It is hard to believe it is already Week 8 already and that means the district races will start to sort themselves out of who is a contender and who is really a pretender. However, for some teams, they can punch their tickets to the playoffs this week. Take a look to see who can do what in Class 4A this week with the Week 8 playoff scenarios.

DISTRICT 4A-1

District Standings
East Gadsden, 1-0
Walton, 1-0
Marianna, 0-1
Rutherford, 0-1

Skinny
The best team in the district is the team with the 0-1 record in Marianna, but Walton who has struggled so far this season is still in the playoff hunt. Very likely both playoff qualifiers from this district could be teams that will exit in the first round.
