Class 5AA and 7AA Playoff Picture

These two Regions are interesting because they match up in the 1st Rd of the playoffs.

Region 5AA

  1. Haralson Co Rebels: By my calculations even if Haralson Co where to lose to Bremen next Friday, setting up a 3 way tie, they would get the nod a #1. The only way I see Haralson not winning the Region is losing to Bremen and Callaway losing to either Temple or Heard. Bremen would win the Region Title in that case. 
  1. Callaway Cavaliers: Home field in the first round of the playoffs is Callaways to win or lose. They are favorites in their final 2 games versus Temple and Heard Co. A loss would allow the Bremen or Heard to slip into the 2 spot. 
  1. Winner of Heard Co at Bremen: Big game this Friday at Bremen. As mentioned above Bremen still has an outside shot at the Region Title with help from Temple or Heard Co. With a win Heard could finish as high as 2nd if they beat Callaway the final week of the season. 
  1. Loser of Heard Co at Bremen: Both have tiebreaking wins over Temple so neither is in danger of missing the playoffs. The loser Friday more than likely is headed to Blue Ridge Week 1. 

Dark Horse: Temple Tigers: It’s not over for the Tigers just yet. Temple plays at Callaway this Thursday night and if they could pull the upset they would become big Heard Co fans next Friday. A Heard Co win over Callaway would send the Tigers to the playoffs and the defending State Champs would be sent home.

Region 7AA

  1. Fannin Co Rebels: If the Rebels win out over Coosa on the road and Dade Co at home the final week, the Rebels would win back to back Region Titles in school history. 
  1. Chattooga Indians: Big one at home Friday when they host the Pepperell Dragons. A win would guarantee the Indians a home field game 1st Rd. If Chattooga loses to Pepperell there is the potential of a 3 way tie for 2 thru 4, depending on Dade vs Fannin outcome. By my calculation the Indians would finish 4th in a 3 way tie. 
  1. Dade County Wolverines: Easy formula, win out and they are Region Champs. Go 1-1 or 0-2 the final 2 weeks they finish 3rd and travel 1st Round if Chattooga beats Pepperell. If Pepperell wins over Chattooga, Dade has the potential to finish

 2nd due to tie break rules. 

  1. Pepperell Dragons: The Dragons can help themselves Friday with a win over Chattooga. The math says if they can beat the Indians on the road they will finish at 3rd. They still have an outside shot at hosting a 1st Rd game if they can go 2-0 these final weeks and Dade Co goes 0-2.

Dark Horse: Coosa Eagles: The Eagles are actually in good spot but they need help. Let’s assume Coosa loses to Fannin Friday. If Pepperell loses to Chattooga it would set up a game in Lindale next week for the 4 spot. If Coosa finds a way to upset the Rebels Friday night then the math gets crazy.
