PHS to participate in officials' clinic
From Staff Reports
Patterson High School’s football team will participate in the Louisiana High School Athletic Association’s Officials' Clinic today when it squares off against Pope John Paul High School at 4 p.m. at Joe Yenni Stadium in Metairie.
Although Patterson certainly will get valuable preseason action during the event, it is not a scrimmage, LHSAA Assistant Executive Director B.J. Guzzardo said. Rather, it is a clinic meant as a tune up for officials.
Preseason intersquad scrimmages cannot begin until Monday, and Patterson will hold its fall scrimmage on Thursday when it travels to Plaquemine High for a 5:30 p.m. matchup.
During today’s action, PHS coach Tommy Minton said his squad would be competing in full pads.
Guzzardo said quite a few teams will be competing in the event.
Guzzardo said the LHSAA chooses different schools for the event each year.
