If They Made It… Potential Football Match-Ups

For those of us who follow and are fans of high school football in Kansas it seems we are always catching ourselves saying around this time “is it really week 9 already?”

Yes it is and in the South East Kansas region the playoff picture isn’t any clearer going into week 9 as it was from week 1. In fact, looking at the 11 districts that have area teams, 9 of 33 teams have clinched a playoff spot while the other 22 are still in contention for the playoffs.

With that in mind, here’s how the playoffs could potentially look for area teams:
