The Gunn football team received the No. 6 seed in the Central Coast Section Division II playoffs and will open postseason play at Leland (7-3) on Saturday at 7 p.m. This is only the third time in school history that Gunn has reached the playoffs. The last time was in 2002 when they defeated Aragon, 28-21, before falling to St. Francis, 33-14. The Titans (7-3) won a coin toss with Sobrato for the sixth seed.

"This is great for the guys." said Gunn coach Bob Sykes. "They're excited about being in the playoffs."

The only common opponent for the two teams is Leigh. Gunn lost to Leigh, 20-10, and Leland beat Leigh, 30-15.

"I know the coach at Leland," said Sykes. "They're well-coached and I know I will need to get our guys ready for a battle."

The Gunn-Leland winner will advance to the semifinals on either Nov. 27 or 28 and face the winner of No. 7 Sobrato (8-2) or No. 2 Wilcox (6-3-1). The top-seeded team in the bracket is Los Gatos (7-3). The division title will be played on either Dec. 4 or 5.
