Executive director Eddie Bonine said the split between public and private schools in the LHSAA is here to stay, for now.
Bonine said there has been no proposal submitted before the deadline to alter the split. So, 9 championship games are expected to be played again in football in 2017.
Bonine made his remarks at the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation Quarterback Club at the Cannery.
“As I mentioned in this luncheon today, we had no other proposals submitted to our office, and the deadline is November 15th, for rules changes or constitutional changes,” said Bonine.
Bonine said a member of the executive committee could make a proposal, but he said that was unlikely.
Bonine said he also has had talks with Superdome officials about condensing the two weeks of state championship football games to one. But, he says he’s not sure, logistically how 9 games could be played in 3 days.
The 4 private school championship games will be played all day Friday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome at the Allstate Sugar Bowl Prep Classic.
The first game begins at 10 am.
