KENS5.com producer Cameron Songer and sports reporter Vinnie Vinzetta discuss all the high school football action from the first weekend of November in the San Antonio area. With Week 10 in the books, there’s just one more regular-season game on the calendar. For some teams, a playoff berth is secure, and they’re playing for a district championship and a better seed in the playoffs. For others, it’s win or go home – the only way to extend the season into the playoffs is with a win in the last game. There are also a bunch of possibilities with two- and three-team ties that could come up after the dust settles. We break it all down on the last episode of the regular season of Friday Night Football Replay.
