For the first time in three seasons — which must seem like an eternity to a perennially successful program — Statesboro is back in the second round of the state football playoffs. The Blue Devils (10-1) didn’t draw the easiest of roads for their postseason adventure. Statesboro had to travel all the way over to Cairo last Friday night, but paraded back to town with the school’s first postseason victory since a win over Kell in the quarterfinals of the 2010 playoffs.
