The East St. Louis Flyers are advanced to the third round of the Illinois State playoffs with a 34-26 victory Saturday over Geneva.
Now East St. Louis will face off against Wheaton-Warrenville South, and it's a game that stud strongside defensive end Brandon Harold is already looking forward to.
"As long as we keep winning, we're good," Harold, who is 6-foot-5 and 260 pounds, said.

"We've been playing really well, and I'm pleased with everything. We've just got to keep rolling on."
Speaking of rolling, that's exactly what Harold has been doing this season.
"I've got 73 tackles, five sacks, a fumble recovery and an interception," Harold said. "I've been pleased with everything I've done, but I want to win a state championship."
Harold is a wanted man on the recruiting front, too.
"My top teams are Illinois and Kansas State right now," he said.
"They're about even. I hear all the time from Kansas State, Michigan and Illinois. Ohio State and LSU are also calling, too. I'm supposed to try and take a visit to Illinois sometime soon. I plan on visiting Kansas State, Ohio State, LSU and I'm still thinking about the fifth one."
Harold said he isn't in a rush to make a final decision.
"I'll be making my decision in February," he said. "Hopefully I'll know where I want to go after I take my visits."
