From the AJC and shared by the GHSA:  Full report here.

“Citing not enough officials available to work Friday, the Georgia High School Association on Monday moved all Class 4A and Class 2A playoff games to Saturday. Playoff games in the other six classifications remain scheduled for Friday. It’s not uncommon in recent years for a few regular-season games to be moved to Thursday or Saturday, allowing officials to work multiple days and alleviating the growing shortage of game officials in the state. The first round of the playoffs, though only 128 games instead of the roughly 175 for a typical regular-season Friday night, become an added challenge because of additional steps, including camp attendance and certain courses, that officials must take to become qualified to call playoff games.”

John McClellan’s high school football playoff picks: Unity looks like a lock to win state title. Rome, Darlington, Cartersville, Calhoun, Cedartown, Rockmart to advance. McClellan
