The 2013 Tee Cotton Bowl may be jeopardy after the LHSAA voided the contract for the game. Game organizer Tim Fontenot says the issue came up after Sacred Heart High School and Ville Platte High agreed to swap home-team designation this year. Fontenot says a vocal group of Ville Platte High boosters who were disappointed about losing gate money brought the contact to the LHSAA, who then voided it because it was signed by an assistant principal instead of a principal.
Fontenot says the two sides are now at an impasse. He says he hopes cooler heads will prevail and allow what he calls the area's version of the Army-Navy Game to be played.
"The biggest disappointment is not losing money," Fontenot said. "it's about losing the game and the respect it creates." He continued, "It would be a shame that these two football teams would miss out on the opportunity to play the game the way God intended it to be play. That's with sportsmanship, respect, and effort."
