256 Teams, 8 Champions, 8 Champions, 5 Weeks: IHSA Playoffs Begin: Route 66


A fun time of the year begins this Friday, the Illinois High School Association begins its five week countdown to a grand champion in 8 classes.

Every year, I have my own playoffs between Lincoln Highway and Route 66.  I have been doing it since 2012 when Lincoln Highway won.  Overall since then Lincoln Highway leads 4-2.  Final winner is last team standing.
