List: Teams that were winless one season and reached playoffs the next

ajc.com

Cherokee, Creekside and Forsyth Central made the playoffs this season after finishing 0-10 last year. They are among 28 teams to go from winless to the playoffs in one season since 1996, when the GHSA expanded the playoffs to four teams per region. (This does not count 1996 Greenbrier and 2006 Chattahoochee County, which made the playoffs in their first seasons of varsity football, nor any teams that went winless because of forfeits.)
