HS Football: Delta enters playoffs as 13th seed for second straight season

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. The Delta Panthers will be looking for respect this Saturday when they face (5) Holy Family.

The Panthers had a long playoff drought in the early 2000's. It wasn't until the last five years that they started to turn things around. Now they're entering back-to-back playoff runs, and just like last season, they're seeded in the 13th slot.

The Panthers will look to have a deja vu experience and come away with an upset to move on, and at this point, they know it's anyone's game.

"I think there's a number of teams, a pretty large number of teams that could win it," said head coach Ben Johnson. "Whoever gets hot at the right time and plays great defense and good offense I think could go a long ways."

(13) Delta plays (5) Holy Family on the road this Saturday at 1:00 PM.
