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

Last updated: October 28, 11:24 am

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 7A 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.


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. McGill-Toolen (7-0)LOCKED
2. Theodore (7-1)LOCKED
3. Murphy (4-3)MEDIUM
4. Fairhope (5-2)MEDIUM

Others that could grab a spot: Baker (3-4)

McGill-Toolen and Theodore are locked in.

Fairhope plays McGill-Toolen this week and a win locks them in third, while a loss could cause them to drop. Murphy defeated Fairhope head-to-head so a win for them over Alma Bryant (1-6) could move them up to third with a Fairhope loss.

Baker is also in line for a potential playoff spot despite being 3-4 right now. They defeated Murphy head-to-head and if they get a win over Mary-Montgomery (1-6) this week, they will have a chance to tie Murphy at 4-4. If Baker loses at all, they are out.

Fairhope/Murphy/Baker wins – 3) Fairhope, 4) Murphy

Murphy/Baker win, Fairhope loses – 3) Murphy, 4) Fairhope

Baker/Fairhope win, Murphy loses – 3) Fairhope, 4) Baker

Baker wins, Fairhope/Murphy loses – 3) Fairhope, 4) Baker
