Football playoff schedule

Highland enters the 6A playoffs Friday night as the top overall seed and will host No. 16 Mountain Pointe.

It’s here.

After 11 grueling weeks of the regular season, the postseason for the 4A-6A conferences has finally arrived.

Teams have been seeded, matchups have been formed and now each will embark on their quest for a conference state title. Small schools – 2A and 3A – began postseason play earlier than the big schools. There are currently four teams left in each conference, American Leadership Academy – Gilbert, Snowflake, Valley Christian and Yuma Catholic in 3A and Morenci, Parker, Benson and Arizona Lutheran Academy in 2A. Those games will take place Saturday at Campo Verde High School and Desert Vista High School, respectively.

The Open Division, the top bracket filled with eight of the best teams from 4A, 5A and 6A competing for a state title will begin next Friday, Nov. 27.
