The Louisiana High School Athletic Association voted to approve a split into separate football playoffs for select and non-select schools to conclude its annual convention held Friday at the Crowne Plaza.

The vote to approve the first competition-related split for reasons other than school enrollment figures in the 92-year-old association's history came by a 206-119 margin.
