There is still no definite date that has been provided by the Louisiana High School Athletic Association (LHSAA) as to when the prep football season will begin but at least teams across the state got the opportunity to begin practices.
In a statement provided by the LHSAA last week, schools across the state were given the option to begin 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.
“I was hoping that by now we would know more about when the season will start but at least this a step in the right direction,” said JHHS head football coach Terrance Blankenship. “We are excited about getting the opportunity to work with the guys again.”
