High school football gets serious in Week 11 of the 2015 season
As in Sweet 16.
The second round of the Class 6A state playoffs the round of 16 is set for tonight at sites across Oregon, and Community Newspapers will be out in force to cover it.
Indeed, we'll be out to see contests between the No. 1 (Jesuit), No. 2 Sherwood) and No. 3 (West Linn) teams in the state, among many others.
And not just at the Class 6A level. There are huge games ahead in Class 5A, too, including an epic quarterfinal rematch between Northwest Oregon Conference rivals Wilsonville (top-ranked and unbeaten at 10-0) and NWOC runner-up Wilsonville (seventh-ranked and once-beaten by Liberty now at 9-1); that game is set for a 7 p.m. kickoff at Liberty High School.
Through it all, Community Newspapers' sports editors, reporters and photographers will be out in force, covering a bundle of games tonight and tomorrow, including contests at the Class 6A, 5A, 4A and 2A levels.
At the same time, Community Newspapers will continue its work as a state leader in high school football coverage, now presenting its work even more quickly and sharing it more broadly. We, as a company, are now posting our high school football stories and photos to all our websites as soon as possible following each Friday night's contests.
And once they're posted, by clicking on the Prep Football tab that's now been added to each of our websites, visitors will be able to see all the stories and photos posted by our sports editors, sports reporters and photographers, not just those particular to their home schools.
To see the new Prep Football tab, just hover over the Sports tab at the top of the page.
