The LHSAA voted yesterday to allow Louisiana high school athletes to benefit from name, image and likeness, much like college athletes have since it was allowed last summer.

In other words, there are about to be a handful of very rich 17 year olds.

The LHSAA will partner statewide with Eccker Sports to help athletes navigate contracts.

“As an education-based association, I think it is imperative that everyone associated with high school athletics in Louisiana is properly educated and informed on Name, Image, and Likeness,” said Eddie Bonine, Executive Director of the Louisiana High School Athletic Association, said in a statement, according to WAFB. “There is a lot to NIL and it’s a moving target that we need to stay on top of. I am honored that Eccker Sports, with all their experience and everything they have to offer, has chosen to launch with us. The educational programming and toolbox they provide is going to be very valuable to all the individuals who participate in this and will benefit our students throughout the state.”
