LADONIA -- District play will start later this month or early next for most Fannin County football teams.

That's not true for Class 1A-II Fannindel.

Playing in a smaller district -- four total teams, including the Falcons -- Fannindel will again have to wait until almost Halloween to directly vie for another postseason trip.

District 10-1A-II play will start for the Falcons on Oct. 23 when Forestburg visits.

Until then, Fannindel will have ample time to prepare.

If the first three weeks equate a foreshadowing of what is to come, another postseason trip looks likely.

A 33-12 non-district win over Leverett's Chapel on Sept 11 gave the Falcons a 3-0 overall record -- as many wins as Fannindel garnered in 2019 en route to a 3-6 bi-district finalist effort.

It followed a 45-0 victory on Aug. 28 at Fruitvale -- called final at halftime, per six-man rules -- and a 52-6 home win on Sept 3 over Campbell.
