SIDELINE OBSERVATIONS: Plenty to play for in Week 10

Published: Tuesday, October 30, 2012 at 05:03 PM.

Welcome to week 10 of the high school football season, the next to last week of the regular season and the final week of district play.

Upcoming games have playoff implications, as both Baker and Crestview hope to earn a trip to the playoffs that start two weeks from Friday.

Baker could still end up wining District 1-1A, but the best Crestview can hope for now is to finish second in District 2-6A and get the second playoff spot from the district.

Things in District 2-6A seem less complicated than the race in District 1-1A right now.

With a 4-0 district record heading into Friday’s game with winless Mosley, Navarre has already clinched first place in the six-team district. Mosley is 0-4 and has been eliminated from the playoff picture. That means the battle for second place and the remaining spot in the playoffs comes down to a battle between Okaloosa County teams Crestview, Choctawhatchee, Fort Walton Beach and Niceville.

All four teams have 2-2 district records, with the Bulldogs hosting the Eagles on Friday and the Vikings and Indians playing in their annual rivalry game.
