Truman's homecoming football game with Raytown South was canceled because a Raytown South player tested positive for COVID-19, according to Truman activities director Daniel Bieser.

Bieser said Truman received information from Raytown South Friday afternoon that one of its players was awaiting test results. The game was tentatively postponed to Saturday at noon awaiting another test on the player, but the test came back positive, forcing the Raytown South team to quarantine and canceling the game.

Truman held its homecoming activities Saturday morning at the stadium, crowning the king and queen. Attendance was limited only to participants on the candidates' pass list.
