Opening Drive (Oct. 7): Breaking point

With week 7 in the books, many teams around the area have this week off for fall break. It’s a good time for most, to heal from the bruises of the first seven weeks, prepare for the stretch run and game plan for their next opponent.

The vast majority of the remaining schedule is region play, so there’s plenty on the line in each of the season’s final four weeks.

Even this week, with a limited schedule, there’s still some important games on the docket. We’ll discuss some of them this week on the 615Preps Podcast, as well as the Glencliff saga and the suspensions at Ravenwood.
