NV head coach Brett Blakey

High school has new 40-second clock; Vermilion Parish Coaches react to extended time

Starting in tonight’s jamborees, high school coaches, players, and fans will have to get used to playing with the new 40-second play clock.
In conjunction with the National Federation of High Schools, the LHSAA has adopted a 40-second play clock; like the ones used in college and the pros, in place of the traditional 25-second clock.
Surrounding states are also adopting the new 40-second clock.
Before, the clock stopped until an official spotted the ball following an offensive play.
Now, the 40-second clock restarts as soon as the play is whistled dead.
