List: School enrollment for remaining 64 teams

It could be said that no team in the playoffs has done more with less than Warren County, a school of 159 students, according to GHSA enrollment numbers used for the 2020-21 reclassification. Warren County is the fourth-smallest GHSA school that fields a football team, ahead of only Stewart County, Glascock County and Central of Talbotton. By comparison, the No. 1-ranked Class A public-school team, Irwin County, has 498 students. Below are the GHSA-listed enrollment numbers for the 64 quarterfinal teams. The signs + and - indicate whether a school is moving up or down in classification for 2020-21. High numbers of out-of-zone students might cause a school to play higher than its raw enrollment totals.
