      VHSL Modifies H.S. Football Playoff Formatting

      The VHSL has made some modifications to its new high school football playoff format. Those changes are listed below and taken from the VHSL's official release. The main reason for the changes are in regards to excessive traveling and lower game day gate income under the initial format.

      Top 16 by power rating regardless of conference and cross bracket semifinals

      Group 4A

      Top 16 by power rating regardless of conference and semifinals will NOT cross bracket

      Group 5A

      5 A South: Top 8 from Central Conferences bracketed together; Top 8 from Eastern Conferences bracketed together, final teams from each bracket meet in state semifinal (will NOT cross bracket semifinals)

      5A north: Top 16 by power rating regardless of conference and will NOT cross bracket semifinals
