It has been 15 years since the football team has made it to playoffs.
The boys have only lost one game to Attica/Argonia, but they are still undefeated in District and in League. The top two teams from the eight districts advance to the playoffs. Skyline won their game against Kinsley Friday, clenching first place in the district, which means they get a home playoff game on Tuesday.
“I am very excited to be in the playoffs,” senior Levi Johnston said. “It has been 15 years since, so it will be exciting. I think that we have a lot of talent and quite a few athletes and we are a good strong team.”
Playoffs are single game elimination. The teams that win the second round qualify for Sub-State.
“I just want to see how deep we can get into the playoffs and do our best,” sophomore Andrew Withers said.
To prepare for the playoffs they all work hard in practice and watch film to see how they can improve. The boys are proud of their win against South Central.
“We are doing really good and work well together,” junior Brady McComb said. The boys play tonight at St. John at 7 p.m.
