There was no sliding and there was no climbing for teams across Pennsylvania as the district playoffs began for some last week.

The Trib HSSN weekly state football rankings remained status quo with 13 teams enjoying byes last week.

Time to say bye-bye to the free passes as all 30 ranked teams hit the field this weekend as the district postseason continues.

Change will be in the air in at least two instances as ranked teams square off this week.

In Class 6A, two District 12 heavyweights collide in the semifinals as No. 2 and defending PIAA champion St. Joseph’s Prep faces No. 4 LaSalle College.

In Class A, District 4 gold is up for grabs as top-ranked Canton takes on No. 4 Muncy in the district finals.

At this point, on the brink of the PIAA first round next week, there is no tomorrow. Win and advance toward Hershey, lose and put the pads away for good.
