Northview Ranked No. 4 In FHSAA Projected Playoff Rankings

October 9, 2019

The Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) on Tuesday released their football rankings showing which schools are currently in playoff positions.

Northview is ranked No. 4 in Region 1-1A, which means if the playoffs were held today the Chiefs would be in. There are no districts in Class 1A. The top six teams in each district make the playoffs, with the top two receiving a bye in the first week.

Teams are ranked based upon a RPI formula. RPI stands for Ratings Percentage Index. In short, it is a way to measure a team’s strength relative to other teams, based largely on the strength of their schedules.

Class 1A – Region 1

1. Baker (6-0), RPI .708

2. Freeport (6-1), .642

3. Vernon (5-1), .636

4. Northview (4-2), .593

5. Graceville (4-2), .536

6. Holmes County (2-4), .486

The Math

The RPI is based upon a mathematical formula that takes into the number of games won (WP), the winning percentage of the opponent (OWP),  and the winning percentage of the opponent’s opponents (OOWP). The math looks like this:

The score of a game does not matter beyond winner and loser. There is no factor for score differential in the RPI formula. A 1-0 win counts the same as 100-1.

Out of state opponents are counted the same as in state opponents. photo.
