High School Sports

While we may not be inching closer to regular season football games in Louisiana, we are to the start of practice.

According to the Louisiana High School Athletic Association (LHSAA), football teams in the state have the option of beginning official practices on Monday, August 3. Programs will be allowed to wear helmets, use hand shields, allow 7-on-7 scrimmages (with no contact), and groups of 25 will be allowed.

Last week, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards extended “Phase 2”, until August 7.

On July 13, LHSAA Executive Director Eddie Bonine spoke before the state’s legislature and detailed Louisiana must enter “Phase 4“. But, according to the document, in the above Tweet, Bonine states a requirement for “Phase 3” and establishes a “positive trend” for coronavirus cases.
