What do you do when your lucky socks have holes in them and you need the win to get into the playoffs? You suck it up and wear them and ride the lucky karma! That's exactly what Ellsworth Football Coach Duane Crawford did and the Ellsworth Eagles Football Team is into the playoffs for the 1st time in school history!

Ellsworth needed a victory to insure they would be in the playoffs, in this their 1st year that they were eligible. They did so, in a convincing manner, beating Washington Academy 48-12 on Senior Recognition Night at Tug White Stadium on Friday October 20th.

The win insures that Ellsworth, now 4-4 will be at least in the playoffs and could possibly be the 5th seed depending upon the outcome of the Mount View-Winthrop game Saturday afternoon October 21st.

Be sure to check back Monday night, October 23rd for the Ellsworth Coach's Show with Duane Crawford as he recaps Friday night's huge playoff insuring victory over Washington Academy.

Now we just have to know if he decides to wash the socks and avoid washing the luck out of them!
