The Taylorville Tornadoes host Troy Triad in the first round of the Illinois High School football playoffs this weekend. The pairings announcement was made Saturday night by the I-H-S-A and heard on WTIM and WSVZ.
Taylorville head football coach Jeb Odam told Regional Radio during our annual Pigskin Playoff Preview Show, that he was a bit surprised that the Tornadoes ended up in class 5-A for playoff matchups.
And, Coach Odam said getting a first round playoff game at home is huge for his team and the town.
Due to Illini football, Saturday's Taylorville game will be heard on WRAN groovy 97.3. The game will also be streamed live at taylorvilledailynews-dot-com.
