The 2020 high school football season is going to be like no other, thanks to COVID 19.
The season officially gets underway Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with parish teams playing real games.
But before you walk into a high school football stadium in Vermilion Parish, there are new rules to follow before, during and after the game.
Buy tickets now
High school football gets underway on Thursday.
While college and pro football are in their second week, high school begins Thursday and Friday with scrimmages.
All parish schools will be in action. Playing Thursday will be Kaplan, Abbeville, Gueydan and Erath.
Kaplan will battle Eunice in Ed Douglas Memorial Stadium, starting at 5:30 p.m.
Kaplan will be selling pre-sold tickets at the front office in the school. They are $5 each. To get into the stadium, one must have a ticket. No one can walk up to the gate the night of the scrimmage and buy a ticket.
The Louisiana Football Team saw two players pick up Sun Belt Conference honors after Elijah Mitchell was named the Offensive Player of the Week and Rhys Byrns was named the Special Teams Player of the Week, the league office announced on Monday.
With the announcement, Louisiana has now had at least two players earn the award in consecutive weeks for just the fourth time in the Sun Belt era and the 23rd time it has had two earn the honors in the same week overall.
