Prep Spotlight, week 5: Playoffs already on the mind
Much to former Indianapolis Colts head coach Jim Mora, we're already ready to talk about playoffs, even though we're only entering Week 5 of the high school football season.
What are the key components of a postseason-caliber football team? What are some of the teams in our area that have already exhibited those characteristics.
Janesville Craig could clinch a playoff berth Friday night, and Milton could get to 3-0 in the Badger South and becoming playoff-eligible.
Gazette Sports Editor Eric Schmoldt and reporter John Barry break down all that and more heading into Week 5.
