It’s an awesome concept but one that will never come to pass.

Bryant would demolish Junction City. Maybe if both teams only played the same 22 starters plus a kicker the entire game, then maybe JC would have a chance. Don’t matter how good you are if you’re tired and your opponent brings in fresh legs every other play.
LRC vs Arkadelphia sounds like a interesting matchup but won’t be. LRC by a lot.
Booneville would stomp Greenwood if this was way back in the day. But today, Greenwood by a mercy rule.

Bryant has the bye obviously.
Greenwood vs LRC would be a pretty good match up. LRC kept offense monster PA to only 38 points total and 7 in the second half. They’ll have to not only hope to do the same to Greenwood, but they’ll need to score I’d say 30+ in hopes to beat Greenwood. And with Greenwood’s dominating defense, I don’t see that happening.
Greenwood by 17.

Greenwood vs Bryant sounds awesome. Not sure really either has a definite advantage. But I’m sure the winner would only win by no more than 14.

Really there’s no point in bringing in the 4A to 2A champs. LRC could maybe beat Greenwood if that night happened to be the 1 time out of 10 Greenwood doesn’t win.

The Overall championship would be: Bryant vs Greenwood. I'd take Bryant +7, but wouldn't count out Greenwood from an upset.

LR Christian's defense wouldn't know what to have done with Peyton Holt, I'd take Greenwood +14.

4A/3A/2A wouldn't have a prayer of beating any of the 6A/7A champs. Mercy Rules all the way around.

Greenwoods offense would have had to score every single drive.

That happened quite a bit this year, especially in the First Half. I don't recall many punts nor turnovers.

I agree with most of your post and reasoning.  I am not so sure anybody would mercy-rule Booneville due to Booneville's immense size and strength on their line and ability to limit total possessions for a game. Plus, Booneville would move the chains more slowly than normal against 3A opponents which would eat up even more clock.   Just my take on it.   I think in the end, roster sizes do cause the larger schools to win out due to the fatigue factor, but not so sure Booneville isn't an exception to this rule to some degree causing them to avoid the mercy rule.

Guess you missed their Semi-final game.
