GHSA Allows Four Major Changes to Meet Playoff Demands

Updated: Dec 2, 2020


The GHSA found themselves very short on playoff qualified officials entering the first round of the GHSA State Football Playoffs. The GHSA made 4 major adjustments to help meet the demand of the schedule.

  1. Lower test scores from the playoff test from required 84 down to 76.

  2. Require playoff camp attendance in 2019 or 2020 instead of 2020 only.

  3. Optional chain crews for first round games.

  4. Move all 2A and 4A games to Saturday for the first round.

It is still yet to be determined if any of these changes will be long term and if there are any more changes to come. Continue to check back for updates as more information becomes available.
