While it’s only week two of the high school football season, the playoff matchups might be released as early as next week.
The Florida High School Athletic Association announced the new-look classifications and regions Monday. The announcement comes a little over a week after schools decided on opting in or out of the postseason.
Navarre is in Region 1-7A with Atlantic Coast, Buchholz, Chiles, Creekside, Crestview, First Coast, Fleming Island, Fletcher, Leon, Lincoln, Niceville and Tate.
Playoff pairings will be made via blind draw.
The top three teams in the region, as determined by the draw, will be given an automatic berth into the eight-team regional that begins Nov. 20.
The remaining 10 teams in Region 1-7A will face each other in play-in games on Nov. 13. The five winners will advance to the regional.
A decision on volleyball pairings for the district tournaments could be made as early as this week. District tourney play is scheduled to take place the week of Oct. 12. The district tourney champ and runner-up will advance to the regional tournament.
