My home county, Licking County is well represented this year with three teams: Div I Newark is making its first playoff appearance since 1975; Div III Hanover Licking Valley is making its third or fourth playoffs since the turn of the century and in Div VI, Newark Catholic is making its 28th playoff appearance overall. I'll root for all 3 of 'em!
A couple of other Licking County teams finished 9th in their region or it would have been a banner year for playoff football there.
gc, it seems like here in Texas, they're playing HS football until Christmas. I can't get used to that.
