This was the final weekend in the regular season for High School football. What a weekend it was with New Lexington clinching not only a M-V-L title but it's first state playoff birth since 1990 with an overtime win verse Sheridan. Crooksville also played for a chance to reach the post season after going 0-10 last year.
Well, the points were tallied on Sunday and the seeds were set so here's a look at the local teams taht made the cut.
