The road to Lincoln for high school football teams in D-1 and D-2 starts on Thursday.
Of the 64 teams that qualified for the postseason in Class D only three are from western Nebraska.
The Hemingford Bobcats are the lone representative in D-1 and they’ll have their postseason opener tomorrow at 2 p.m. at home against Arapahoe.
The Bobcats started this season 0-3 against some outstanding competition but when all was said and done it was another district title and a five game winning streak to close the regular season for Jordan Haas and Hemingford.
Hemingford got the #4 seed on their half of the bracket while Arapahoe garnered the #13 seed.
With a win Hemingford would play the winner of the #5 Arcadia-Loup City/#12 Elm Creek game next Wednesday in round two.
