Folks, Evan Korn here from Stony Brook's La Valle Stadium for the Class III Long Island Championship Game between Sayville (11-0) and Lawrence (10-1). This game pits two of the Island's high-flying offenses, with Sayville QB Steven Ferreira and Lawrence's Fredericks' brothers (Ryan, Tyler, Jordan) expected to put up big numbers.

Conference III:

No. 1 Lynbrook (9-1) vs. No. 2 Lawrence (8-2), 7 p.m. at Hofstra — If the regular-season meeting between these two teams is any indication, tonight's game will go down to the wire. Marcos Pinto's 35-yard field goal gave the Golden Tornadoes a 23-14 lead en route to a 23-22 Week 7 win.

So just one measly point separates the Owls from perfection,...

"Oh, oh I want some more, oh, oh, what are you waiting for?" — "Animal" by Neon Trees.

At this time of year, every team has an animalistic instinct to hunt down its opponents and destroy them.

It's no fluke to advance to a county final. You've got to be good. And you've got to know how to win once you get here.

Farmingdale, a perennial power, showed...

If last night was any indication, fans are in for some fantastic football at Hofstra this weekend. In the Conference I semifinals, top-seeded Freeport beat a pesky Syosset team 39-25, and then No. 3 Farmingdale cruised past No. 2 Oceanside, 42-20 (more on this game right here on the blog a little later).

So with the Conference I final set, let's turn our attention to Conference III, which...

"You know we're superstars. We are who we are." — "We R Who We R" by Ke$ha.

Not going to lie, we here at the High School Football blog have a bit of a crush on Ke$ha. Actually, that's not completely true. I don't think Mr. Herzog knows who she is.

But me, yeah, I'm a fan. Or maybe it's just that I like to type the dollar sign where the "s" should be.

"And you never say 'hey' or remember my name, and it's probably 'cause you think you're cooler than me." — "Cooler Than Me" by Mike Posner.

We don't like to admit it, but we're extremely vain here at the High School Football blog. We think we're cooler than everyone.

But come playoff time, the popularity contests go out the window. It comes down to which...

"I'm not afraid, to take a stand. Everybody, come take my hand." — "Not Afraid" by Eminem.

With just one week left in the regular season, teams must put away their fears.

Some need a win in Week 8 to make the postseason, others are fighting for a home game in Round 1, while a select few are battling for the regular-season crown and the top seed.

Hard to believe the penultimate week of the regular season is upon us. It seems like just yesterday we were at Syosset on Labor Day for the opening game of the season.

But enough nostalgia, we've still got important games to play, including tonight's game of the year in Conference IV — the last matchup of undefeated teams on Long Island this season.

Roosevelt and Seaford are two...

"You make me feel like I'm living a teenage dream," — "Teenage Dream" by Katy Perry.

Yup, we're going there this week, high school football bloggers.

Katy Perry may not be welcome alongside Elmo on Sesame Street, but the pop princess will always be a staple of the High School football playlist.  

And let's be honest, isn't it every teenage...
