The one bit of normalcy in an otherwise abnormal 2020 season is that all eight River Parish teams have once again qualified for the high school football playoffs.
St. Charles Catholic drew the highest seed among River Parish teams. The Comets earned the No. 2 seed in select Division III and will have a first-round bye. SCC will take on the winner of the game between No. 7 St. Thomas Aquinas and No. 10 Dunham.
The other River Parish select team, Riverside Academy, drew a No. 7 seed in Division IV and will host No. 10 seed St. Edmund. A Rebels win would advance Riverside to face the winner of the game between No. 2 Vermilion Catholic and No. 15 St. Frederick.
In non-selected Class 5A, Destrehan earned the No. 5 seed and will host Ouachita Parish, the No. 28 seed. With a win, the Wildcats could face a District 7-5A rematch in the second round should No. 21 Terrebonne defeat Dutchtown, the No. 12 seed.
Hahnville received the No. 20 seed in Class 5A and will have to travel to take on No. 13 seed Ruston. A win by the Tigers would advance Hahnville to face the winner of the game between No. 4 Ponchatoula and No. 29 St. Amant.
East St. John is the No. 18 seed in Class 5A and will be on the road at Woodlawn of Baton Rouge, the No. 18 seed. Like Destrehan ESJ could face a second round District 7-5A rematch with a win and an upset by No. 31 Thibodaux over No. 2 John Ehret.
In Class 3A, defending state champion St. James is the No. 5 seed and will host No. 28 Abbeville in the opening round. A win by Wildcats would advance SJH to the second round against the winner of the game between No. 12 Sterlington and No. 28 West Feliciana.
Also in Class 3A, Lutcher narrowly missed out on hosting a first-round game.
The Bulldogs received the No. 17 seed and will have to take on Grant, the No. 16 seed. A win by Lutcher would advance the Bulldogs to the second round versus the winner of the game between top-seeded Jennings and No. 32 Erath.
