Doing the right thing

Kudos to the Louisiana High School Athletic Association executive committee for their ruling on Huntington's appeal.

They rightly ruled that penalties prohibiting competition for district and state honors would affect the students -- who weren't the problem in the violations Huntington committed.

The school was also helped by a proactive stance in removing Mike Green as head coach.

While no one wants to see someone lose a job -- and Green is still a teacher at Huntington -- the decision by principal Jerry Davis to move on without Green at the helm of Huntington football was not only a wise one, but one that helped keep his team playing meaningful games this season.
