The high school football postseason will remain split into private and public if the member schools preliminary vote is any indicator.

At the annual LHSAA Convention in Baton Rouge on Thursday school principals and administrators voted to keep the split that was enacted for the previous football season.

In all nine different classifications were in place in the postseason, creating multiple state titles for football teams. The addition of the games allowed more schools to participate in the postseason, including schools that finished the regular season with losing or non-winning records.

Opponents of the move have argued that it waters down the competition in the postseason and gives an inaccurate depiction of who the best teams in the state actually are.
