    The rule states a player can return if cleared by appropriate medical personnel, the LHSAA concussion packets says “Athletes shall not return to play in a game on the same day that they are suspected of having a concussion.”

    Which takes precedent, NFHS or the LHSAA?

    They both have equal status. The rule is saying that the athlete is NOT suspected of a concussion, and has been cleared by appropriate medical personnel. The LHSAA guideline says that if an athlete is suspected of a concussion, they can’t return to play on the same day. If the athlete is cleared, even if suspected, by the list of approved personnel, they can return.

    Different versions of the same statement.

    Thanks, I got that last night after watching the online rules clinic. The wording threw me off
