Before football teams hit the field Friday night, there are 16 squads left in seven classes across the state who all have a shot at the state tournament. By the end of the night, that number will get cut in half. This is the week that pretty much every kid who grows up playing football dreams about.
It’s one of the most fun times of the year to be a high school sports fan. Tonight is section championship Friday in girls hockey, where some teams will realize their season goal of getting to the state tournament.
