Neal Prince and Sexton appear in Division 4 in the latest high school football playoff projections compiled by snooze2you.com.

The final week of the high school football regular season is here and 14 teams from the Lansing area are already qualified for the state playoffs.

A few others are a win away from making the field, which will be unveiled Sunday evening by the Michigan High School Athletic Association.

The following is a look at what the playoffs could potentially look like when the field is revealed. The projections are compiled by snooze2you.com, which has been listing projected playoffs matchups for several weeks.

Notable changes this week have Lakewood and Sexton back in Division 4 after being included in the Division 5 field last week. Ithaca, which has been the state’s dominant program in Division 6 in recent years, remains a part of the Division 5 field. Whether Ithaca is Division 5 or Division 6 is one of the uncertainties with the playoffs near.

If Ithaca is Division 5 as projected, an intriguing matchup could be in store with a Lansing Catholic program it shares many similarities with, Lansing Catholic coach Jim Ahern is a former Ithaca coach.
