Daniel ran away from third-seeded Eastside last Thursday (49-20), ending the Eagles’ 2018 playoff campaign in round one.

Junior quarterback Tyler Venables and a strong showing by the Daniel defense gave the Lions their first playoff win since 2013.

Eastside will open the postseason at Daniel this Friday.

Eagles looking to upset Lions

Eastside is hoping to channel its 2017 success this Friday, as the Eagles get set to visit Daniel in the first round of the Class AAAA state playoffs.

The Eagles, who made a trip to the state quarterfinals last year, are coming off a 7-3 year after picking up recent losses to Greer and Greenville.

Rebels take on Westside

When Reggie Shaw’s team lost in the first round of the Class AAAAA playoffs last year, the head coach began preaching a simple message: finish strong.

It was the team’s motto throughout the preseason, and it continues to be their motto as the 2018 postseason gets underway on Friday.
