The high school football playoffs have reached the quarterfinal round with six local teams set to compete this Friday. Five of those teams are state ranked in the latest week 10 KPreps rankings. 

One of the highest local teams ranked is Perry Lecompton who is #2 in Class 3A after avenging their only loss of the season with a 20-7 win at Topeka Hayden last week.  The Kaws are now 9-1 on the season and looking to get back to the 3A State Championship game as they host Prairie View (8-1) this week on KNZA 103.9 FM.  

The Holton Wildcats are also still alive in the Class 3A bracket with a record of 8-1 and they play at Frontenac (6-4) this Friday, currently just outside the state's top five rankings.

Also ranked #2 in the state in Class 1A is the defending state champion, Centralia Panthers. Winners of eight straight since a season opening loss to #1 ranked Rossville, Centralia is 8-1 this year and has another rematch this week as they host Lyndon (8-2) on Friday night. The Panthers beat Lyndon in week seven by a 48-17 score. 

In Class 2A, the defending state champions from Nemaha Central moved up three spots to #2 this week after beating another ranked team in Silver Lake. The Thunder are 7-2 this year and winners of six straight following their 40-30 win against the Eagles. Nemaha Central plays at Osage City (9-1) this Friday with live coverage on KMZA 92.1 FM.

Finally in 8-Man, the Hanover Wildcats are ranked #2 in Divison Two following their second victory this season against TVL foe, Axtell. Hanover is 8-0 this year and host unbeaten Colony Crest this Friday night. Frankfort is ranked #5 in 8-Man D2 and improved to 6-1 on the season with their second playoff win at Beloit St. John's this past week. The Wildcats host undefeated Lebo this Friday with the winners advancing to the Sub-State semifinals next week.
