501 Playoffs – Week 2

Making the playoffs is one thing – but making it past round one – that’s where the contenders separate themselves.

The 501 still boasts several teams in the running for a championship; there’s still at least one 501 team in each classification. But if last week was any indication (half the 501 teams were eliminated), the road won’t get any easier this week.

For now, dreams are still alive for a number of 501 players, coaches, cheerleaders, band members, parents and fans. 501 LIFE wishes all of them the best of luck this week. Here’s to keeping the dreams alive.

(If you’re headed out to a playoff game this week, take a copy of 501 Football or 501 LIFE, snap a pic from the game and send it to us at [email protected].)
