<br>The Lutheran Crusaders were one of several local teams to learn their first round playoff pairing Saturday evening.
Rockford, Illinois-For the first time in ten years the Lutheran Crusaders are playoff bound in football. That reality set in Saturday evening when the team and fans gathered at the school gymnasium to watching the IHSA Playoff Pairings Show.

Even though the Crusaders were a lock to make the playoffs with their 8-1 record they still erupted in cheers when their name was announced.  The Crusaders will play in Class 2A.  They'l'l open next weekend with a home game against 7-2 Taylor Ridge (Rockridge).  For more on the Crusaders click on the media player.
