An email was sent to all schools who were still in the NCHSAA football playoffs on the Tuesday prior to Thanksgiving.  Now that the regional pairings are set,  it’s imperative that you get this to us no later than Tuesday afternoon (Dec.2) at 5 p.m.  We have already gotten some emails from schools so this should serve as a reminder.


Congratulations on advancing in this year’s NCHSAA football playoffs!

Our protocol for schools to provide information for championship program, press kit and press conference, announcing purposes, etc., has changed. Below are the specifics:

–all of the information below can be emailed and should be done with one email; make sure you put the NAME OF YOUR SCHOOL and FOOTBALL PLAYOFFS in the subject line for ease of handling at the NCHSAA

– email a team photo and the names of the members of your coaching staff
, preferably with coaching position (Jack Smith, defensive coordinator, etc)

 —please check to make sure that your team’s information in MaxPreps is up to date.   (the format from MaxPreps is fine, but we do need it emailed to us)

— we will also use stats from MaxPreps, so you should email a copy of those; but if you haven’t posted them a copy in whatever format you have would suffice

 — season highlights to be in the championship program; example is below.

Team has won conference regular season title three years in a row…QB John Doe was Player of the Year in the conference…Bill Smith and Mike Johnson joined Doe on all-conference team…Doe has committed to further his career at University of Michigan and now owns school career rushing record…team making fifth trip to NCHSAA state championships with three previous state crowns…has won six straight conference championships.
..stout defense allowing just 5.2 points per game. 

a copy of your roster; make sure that it is updated to reflect any junior varsity players who have been called up for postseason play; it should be as complete as possible (first and last names, positions, height and weight and year such as sophomore, junior, etc.) are necessary. The MaxPreps roster can be used if those categories are utilized and it is up to date..

a two-deep depth chart, which is especially helpful for media personnel since the games will be televised

a copy of your results; MaxPreps may be used if it is up to date

Please email to Patrick Stephenson at AND Rick Strunk at
