-Chatham did not receive a playoff berth. They contested that they should have received two rider points from a victory over Bartlett Yancey, N.C. Grayson County received the 16th and final seed in that region.

-Amherst County at 3-7 still made the playoffs as the 16 seed. They'll go on the road to Sherando.

-If Brookville upsets Northside and Monticello beats Rustburg. Monticello coach Jeff Woody would coach against his old team Brookville in the second round. Monticello would be at home.

-If the higher seeds win in the above matchups, Monticello would travel to Northside in the second round. Woody has faced Northside coach Burt Torrence and the Vikings a number of times in the playoffs over the past few years while Woody was at Brookville.

-An ABC 13 Sports Football Friday dream matchup of G.W. at Salem would take place in the 4A finals if both win to that point.

-Dogwood District fans: the only way Gretna and Dan River would play in the playoffs would be for the 2A state title because in 2A the VHSL cross-brackets the state semifinals (region finals).

-Heritage first faces Tunstall. If Heritage wins that - their prize - a game against either Christiansburg or William Byrd. Nothing comes easy in this region.
