Week 9 was a little bizarre with all of the Thursday games, but we will keep track of everything here!

Last updated: October 28, 12:00 pm

We take a look at how we feel the brackets could play out and below is the bracket as we see it here at JoxPreps. This is nothing more than us looking at the numbers so far and projecting where teams could finish. These current placings are a mix of current standings, projections and our opinion. Most teams will be locked in after this week, but some will have to head to non-region tiebreakers next week.

With each team listed in the bracket, we have given a confidence grade. This shows how confident we are that a team will finish in a certain spot. A “HIGH” grade means that we feel they will almost assuredly finish in that spot. A “MEDIUM” grade means that we feel that the team will most likely finish somewhere around where we have them listed, maybe a spot or two off depending on future results. A “LOW” grade means that things are still way up in the air and this is only an opinion from us, but there is a lot that still has to play out.

Here is the JoxPreps bracketology for Class 6A as of right now:

* – Teams marked in black are set in place
* – Teams marked in bold are going to be the home team in the first round
* – Teams marked in red are still up in the air

Please note, this bracket is unofficial until the AHSAA has released their final brackets.

Confidence

LOCKED = Locked into that position no matter what
HIGH = Most likely will finish where they are
MEDIUM = Most likely will finish within a spot or two of where our projections have them
LOW = May be in good position now, but things could drastically change with just one or two results


Region 1

1. Saraland (7-0)LOCKED
2. St. Paul’s (5-2)LOW
3. Blount (5-2)LOW
4. Spanish Fort (5-2)LOW

Others that could grab a spot: Daphne (5-2)

Saraland’s win over Blount puts them in first place for good, but Spanish Fort can use a win over them to win what could be a three-way tiebreaker. This is a region that will have to play out but Blount and Daphne will take care of each other in what is essentially a playoff game of it’s own.

Here are the remaining games for the playoff teams:

Saraland (7-0) at Spanish Fort (5-2)
St. Paul’s (5-2) at Robertsdale (1-6)
Blount (5-2) at Daphne (5-2)

Here are the scenarios (Saraland is already #1):

Saraland/St. Paul’s/Blount win – 2) St. Paul’s, 3) Blount, 4) Spanish Fort

Saraland/St. Paul’s/Daphne win – 2) Daphne, 3) St. Paul’s, 4) Blount

Saraland/Robertsdale/Blount win – 2) Blount, 3) St. Paul’s*, 4) Spanish Fort

Saraland/Robertsdale/Daphne win – 2) Daphne, 3) St. Paul’s, 4) Blount

Spanish Fort/St. Paul’s/Blount win – 2) St. Paul’s, 3) Blount, 4) Spanish Fort

Spanish Fort/St. Paul’s/Daphne win – 2) Spanish Fort (for beating the #1), 3) Daphne, 4) St. Paul’s

Spanish Fort/Robertsdale/Blount win – 2) Blount, 3) Spanish Fort, 4) Daphne

Spanish Fort/Robertsdale/Daphne win – 2) Spanish Fort, 3) Daphne, 4) St. Paul’s

* – Tiebreaker N: “The team whose defeated opponents have the most victories” – This is important because Spanish Fort didn’t play the same number of games as St. Paul’s or Daphne. It’s also important because Daphne beat Spanish Fort and St. Paul’s on the field but they had to forfeit the Spanish Fort game making it where technically they all beat each other. If Tiebreaker N comes into play, here would be the totals in that scenario above:

St. Paul’s – 22, potentially 24
Spanish Fort – 13, potentially 14
Daphne – 13, potentially 14

Blount shouldn’t be involved in any three-way tie, so St. Paul’s will win a three-way tie with the other teams guaranteed.
