(WLNS) – This is 6 Sports Team of The Week day and this week’s recipient has received plenty of recognition in the past.
But this year’s young squad is becoming as special as some of the others.
What a powerhouse football program along US-127 and the Ithaca Yellowjackets are at it again this fall.
Ithaca is our selection this week.
The Yellowjackets were back at practice after beating St. Louis last week 41-0.
That’s the fourth shutout of the season for the ‘jackets and earned them at least a share of the TVC West title.
One wrinkle for Ithaca this season is the team isn’t sure which division it will be come postseason time but according to coach Terry Hessbrook, the team is just focused on the next game.
The playoffs and placement will take care of itself. “When you get into this part of the season, we’ve got two very good football teams left on our schedule week 8 and week 9 in Hemlock and Shepard and then it’s playoff season and anything can happen and it’s still up in the air,” says Coach Hessbrook. “People are saying whether we are gonna be Division 5 or Division 6 and ya know a lot of people ask me every day and I say it’s kind of like the weather, you can’t worry about it you just play the games that you’ve got in front of you and don’t worry about it until it happens.”
