LHSAA Statement on the Death of Franklin Parish High School's Tyrell Cameron

On behalf of the Louisiana High School Athletic Association (LHSAA) our deepest sympathies go out to the friends and family of Tyrell Cameron, Franklin Parish High School and the surrounding community in the wake of the recent tragedy.

“As a former coach and administrator I have had the unfortunate experience that both Coach Sebren and Principal Gunter are currently enduring. However, as a father of three children, my heart breaks for Tyrell’s family. I cannot imagine their pain,” said Eddie Bonine, LHSAA Executive Director.

The LHSAA holds the safety of its student-athletes at the highest priority. The LHSAA’s Sports Medicine Advisory Committee is comprised of doctors and certified athletic trainers from across the state and meets twice a year to discuss tactics in minimizing the inherent risks that all sports entail.
