Playoffs. PLAYOFFS! Former Indianapolis Colts head coach Jim Mora’s famous rant can now be turned into a headline for this week’s Sunday Dispatch.
Although the District 2 playoffs weren’t set completely by press time for this week’s edition, we do know that there are several teams competing this upcoming week.
