It's state football playoff time across the land. In West Virginia's Class AA, the Bluefield Beavers will be making their sixth appearance in the last eight title games next weekend after posting a 13-7 victory Friday.
Bluefield dropped down to Class AA my final year there, and I covered their quarterfinal loss as my final prep game of 1994. They've won several state titles since then and met Don Surber's Poca Dots many times.
No Dots in the way of this campaign.
