It’s state semifinal week in high school football, which means it’s going to be a busy weekend over at the Metrodome.
There are 48 high school football teams still playing in Minnesota after section champions were decided last Friday and Saturday around the state. But the celebration is over and the preparation is back underway as those teams will do battle Friday and Saturday in the state quarterfinals.
When championships are on the line, that’s when leaders step up and carry their teams forward. That was never more evident than Friday night as some of the state’s top players emerged to lead their teams to victories in section championship games around the state.
It’s definitely starting to feel more like fall around Minnesota, and it’s definitely feeling more like football weather as teams hit their fields on game day.
