Standard for playoff qualifying would help

This time of the season all the talk is about the playoffs. Who's in, and who's out? In Region 7-AAA, we're pretty close to knowing who is going to the playoffs. North Hall (9-0), Flowery Branch (8-1) and Gainesville (7-3) are all in. White County and Chestatee are battling for the last spot. Most people can agree that it's tough to earn a playoff spot in our region here at home.
