The Louisiana High School Athletic Association voted to separate football playoffs based on select or non-select school status as it closed out its annual convention last Friday in Baton Rouge.
LHSAA member-school principals voted 206-119 to have five football championships for its 242 nonselect or traditional public schools that will be based on school enrollment. Between 120 and 140 will be designated as select schools and will play in two football divisions, also based on enrollment.
