GeauxPreps High School Football Postseason Divisional Rankings – Quarterfinals Digital Staff


1. Ruston

2. Destrehan

3. Zachary

4. Central

5. Dutchtown

6. Airline

7. Walker

8. Mandeville

Three “bluebloods” man the top three spots in this division’s final eight.  Ruston, Destrehan, and Zachary have all recently visited the Dome and are comfortable having targets on their backs.  Central and Dutchtown are inseparable with the Wildcats showing they belong by standing toe to toe in fistfights against Catholic, Zachary, and Neville.  Walker is in the quarterfinals for the first time ever.  The Mandeville-Airline promises to be a shootout and the 21-seeded Skippers could advance to the semis. 


1. North DeSoto

2. Cecilia

3. Lutcher

4. Opelousas

5. Assumption

6. Iowa

7. Jennings

8. Northwest

North DeSoto has been the pre-season favorite since season’s start.  Cecilia has been one of the most explosive teams down the stretch.  Lutcher-Opelousas promises to be a good one ahd should see North DeSoto the following Friday.  Assumption’s resurgence is a welcomed look to this division but the Mustangs could be tested by upstart Northwest.  Iowa and Jennings are upset-minded this Thanksgiving week.


1. Sterlington

2. St. James

3. Many

4. Union Parish

5. Amite

6. Jena

7. Bogalusa

8. Pine

This is a wide-open Division with a handful of programs having a legit shot of winning the state title.  Sterlington, St. James, Many, Union Parish, and Amite have all played for state titles in recent years with four of the five taking a trophy home.  Jena looks to prove its worth and #1 seeding versus a perennial top program in Amite at home this Friday.  Bogalusa certainly has the talent to advance to the semis and Pine seeks an upset. 


1. Oak Grove

2. Kentwood

3. Haynesville

4. Logansport

5. Mangham

6. Homer

7. Welsh

8. Jeanerette

Oak Grove and Kentwood look to stay away from upsets and keep their collision course to a semifinal meeting.  Haynesville working to get back to the Dome for the first time since 2016.  Logansport has won ten in a row since losing opening week to Calvary.  Mangham hit some speedbumps early in the season and is familiar with Oak Grove and will have a solid plan against the Tigers this week.  Homer understands deep runs as of late and will not be intimidated facing Kentwood.  Welsh and Jeanerette are longshots.


1. John Curtis

2. Edna Karr

3. Catholic

4. Acadiana

5. Holy Cross

6. Archbishop Rummel

7. Alexandria

8. St. Paul’s

John Curtis blasted Karr in its week ten matchup, then thwarted a comeback challenge from St. Augustine on Friday.  The Patriots face Catholic in the quarterfinals and the two programs faced each other in 2017, 2018, and 2019.  Edna Karr used the bye week to bounce back and get right for a run to the Dome.  Acadiana may be the strongest 8 seed on any bracket with its veer offense and potent defense.  Holy Cross blasted Jesuit in the second round but will face a tough test from Acadiana this weekend.  Rummel has been to Shreveport twice and defeated #2 Shreve in the second round and faces 10-1 St. Paul’s who seeks a signature win.  ASH proved it belongs by shutting out Brother Martin and will return to New Orleans this week to play Karr.


1. St. Thomas More

2. Lafayette Christian

3. E.D. White

4. Teurlings Catholic

5. Archbishop Shaw

6. John F. Kennedy

7. McDonogh #35

8. St. Michael

Bracket watchers all have STM and LCA meeting in the finals, but there are still two games to win to reach the Dome.  The separation between E.D. White and Teurlings is paper thin and both programs could upset LCA in the semis.  JFK will give Shaw all it can handle.  McDonogh 35 and St. Michael both need Herculean efforts on Friday to move to the semis.


1. St. Charles Catholic

2. University Lab

3. Calvary Baptist

4. Newman

5. Notre Dame

6. Parkview Baptist

7. Lake Charles Prep

8. Episcopal

SCC, University, and Calvary have been the top three teams in this division since Day One.  While Notre Dame has been the most common opponent for the Comets in the last decade, SCC should advance.  Newman has maybe a better team than the last two seasons.  Parkview, LCCP, and Episcopal face tough tasks this week.


1. Ouachita Christian

2. Southern Lab

3. Vermilion Catholic

4. Ascension Catholic

5. Riverside

6. St. Mary’s

7. Central Catholic

8. St. Martin’s

OCS is the team to beat, blasting 5A Ouachita, defeating Oak Grove, and Dallas Christian.  Southern Lab is equipped with weapons to defeat OCS and a semifinal meeting may await.  Not much separates VC, Ascension Catholic, and Riverside with any of the three capable of making it to the finals.  St. Mary’s and Central Catholic have tall orders this week.  St. Martin’s needs its national recruit running back to run wild this week and reverse its regular season blowout loss to Riverside.
