It’s time for JoxPreps Bracketology for the 2020 season!

This has been quite the season! We are inching closer to the playoffs and with our bracketology, we like to take a look at how we feel the brackets could play out with only a few weeks left in region play. 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 – none of this is set in stone yet. As we near the end of the season, teams will begin to lock up playoff spots, and we will make sure to note when that happens.

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 4A as of right now:

* – Seeds/teams marked in red are still up in the air.

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. Williamson (5-1)LOCKED
2. Mobile Christian (5-1)LOCKED
3. Jackson (4-2)LOCKED
4. Vigor (4-2)LOCKED

Others that could grab a spot: None

Jackson beat Vigor to earn the third seed.


Region 2

1. Alabama Christian (7-0)LOCKED
2. St. James (6-1)LOCKED
3. Dale County (5-2)LOCKED
4. Geneva (3-4)LOCKED

Others that could grab a spot: None

The top three seeds are set.

There is a three-way tie at 3-4 between Geneva, Bullock County and Straughn that Geneva would win (see below). They all beat each other, so it would go to defeated non-region opponents win totals. Right now:

Geneva – 7 (beat Slocomb who has 7 wins)

Bullock County – 0 (beat Central-Hayneville which doesn’t count because they are 3 classes below)

Straughn – 0 (bear Pleasant Home and Red Level which doesn’t county because they are 3 classes below)

So Geneva would win that (Bullock County can beat Verbena, but it won’t be enough).


Region 3

1. American Christian (7-0)LOCKED
2. Bibb County (6-1)LOCKED
3. Montevallo (5-2)LOCKED
4. West Blocton (4-3)LOCKED

Others that could grab a spot: None
