ANALYSIS

South Pittsburg

The Pirates can’t lose their No. 1 status in the region even with a complete meltdown against Grace Baptist.  They still hold the tiebreaker over Whitwell and Copper Basin, so if they had the same record as either they would be above them automatically.  They’ll likely play Cornersville from Region 4-1A in the first round unless there’s a mixup in that region with the No. 3 and 4 seeds.  They likely won’t be much competition

Whitwell

Tracy Malone and crew are looking for their first playoff win of his tenure in Whitwell.  Luckily, they have a dream region in 3-1A that only bodes one real threat in South Pittsburg.  They’ve solidified a playoff spot, but they still have to down Copper Basin to claim a home playoff game.  If they can win against the Cougars, they’ll likely host Summertown in route to playing Columbia Academy who also happens to be their week ten opponent.
