The D Zone's Week 5 Michigan High School Football Playoff Tracker

This is The D Zone's 2nd week of the Michigan High School Football Playoff Tracker.  We understand a lot of core concepts of MHSAA's playoff point system, but this is more focused on our vast knowledge of the talent and teams across Michigan.  We have our nose on every area of the state, so very few things catch us by surprise these days.  We try our best to be realistic as possible, but you need to realize we looked at over 200 schedules to determine this.  

Thankfully the MHSAA has this well put together list of every schools enrollment and records, this saved us a few hours of work. - link

This is essentially a research model, that we hope will help teams determine their spots better and stat junkies to have some numbers to chew on.  We predict which teams would clinch and qualify for the playoffs and organize them by enrollment.

256 teams can clinch playoff births, we have 264 teams on the list which is down from 272 last week. The extra 8 to help show the range of the breakpoint.

The green highlight would demonstrate where a breakpoint occurs, if green we'll show you after the name which division we predict them to be in and the start of the next division.  The red highlight illustrates a range that could essentially go one way or the other.

THESE ARE NOT RANKINGS! THEY ARE ORGANIZED BY HIGHEST ENROLLED SCHOOL TO THE LOWEST!  CLICK HERE FOR WEEK 5 RANKINGS

Week 6 Football Playoff Listing: Schools with 3+ Wins

EAST LANSING, Mich. – Sept. 27 – Here is a list of Michigan High School Athletic Association football playing schools, displaying their win-loss records and playoff averages through the fifth week of the season.
Schools on this list are in enrollment order for 11-player teams, with 8-player teams ordered by playoff average. An asterisk (*) beside a record indicates a team has eight or fewer games scheduled. A caret (^) beside a school’s name indicates a team is one win away from playoff qualification.

Those schools with 11-player teams with six or more wins playing nine-game schedules, or five or more wins playing eight games or fewer, will qualify for the MHSAA Football Playoffs beginning Oct. 28. Schools with 5-4, 4-3 or 4-4 records may qualify if the number of potential qualifiers by win total does not reach the 256 mark. Schools with six or more wins playing nine-game schedules or five or more wins playing eight games or fewer may be subtracted from the field based on playoff average if the number of potential qualifiers exceeds the 256 mark.

Once the 256 qualifying schools are determined, they will be divided by enrollment groups into eight equal divisions of 32 schools, and then drawn into regions of eight teams each and districts of four teams each. Those schools with 8-player teams will be ranked by playoff average at season’s end, and the top 16 programs will be drawn into regions of eight teams each for the playoff in that division, which also begins Oct. 28.
To review a list of all football playoff schools, individual school playoff point details and to report errors, visit the Football page of the MHSAA Website.

The announcement of the qualifiers and first-round pairings for both the 11 and 8-player playoffs will take place at 7 p.m. on Oct. 23 on the Selection Sunday Show on FOX Sports Detroit. The playoff qualifiers and pairings will be posted to the MHSAA Website following the Selection Sunday Show.

    • Eastern Michigan
    • Ferris State
    • Wayne State
  • Intangibles:
    • I am very coachable, when my coach tells me where he would like it, I put it there. I give the other team the ball on their side of the 50, no matter where I am. I can pin the ball inside the 20 and 10 easily. I am consistent on field goals and am stellar on kickoffs.
  • How I play the game:
    • Calm and collective, the big stages don't faze me, I get my job done, with no complaints.
  • Outlook on High School Football and it's experiences
    • I love my teammates and coaches, we have a very good environment and chemistry. I have aspirations of playing at Ford Field for the Prep Bowl this year. I also hope to win some accomplishments and awards from the league, county, and state.
  • Discuss the potential opportunity or the opportunity of playing on the next level
    • Playing at the next level has interested me for awhile. What interests me is a good school, somewhere with a good student body and fan base. I hope to have very good coaches that care about the students and their performance on the field and in the classroom.
  • Other accolades and/or awards or miscellaneous
    • Scholar-Athlete freshman year, 3 Varsity Letters as sophomore.
