A new Louisiana high school sports organization could very soon be a reality. The Louisiana High School Sports Cooperative is actively seeking new members, according to an email that sent Wednesday.

Paul Rainwater, former chief of staff to former Governor Bobby Jindal's staff, has volunteered to be the executive director. Rainwater has already made arrangements to have state championship games in football, baseball, basketball, volleyball, softball and track at LSU. The new organization needs 60 members to get started for the 2016-2017 academic school year and any school private or public can join. The initial membership fee is $15,000 per school. 

Several schools contacted by FOX 8 Sports are meeting this week to decide if they would like to enter the new association. The new league development comes after principals within the LHSAA voted to further split select and non-select schools state champions in all sports, not just football.
