High school football teams around the state will have mandatory time-outs during the first three weeks of the season to protect players against the heat.

The Alabama High School Athletic Association said Friday the heat time-outs will be mandatory for the first dead ball period after the six-minute mark in each quarter.

The season begins August 30th or 31st.

The new rule comes as the state remains in an oppressive heat wave with temperatures rising above 100 degrees for nearly two weeks.
