There was an old Schoolhouse Rock song – “Three is a Magic Number,” and whether it’s actually true or not depends on who you ask. To the three Mr. Football finalists in each category, it is. To the teams who are three wins away from state championships, it is.
For those hoping to stay dry Friday and avoid a third week of nasty weather this season, well, it’s not.
Anyway, with three weeks left until all the titles are decided in Cookeville, the Mr. Football finalists were announced on Tuesday. And although the winners have already been decided, it’s still a chance to honor those who will be in Nashville the Monday before the championship games potentially receiving those accolades.
On this week’s edition of the 615Preps Podcast, we discuss some of the surprises of the second round, including DeKalb County’s unlikely run to the quarterfinals. Tiger radio analyst Luke Willoughby joins the show to talk about what’s behind their historic run, and we choose our Player of the Week as well as make picks for the Division I quarterfinals and Division II semifinals.
