Athletic Directors and Football Coaches:


As the football season nears the halfway mark, the game cancellations have increased each week.  After discussion with many districts and coaches concerning the playoff possibilities, there was no easy fix for most brackets to adjust for lost games and “no contests”.  The TAPPS staff and Executive Board have adjusted the brackets for the 2020 football season to allow for all schools to enter the brackets if eligible in accordance with all other TAPPS governance.  (A school under disciplinary sanction would not be eligible for the playoffs if sanctions in place did not allow participation.) This expansion of the brackets is a one year (2020) exception in light of the current pandemic situation. Each district, in accordance with TAPPS By-Laws, shall determine the district’s final order of finish for seeding purposes. The TAPPS official shall be updated to reflect these changes. 


The revised brackets can be found on the TAPPS website by accessing the link outlined below.
