Hodgson's Elizjah Lewis scores a touchdown against Sussex Central

Four weeks remain in the regular season, so it’s time to start taking look at the teams who are contention to make the DIAA Division 1 Football Tournament.

Football’s point system is fairly straight forward. It takes into account the size of the opposing school, and how many games they have won.

The challenge, and why we always will tag these figures as unofficial, is that many schools don’t have easily accessible attendance counts, and the figures go back to the 2016 count, so if a school raised/lowered in 2017, it does not matter.

As always, if you see something wrong, please drop Sean Greene a line at sgreene@wdel.com
