Football to begin

High school football teams will scrimmage Sept. 24-26, according to a schedule approved by state officials Wednesday.

Eight games will start their week 3 game on Oct. 1-3 with a 32-team playoff bracket Nov. 27-28, and the 2020 Prep Classic will be held Dec. 26-28 in New Orleans at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Louisiana High School Athletic Association's executive committee with Executive Director Eddie Bonine announced the schedule Wednesday. They also announced football teams can begin practicing in full pads today.

The board approved the select schools participation at the same venues as the non-select schools for the current school year.

Cross country, swimming and volleyball began competition in Phase II of the state's recovery plan. 

The LHSAA staff has developed fall sport-specific event guidelines for schools when conducting interscholastic competition. Competition guidelines will be posted soon.
