From the Class A Public bracket (Towns County and Commerce) to Class AAAAAAA, the area is well represented as high school football moves into its playoff season. With football in its waning weeks, basketball is ramping up and both are discussed in this week's edition of the Prep Talk podcast with AccessWDUN sports editor Morgan Lee and Game On's Katie B. Davis.
