High School Football Team Allegedly Cheated By Reading Opponents' Playbook Online

The new cheating in high school football: via the internet. Allegedly, of course. This story is just emerging out of Louisiana:

The scandal revolves around Hudl, a website that can house game film, practice film, schemes and play books for football teams.

It appears, through a South LaFourche player, Destrehan’s staff got hold of South LaFourche’s username and password and spent roughly 12 hours on the site.

Destrehan (5-0 in District 7-5A) more than doubled up its league opponent South LaFourche (4-4, 3-2), 49-24, on Friday.

Many questions remain, obviously. How did the Destrehan staff obtain the username and password? Why would an undefeated team spend 12 hours sifting through the playbook and watching film of a .500 team? Is that easier than just scouting the opponent?

And why on earth would any team upload its playbook, schemes or film to a website?

As they say, developing. [via Shreveport Times, via The Hazean]
