Lafayette Names Former Assistant New Football Coach

by Jeff Fisher

Andy Linn has been promoted from assistant to head football coach at Lafayette High School.

Linn takes over for Paul Wheeler, who resigned at the end of a 5-5 season.  Lafayette actually finished 7-3 on the field, but had to forfeit two games at the end of the season after reporting itself for using two players that didn't have a physical examine.  Those forfeits knocked Lafayette out of the postseason.

Wheeler spent 10 years at Lafayette, leading the Rams to a 82-31 record and a 2001 Division 4 state title.

Wheeler had tried to take back his resignation that he submitted after the season, but school officials wouldn't reinstate him.

Is Spring Football Practice a Reality in Virginia?

by Jeff Fisher
Virginia High School Football Huddle

The Virginia High School League has approved a big change to practice rules that could open the door to spring football practice...although it's unlikely that that will happen.

The VHSL Executive Committee voted to allow year-round practice for all sports with the exception of three "dead periods".  The new rule, that goes into effect August 1st, allows teams to practice except for the first ten allowable practice days of another sports season as well as a one-week period during the summer.

The old rule allowed teams to practice only during their season and within a specific preseason window.

So the question spring football practice around the corner?  The answer is probably not.

Why?  The VHSL catastrophic insurance will not apply to out-of-season activities.
