After last year’s successful debut, the Helmet Madness bracket challenge returns for 2021.
68 teams will compete for a spot to have one of their home games featured in our Spotlight Game of the Week series this fall, which will go to the winner of the tournament.
Voting in each matchup will take place over two days on the website and votes can be cast every 30 minutes. Voting is logged per IP address, which means if you have multiple devices on one Wi-Fi network, only one device may vote per 30 minutes on that network.
The four area teams that won state championships in 2020 each earned No. 1 seeds. Only helmets that were worn in the 2020 season were eligible and only one helmet will represent each team this year, since most teams do not have multiple designs. Actual photos of helmets had to be in our database by Saturday, Feb. 27 to be eligible.
Brackets in each region are as follows:
Four “play-in” matchups will start the tournament today and run through noon Tuesday, March 2. The first full round of the tournament begins Wednesday, March 3, with matchups in two regions.
Oakland Region: West Creek vs. East Robertson
Summit Region: Portland vs. Hunters Lane
CPA Region: Antioch vs. Mt. Pleasant
Davidson Academy Region: Montgomery Central vs. Station Camp
