Week 5: District Games Taking Center Stage

It’s hard to believe that we are already five weeks into the 2023 high school football season.

It seems that every year the off-season gets longer and the actual season is somewhat shorter.

When we turn the page this week, we will be at the halfway point of the regular season. With state playoffs on the horizon, the district games will certainly be in the spotlight as teams fight for position.
