CLINTON - After the Louisiana High School Athletic Association voted to split the football playoff brackets for public and private schools, some schools are considering other options.

The decision has generated controversy among high school athletic programs. There has also been talk of breaking away from the LHSAA and joining an independent school association.

Silliman Institute was a longtime member of the Louisiana Independent Sports Association before it folded, then joined the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools.

Silliman Athletic Director Sharon Kline says the school has more control over issues like scheduling and prayer before games by remaining independent. She admits that travel can be a challenge during the playoffs for certain sports.

Some Silliman fans tell News 2 they would like to see Silliman rejoin a Louisiana organization. They question how fair officiating is during out-of-state games.
