Every year when the IHSA football playoff pairings come out, there is always the talk of a bad matchup or that someone really had it taken to them.

ST. JOHN | It hasn't been a piano. It's been a continent of pianos that has been on the back of Lake Central's football program.
It is No. 2 vs. No. 3 in Class 8A.
ST. JOHN | It's something any high school football player in Indiana would love to do. To run out onto the football field in front of a standing-room-only crowd with a conference title on the line is what dreams are made of.
GARY | Ten minutes before the biggest game on West Side's schedule, Cougars coach Jason Johnson wasn't preparing for Morton's offense. Or defense. Or special teams.
It is hard to believe we are past the midway point of the prep football season and this means report card time. Note: This does not include extra credit or giving the teacher an apple.
