October 31, 2005

One week to go. It amazes me each year when we get to this point and realize that the regular season is already basically in the rear view mirror. Many players around the region and across the country in Division II will see their football careers come to an end this weekend. It's an emotional time, not only for the players, but the parents, friends, fans and coaches. Good luck to those seniors that will be moving on to a new chapter in life after Saturday's games are over.
The good news for six of the region's teams is that they will get the opportunity to extend their seasons for another week or more after receiving an invitation to the playoffs. Last week I said that I felt 13 teams had at least an outside shot of being selected. I believe 11 of those teams still stand at least a slim chance of getting in. Of course this means that plenty of games around the region will carry a great deal of importance. With so many big games, this last Saturday of the regular season promises to be a memorable one.
