IHSA football playoff bracket announced, times

36 teams from WCIA 3 viewing area set to kick-off postseason

TUSCOLA (WCIA) -- The Tuscola Warriors are once again a top seed in Class 1A.

The IHSA football playoff pairings were released earlier this evening. It's the ___ year in a row that the warriors nab a top spot. They'll get 16-seed Chester in round one. 


"You know this is an exciting time regardless of who you're playing or whatever your road looks like ahead," head coach Andy Romine said. "You've just got to worry about the first one and hope you can keep it going as long as you can."

"Everybody on the team is just ready to go," senior receiver Dalton Hoel said. "I mean we go nine games in the regular season going all out and then you get to the playoffs and it's just a completely different atmosphere knowing you lose and you're done."
