The PIAA District 1 football playoff seedings were determined in a committee meeting Sunday morning at North Penn and will become official at noon Monday.
North Penn (10-0), Coatesville (10-0), Garnet Valley (10-0), and Downingtown West (9-1) are the top four seeds in the 16-team Class 6A tournament.
No. 1 seed North Penn will take on No. 16 Ridley, which is riding a six-game winning streak. The Green Raiders gained the final spot with Friday night's 31-28 win over Central League rival Haverford High.
Defending district champion and No. 2 Coatesville, which has outscored its foes by 472-102, opens against No. 15 Central Bucks East. C.B. East downed Suburban One League Continental Conference foe Pennridge, 24-20, in a must-win contest on Saturday afternoon.
No. 3 Garnet Valley, last year's district runner-up, begins against 2014 titlist Pennsbury. Garnet Valley's offense is sparked by running back Colin Robinson and quarterback Cole Palis.
No. 4 Downingtown West, whose only loss came against Ches-Mont Division rival Coatesville, starts vs. No. 13 Upper Darby. The Whippets and Royals have solid ballcarriers in Tyriq Lewis and Kareem McAdams, respectively.
One of the more intriguing first-round matchups is No. 10 Downingtown East (8-2) vs. No. 7 Spring-Ford (7-2).
Downingtown East is led on offense by quarterback Luke Davis and running backs Garvey Jonassaint and Zach Hamilton. Spring-Ford counters with quarterback Ryan Engro, running back Stephen Brill, and receiver Dante Bonanni.
In the 16-team Class 5A playoffs, the top four seeds are Del-Val League champ Penn Wood (9-1), Upper Dublin (8-1), Radnor (8-2), and Academy Park (8-2).
Penn Wood has talented playmakers in quarterback Desman Johnson Jr., halfbacks Elijah Gleplay and Michael Dargan, and receivers Kennedy Poles and Edmund Dennis.
Defending district titlist No. 11 Unionville (4-6) has a rematch with No. 6 Springfield-Delco (7-3). Unionville topped Springfield, 35-25, in last year's final.
