LHSAA Tables Split Playoff Issues

The Louisiana High School Athletic Association summer meeting is underway in Baton Rouge this week.

The commission is debating the split over football playoff picks.

In a last minute decision, the LHSAA decided to table the issue until January when this year's football season will be over. Today, the LHSAA Executive Committee discussed creating four districts instead of five, but that issue was also tabled until January.

LHSAA Executive Committee Member, Richard Lavergne says the system created inequality in some areas of the playoff season and they are trying to make the playoffs fair.

The LHSAA voted last January to separate public and private schools during football playoffs.

"We're just going to have to learn to adjust to it for another year and we'll see what happens. We'll test the waters and hopefully we can make the best decision possible. The decision though will be a tough one," said Lavergne.

This football season will be a test by fire of the split playoff system. Whether it works will determine if any changes will be made on the January agenda.
