The National Federation of State High School Associations’ (NFHS) playoff system is simple: A tournament called the “National Championship” (or sometimes just “The Championship”) determines which high school football team represents the country in the Super Bowl of their sport. For those who have been wondering how this all works, here is an explanation. The highest level of high school football in the U.S. is Class VIAA, or even lower if your town doesn’t have an 11-man division like some do. The top teams have a chance to win a state title, and the championship game is played to determine who will get that opportunity. Once a season, each team that wins its league contest advances to one of two semifinal contests for qualifying for the championship game — one at home and one away from home. From there, it’s on to single elimination play until one team from each state qualifies for the Super Bowl of their sport: Football & Cheerleading If you are like most Americans, you probably know about football and cheerleading as separate sports. But these two things go hand in hand in American high schools — especially at this level. Whether you are teaching students how to lead their own practice or leading your squad through a pep rally routine before a gamenight routine at home or on the road, being a cheerleader means something to students and parents alike because they can help instill a love of sports and
What is the High School Football National Championship?
The High School Football National Championship, commonly called the “National Championship,” is one of two major high school sports competitions in the United States, the other being the National High School Invitation Tournament (NHSIT). It is held every year to determine which high school football team is “championship-eligible” for the following year. Each of the eligible teams (each with a record, if they are not current members of a state championship) plays one game against the other teams, with the winner advancing to the championship game.
What does it take to win this thing?
The champion team from each conference will meet in the National Championship game. The winners of the conference tournaments will play each other in the National Championship game. The teams that win the semi-finals will meet in the National Championship game. The winners of the semi-finals will play each other in the National Championship game. A final record of 15 wins, 2 losses and 1 tie will determine which school will take home the hardware. The format of the final game will consist of wild-card teams playing against the remaining unbeaten teams in the playoff bracket.
How do you even get into this thing?
The application process for teams to play in the National Championship is fairly stringent. Each school is required to submit a squad list and coaching staff, along with other necessary documentation, to the NFHS. Teams that are granted permission to play in the National Championship are then officially recognized by the league.
Is it even possible?
Even with the best intentions in the world, it is extremely difficult for a high school team to compete at the highest level of high school football. There are just too many great players, too many excellent coaches and too many well-coached teams to list here. To make it to the National Championship, a team must have a very good coach who can get his students to play together as a team, a great recruiting class that can solidify the program and provide leadership and a great season.
Teams to Watch: Who will win this thing?
The odds of winning the National Championship are pretty good for the most part, but not sure-fire. The best teams are the ones that can win at least one game by themselves, so that they have a fighting chance against the best teams in the country. However, being a part of a great program and winning a state championship are both huge factors in determining your team’s success.
The National High School Football Championship is not to be missed. This is the most sought after event in high school sports and the entire country is watching. The competition is stiff and the outcome even more so. If you are a school or team trying to make a name for yourself and get the recognition you deserve, or be recognized for what you have done, the National Championship is a must-win game that you must prepare for.
The most important thing a team can do is put the team first. Everyone on the team needs to be on the same page with what the team wants to do and how they will do it. Also, the coach needs to be on top of his game and ready to impart his knowledge to the team and push them in the right direction.
