The District 3 playoffs begin Friday night in Central Pennsylvania, and the FOX43 High School Football Frenzy will be there.
This week, we’ll be broadcasting the Frenzy LIVE from Lampeter-Strasburg High School, where the Pioneers take on former Lancaster-Lebanon League Section 3 rival Eastern Lebanon County in the Class 4A quarterfinals.
That game gets top billing here, but there are plenty of other intriguing matchups on the way this week. So, in addition to our Frenzy Five, we’re offering previews of EVERY game on the docket this week!
