A St. Charles Parish judge has issued a temporary restraining order that paves the way for Hahnville quarterback Andrew Robison to play against rival Destrehan Friday night. The LHSAA has said Robison is ineligible to play at Hahnville, after he transferred from Vandebilt Catholic in Houma. Attorney David Moyer says Robison never received due process from the LHSAA.

“The appeal was not a hearing on the merits, Andrew was only granted 20 minutes to present a case.”

Hahnville has yet to say if Robison will play tonight.  
 
Head coach Nick Saltaformaggio is also serving a four-game suspension after the LHSAA determined the quarterback was illegally recruited to Hahnville. A 27-page report turned in by Vandebilt Catholic provided the evidence the LHSAA needed to hand down the punishment, which included $2,500 fine Hahnville has to pay. 
Moyer says the LHSAA has not given a thorough explanation on why Robison can't play at Hahnville. 

“The investigation and the report prepared by the LHSAA was incomplete and they did not put things in the report that were told to them.”

Robison says one of the primary reasons for his client wanting to transfer was his treatment by officials at Vandebilt Catholic, a point he says the LHSAA refuses to acknowledge.

“Andrew was bullied by the coach at Vandebilt catholic. That information was told to investigators but was not put in the report.”

A full court hearing on the issue is set for Wednesday.
