The 2020 high school football season has been unlike anything that any of us have ever experienced — from players to coaches, administrations to journalists, cheerleaders to bands and for fans in the stands.
Even so, this week brings the start of the playoffs for Classes 4A and below, and 29 teams from the Big Country Preps coverage area made the postseason — a number that doesn’t include Coleman, which shut down its program prior to the final regular season game due to an outbreak.
Across the board, Big Country teams finished a combined 30 games over .500 while playing remarkably tough schedules. Teams averaged a combined 28.4 points per game while giving up 24.2 per contest. When looking only at teams that made the playoffs, the offensive numbers went to 31.7 points per game.
