We've reached the beginning of the Section II football playoffs, and the following teams are looking to repeat as their class champions:

Shenendehowa (Class AA) -- The Plainsmen (6-1) won the Empire Division, but they also suffered a 35-8 loss to Liberty Division champion Shaker this season. Is that a sign of things to come for Shen?

Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake (Class A) -- After an opening week loss to eventual Southeast Division champion Troy, the Spartans (6-1) have been unstoppable in winning the Northwest Division crown. Can BH-BL keep it up and win its fifth straight Sectional title?

Schalmont (Class B) -- The Sabres (6-1) ran through the competition in the West Division to take first place and a No. 1 seed. But with Lansingburgh (7-0), Ravena (6-1) and Albany Academy (5-2) all sporting impressive records, can Schalmont repeat?

Hoosick Falls (Class C) -- The Indians (7-0) continued to impress in 2012 with lopsided win after lopsided win. Can a team like Chatham (7-0) end Hoosick Falls' title bid?

You can chime in by voting for the team you believe has the best chance to repeat as Section II champions. Voting remains open until midnight Monday.
