There’s an old saying, don’t put the cart before the horse. That would be wise for Longhorn football fans.
Johnson County has not locked down the No. 1 seed despite its 9-0 record. They can do so with a win over Unicoi County on Friday.
The Blue Devils can earn the No. 1 seed if they defeat Johnson County and Chuckey-Doak beats West Greene.
The Longhorns are No. 1 regardless of their outcome should West Greene knock off Chuckey-Doak. A West Greene win would put Claiborne County in as the No. 4 seed.
The top two seeds will be decided on Friday night when Austin East travels to Alcoa. Both teams are undefeated in Region play.
Kingston has already locked down the No. 3 seed. It’s the final spot that’s up for grabs.
Northview Academy is 2-4 in league play and 5-5 overall. They will earn the final spot if Kingston (7-2) can beat G-P on the road.
My prediction of first round playoff games
No. 4 Northview Academy at No. 1 Johnson County
No. 3 Kingston at No. 2 West Greene
No. 3 Unicoi County at No. 2 Austin East
No. 4 Claiborne County at No. 1 Alcoa
