Sometimes things come down to luck.

Such was the case for Pisgah football Friday night. After the Bears beat Brevard to clinch a share of the Mountain Six title, the coaches from Pisgah, Brevard and Smoky Mountain literally pulled numbers out of a hat to determine how the teams would be seeded in the playoffs.

Brevard got one, Smoky Mountain got two and Pisgah got three.

But head coach Brett Chappell wasn’t too worried.

“The thing is for us, I’m not going to take anything away from what we accomplished with our kids,” he said. “That’s the least of my concerns tonight. We’re excited about what our team did tonight. We’re excited we won a good game against a good football team.”

Chappell added that his feelings about this game reflect the way he feels about his team’s ability to bounce back after losing the conference opener at home against Smoky Mountain.

“It’s good for our kids to come back and rally like they did,” he said.

Chappell said that while he wouldn’t want to say for sure, he thinks Pisgah has a good chance of hosting the first first-round playoff game.

“They’re big on MaxPreps, and I think our MaxPreps ranking might be higher than theirs.”
