GENTILLY, La. (WGNO) – LHSAA executive director Eddie Bonine’s job one was to reunite public and private schools in the football playoffs.
He thinks that will be done in time for the 2016 football season. “Yes sir, I do,” said Bonine when he was asked if he believes select and non-select schools will play in the same football brackets, again.
Public school principals voted to segregate the playoffs in January of 2013.
Bonine make the comments at a meeting Monday morning with Catholic League principals, athletic directors, and football coaches at Brother Martin High School in Gentilly.
Bonine said if the football task force he formed asks for stiffer penalties for rules violations, he will take them to the LHSAA executive committee and ask that they be added to the handbook.
Here’s what Bonine had to say after meeting for almost two hours with the Catholic League:
