GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Nine weeks are in the books for the 2019 Florida high school football season and the FHSAA has given us another round of updated RPI rankings meaning we are another week closer to the playoffs.

As such this update provides the entire state a glimpse of what the potential playoff matchups could be looking like in early November, but remember things change, even with four weeks to go.

In Classes 5A-8A, district record was taken into consideration except on certain exceptions which are noted.

Top 6

No. 1 Pensacola Catholic
No. 2 Trinity Catholic
No. 3 Florida High

PROJECTED REGIONAL QUARTERFINAL PAIRINGS

No. 1 Pensacola Catholic – BYE
No. 5 Baldwin at No. 4 Episcopal
No. 6 Trinity Christian (Jacksonville) at No. 3 Florida High
No. 2 Trinity Catholic – BYE

QUICK THOUGHTS: A lot of shuffling in the region again this week with Baldwin falling from the No. 2 seed down to the No. 5 seed after their loss to University Christian. Trinity Catholic benefits greatly from their victory of Victory Christian going from the No. 5 seed to the No. 2 seed. Florida High and Episcopal trade places among the No. 3 and No. 4 seeds, while Trinity Christian may have a hold on the No. 6 seed after getting a solid victory over Robert E. Lee last week.

QUICK THOUGHTS: Another region that seeds a lot of shuffling with Lakeland Christian and Holy Trinity firmly holding the top two seeds, but seeing The First Academy jump from the No. 5 seed to the No. 3 seed while Frostproof jumps to the No. 4 seed from No. 6. Father Lopez slides back from the No. 5 seed while Taylor (Pierson) slides back to the No. 6 seed.
