Elton High School will not play football in 2020, saying it cannot field a varsity squad.

Elton head coach Donald Bruchhaus juggled the decision much of the summer, as his team struggled to field a full roster. Ultimately, the Indians could only roster 20 players, half of who are freshman.

Bruchhaus said it just wasn't in the best interest of the players to play a varsity schedule. He said because of the the Coronavirus, many schools didn't field junior varsity teams either, a path he would have ultimately chosen if an option.

High school football in Louisiana begins playing games Thursday, October 1st.
