhouse Hoover High. Hoover High was attempting to play a game in Ohio on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend on ESPN2.

It's nice to see someone take a stand to keep the Sabbath holy. Whether the AHSAA should be the one saying it isn't my call. But, to say the least, it is still a high school football game so that should be kept in mind. They are STUDENTS...college football isn't even on Sundays!
