We are reaching late October and, aside from the WEAC Convention, nothing says autumn like the Wisconsin state high school football playoffs. Following are my divisional selections for state champions:

Division 1: Kenosha Bradford. The state’s second largest high school is loaded with college Division 1 talent, including running back Melvin Gordon.
Division 2: Franklin. Division 2 is loaded, but Franklin somehow beat Kenosha Bradford two weeks ago. Two state champs for the Southeast Conference.
Division 3: Catholic Memorial. CM has battled through a bruising conference schedule filled with solid Division 1 teams.
Division 4: Maple Northwestern. Score one for Northern Wisconsin…defeating Walworth Big Foot in the final.
Division 5: Darlington. The traditional power is back and will benefit from playing solid competition during the regular season.
Division 6: Edgar. Until a team figures out how to beat this bunch, they are the prohibitive favorite.
Division 7: Burlington Catholic Central. Their early loss to Division 2 Wilmot was not unexpected. Solid football team that would do well in Division 5 or 6.
