The second week of the 2021 high school football playoffs is this Friday. All playoff games are scheduled to kick off at 7 PM local time this Friday night. Brackets and rosters for the 2021 postseason series can be found at TSSAAsports.com or through the Playoff Headquarters link below.

TSSAA encourages everyone -- administrators, coaches, officials, and fans -- to work together to follow the protocols that local host schools have in place so that our student-athletes have the opportunity to enjoy athletic competition throughout the year. Although most TSSAA mandates from a year ago are no longer in place, it is important that visiting teams and spectators adhere to the rules or requirements instituted by local school boards, municipalities and other government agencies where they are traveling. TSSAA believes that every adult and every participant should do their part and conduct themselves safely and thoughtfully so that the schools can provide as many opportunities as possible for the student-athletes this fall.
