11 local teams will be on the road in the first round of the playoffs, while 12 area teams are at home in round one including 4A Region 6 champions Cleburne County.
Tomorrow night, the Tigers play host to Westminster Christian, the #4 seed in Region 7. Cleburne County suffered a couple of key losses in their game at Glencoe last Thursday night. Starting quarterback Brady Padgett and center Blake Pointer are expected to be out for at least a week, but head coach Michael Shortt says the team has full confidence in the guys that will fill their spots.
The Tigers are no strangers to playoff football. This season marks the 18th postseason berth for Cleburne County and the 13th for Coach Shortt. Last year, the Tigers made it to the quarterfinals.
