The year of the unknowns, the pushed back start of the season, the masks, the sweat, the time spent on the field is all worth it now that playoffs are here! The UIL 5A and 6A schools have kicked off the brackets with a bang! Bi-District playoffs began Thursday night and continue this weekend as the teams look to climb their way to the top!
Here are the local results and showdowns in the San Antonio Area:
