Sideline Pass: Jim Bradford 11/4
By Jim Bradford PrepsKC Senior Writer
Well, here we are. The Kansas playoffs are here. It’s time for the real fun to begin.
There’s some drama afoot in Class 5A and Class 4A (I and II), well, aside from the Bishop Miege train, but the real drama seems to be residing in the Class 6A ranks.
There are plenty of questions heading into the 6A playoffs on the Kansas side — even though there are two undefeated teams on what many are thinking are on a collision course.
Not so fast.
There are at least four teams that have a real shot at representing the eastern side of the state in the Class 6A state title game. And this Friday night we get to see the chase for the title begin, in earnest.
Here’s a look at the week 1 slate in Kansas Class 6A:
Lawrence (5-4) at Shawnee Mission East (9-0)
SM North (2-7) at Olathe North (9-0)
Olathe South (7-2) at SM West (5-4)
SM South (3-6) at Blue Valley (8-1)
There may not be a whole heck of a lot of intrigue in the week 1 matchups, but they sure as heck will be fun to watch.
