PHU hopes to head to their first playoff this year.

When it comes to the playoffs, it’s just not Palm Harbor’s thing.  Our Palm Harbor football team starts strong every year, but just when you think we will have a record breaking season, the team begins to fall apart. Just when I thought I was going 4 years without my school’s football team making one playoff appearance, there’s still hope! One win can guarantee a playoff appearance for the first time in school history.

This Friday, the team will travel 5 hours to take on the Northport Bobcats. A win over the Bobcats would put Palm Harbor in the playoffs for the first time in school history. Hopefully, Palm Harbor will continue to win, then win the playoffs, thus making my senior year complete. Since I know we are going to win this Friday, I’ll talk about the possibility of playing at home for our first playoff game. A win over East Lake High School would make this almost fictional dream possible.

Although I won’t be driving the 5 short hours to Northport to cheer on the team, I will be at home rooting for The U!
