2021 FHSAA Class 1A-4A Football Playoffs Quarterfinal Predictions

It is officially time for the quarterfinal round of the 2021 FHSAA football playoffs. Here are predictions for the third round of the postseason for Classes 1A-4A, a group of games that includes what should be some of the tops in the state this week.

Class 4A

  • South Walton 17, Bolles 35
  • Cocoa 35, The Villages Charter 10
  • Lakewood 28, Clewiston 14
  • Gulliver Prep 28, Cardinal Gibbons 24

The Class 4A playoffs offer arguably the top overall game of the week in the state of Florida in Gulliver Prep/Cardinal Gibbons, as well as an intriguing matchup when Cocoa hosts The Villages Charter. Each of these four games should be close throughout with South Walton/Bolles as a game that could end up being the best of all.

Class 3A

  • Trinity Catholic 14, Florida State 28
  • Lakeland Christian 24, Benjamin 21
  • Berkeley Prep 28, Clearwater Central Catholic 20
  • Chaminade-Madonna 45, Cardinal Newman 14

These four Class 3A matchups are all exciting contests, with Chaminade-Madonna/Cardinal Newman likely being the most predictable of the group. The other three should all be close contests throughout with Berkeley Prep/Clearwater Central Catholic as the game of the week from these four.

Class 2A

  • Trinity Christian 42, Munroe 21
  • Orlando Christian Prep 21, Zephyrhills Christian 14
  • First Baptist 35, Northside Christian 10
  • Champagnat Catholic 45, John Carroll Catholic 14

The Class 2A quarterfinals will likely see at least three games with a large margin of victory, with Orlando Christian Prep/Zephyrhills Christian likely being the closest game. The two teams have already met once this season back on Nov. 5, a game in which Orlando Christian Prep won 15-12 on the road.

Class 1A

  • Baker 35, Chipley 17
  • Blountstown 14, Madison County 28
  • Chiefland 17, Union County 24
  • Hawthorne 30, Pahokee 14

Class 1A will likely see four close games as well, two of which have the road team as the favorite. Expect Baker and Hawthorne to cruise to wins at home, as well as Madison County and Union County to pick up big wins on the road.
