Playoff positioning and a stake in a possible region championship will be at stake this Friday when the Apalachee High School football team ventures into Death Valley to face Clarke Central, the current No. 2 team in Class AAAA.
For the Wildcats, a win is likely necessary if they want to be able to host a state playoff game again this season. AHS already has one loss while Clarke Central is undefeated. A setback this Friday would make it difficult for the Wildcats to finish higher than third. A win, however, and the possibility remains for winning region depending on the matchup in the final regular season game between Clarke Central and Flowery Branch.
