Class 5A Seeds 1-4
Mayfield, Cleveland, and Manzano are hold these positions, but much could changes this coming weekend. The team that can really shake up the seedings is Manzano if they are to lose to Eldorado. Manzano right now is living off wins against Clovis and Valley, but are currently 0-2 in District 2-5A play and if Eldorado beats them, Manzano cannot be seeded higher than the Eagles in the play-offs. Mayfield is going to get a top six seed. They are 5-1 against New Mexico 5A teams and 1-0 against District Champs or District Runner Ups. Cleveland is playing some great football right now, if they beat Rio Rancho the Storm would likely grab a top four seed and have to be seeded higher than Rio Rancho in the tournament.
Class 5A Seeds 8-12
Eldorado, Carlsbad, and Gadsden are the final teams trying to get in. Eldorado can punch their play-off ticket with a win over Manzano. Eldorado is 2-2 against district champs and district runner ups and has a win over Mayfield. The Carlsbad Cavemen are 5-5 on the year and are 0-5 against district champs or district runner ups. Gadsden is 5-5 and 0-4 against district champs or district runner ups.

Goddard, Los Lunas, Aztec are locks for a top four seed. Check this out: Goddard is 7-0 against District Champs or District Runner Ups. No one in the state can say anything to be ranked higher than the Rockets. The Rockets would be No. 1 in the Class 5A Bracket. Los Lunas is 4-0 against District Champs or District Runner Ups and 7-0 against 4A teams. They have outscored their last six opponents by a combined 316-24. I've seen both Los Lunas and Artesia and Los Lunas is 10 points better. Artesia at the No. 3 or No. 4 spot. The Bulldogs are 7-2 this year and 4-2 against District Champs or District Runner Ups.
Class 4A Seeds 4-5
Deming, Aztec, Farmington should each land home games right? Well Deming is 4-2 against 4A teams and 3-1 against District Champs or District Runner Ups. Their two losses come against Belen and Artesia. Now St. Pius X is more than likely feeling they should be in this spot hosting a home field game in the play-offs, but while they beat Piedra Vista they also lost to Aztec and Farmington. Aztec is a top six seed no doubt. If they beat Kirtland Central next weekend they'll be 5-3 against 4A teams and 2-3 against District Champs or District Runner Ups. Key win coming against St. Pius X. Farmington could be on the road if they lose to Piedra Vista in week 11. They are 5-2 against 4A teams and 2-2 against District Champs or District Runner Ups. Hard to see a third place team in District 1-4A hosting a home game in the play-offs, but that win over St. Pius X was huge, especially if St. Pius X beats Moriarty for the District 5-4A title game.
