Ellison chasing a playoff spot in season's final weeks

KILLEEN, Texas The Ellison football team has put itself in a position to make the playoffs this fall, but they need wins down the stretch. Ellison has two games and a bye remaining on the schedule and they may need to win both of those games to get into the playoffs.

Ellison has a big challenge this week when the Eagles host Belton. The Tigers are third in the district right now and almost a lock for a playoff spot. So Ellison will have to play well to upset the Tigers at home on Friday.

Ellison coach Todd Wright says his team is still growing along with the coaching staff and having some success against Temple helped. He's hoping it will translate into a good showing against the Tigers.
