GP Cavemen Host Roseburg on Senior Night with Playoff Implications
The Grants Pass Cavemen conclude their regular season football schedule tonight at Mel Ingram Field by hosting long-time rival Roseburg.

The game, in addition to being Senior Night for the Cavemen, has playoff implications. The statewide OSAA rankings have been on a roller coaster this week as results of out of state contests played by Oregon teams trickle into the OSAA and are plugged into the weighted ranking formula.

The Cavemen were ranked 27th prior to the Sheldon game last Friday. In spite of the loss the Cavemen were ranked 25th on Saturday, and as more results came in the Cavemen were elevated to 23rd, which earns a home playoff game. A check of the rankings this morning showed Grants Pass back to 25th and a road playoff game.

A win tonight against the 35th ranked Indians might move GP up one spot which would be a home game.

Tonight’s contest will be broadcast on KAJO with the pregame airing at 6:30 prior to the seven o’clock kickoff.
