The Playoff Picture

By: Jason Bishop news services

Well, here we go. The last week of the high school football regular season is upon us.

The playoffs will start in two weeks and as always southeast Georgia will be well represented. But who will be playing where?

Brunswick High Pirates: The Pirates will travel to Springfield Friday night to take on the Effingham Rebels in what amounts to a region championship game.

BHS is the last unbeaten team in 6A and comes in at 9-0 on the season and undefeated in the region. Effingham’s only region loss is to Richmond Hill.

If the Pirates knock off the Rebels, BHS will lock up a #1 seed and will most likely be hosting Tucker. However, if Effingham upsets the Pirates, then Effingham would be region champion and BHS would likely host Lovejoy as a #2 seed.

Ware County Gators: The Gators are 7-1 on the season and undefeated in their region. Ware holds wins over Coffee, Veterans and Warner Robins; thus, they have locked up the region no matter the outcome of the Wayne County game Friday night.

The Gators will most likely host Banneker out of region 3-5A in the first round.

MCA Buccaneers: MCA is 4-4-1 on the year and currently holds the #3 seed in 3-1A Public.

The Bucs will head up to Millen Friday night with the #3 seed on the line against Jenkins County. The winner of that game will get the #3 seed and the loser will end up with #4 seed.

A #3 seed means a road trip to Mitchell County, a very winnable game. However, a #4 seed means a date with the Pelham Hornets, a much tougher game.

Glynn Academy Red Terrors: The Red Terrors are 3-5-1 on the season and are in danger of missing the playoffs for the first time in the Rocky Hidalgo era.

Glynn’s only chance to get into the playoffs is to beat Statesboro Friday night at Glynn County Stadium.

If the Red Terrors succeed at knocking off the Blue Devils, they will earn a #4 seed and they would face Langston Hughes, the #1 seed from region 4.

Langston Hughes knocked Glynn out of the playoffs last year in the second round, 35-0.

Camden County Wildcats: The Wildcats have struggled closing games in the second half of the season. Camden has locked up the #4 seed in their region with a 4-6 record.

The Wildcats lost the last 5 games of the season. In fairness, Camden could have very easily won 4 of those games.

The Wildcats will head up to Atlanta to play the #1 seed in region 3, North Cobb.

Camden is a very dangerous #4 seed.

Charlton County Indians: The Indians nipped Lanier County last week by one point, earning the #4 seed from region 2-1A Public.

Charlton will take on Atkinson County Friday Night to close out their regular season, looking for a 7-3 regular season.

After that the Indians will take to the road in the first round of the playoffs to take Montgomery County, the #1 seed from 4-1A Public.

Frederica Academy Knights: The Knights currently are 4-5 on the season and hold the #2 position in GISA 2-3A. Frederica will head up to Dublin Friday night to take on Trinity Christian.

If the Knights win over Trinity, they will finish #2 in the region, however GISA uses a different ranking system than GHSA.

The most likely scenario is the Knights end up with #5 seed and a first round bye in the playoffs.

With so much uncertainty surrounding the Brunswick High Pirate football program this week coming off two straight region losses to inferior teams the Pirates kept their playoff hopes alive with a 24-10 win over a favored Richmond Hill.

It was senior night at the stadium and Coach Larry Harold had his team chomping at the bit to play and the Pirates played inspired football.
