Louisiana, you spoke, and we heard you.
Due to the overwhelming response of high school football fans across the state, VSN Louisiana has decided to redo and expand our bracket for the greatest high school quarterbacks from 32 players to 36.
We are releasing this new bracket today, and voting will begin at noon in the same manner we have been using across three social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
When we originally released the bracket Sunday, we heard from hundreds of fans wanting to add players to our list. While we cannot add all the nominees, we figured the least we could do is add four.
How we have constructed this new bracket is by adding a ninth seed to each quadrant, and the winner of each quad will meet up with a top seed in the Elite Eight. Those winners will advance to the Final Four and so on.
Our panel at VSN Louisiana, made up of founder Eric Richey, Lonn Ellzey, George Becnel and Jim Derry, has been overwhelmed by the response from our Running Back Bracket Challenge and then this week with the quarterbacks. We cannot say “thank you” enough, and are thrilled about the amount of fans who have participated and for their opinions and votes.
Keep it coming!
