Football season is less than two months away, and The Advocate sports staff wants to remind head coaches to submit a questionnaire as soon as possible. The deadline is July 22, and we’d love to get information from our schools in Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Acadiana and all the surrounding areas.
Our questionnaire can be found on the high schools page at theadvocate.com. You can also submit a questionnaire you’ve filled out for another media source. Please include heights, weights and classifications for projected starters.
Coaches wishing to receive a printed copy of the questionnaire can contact Robin Fambrough at rfambrough@the
