Georgia’s McEachern and Archer re-enter the Top 100

High School Football America 100

Two teams that began the season in our Preseason 100 are back in the national rankings after a couple of weeks on the outside looking in. McEachern is ranked No. 86 this week, while Archer is ranked No. 94.

Archer started the season at No. 66, but fell out after its loss to Milton, which is now ranked No. 73. McEachern began the season at No. 85, but dropped from the HSFA 100 after losing to Colquitt County, which is ranked No. 16 in the last national rankings.

McEachern moved back into the rankings after beating Cedar Grove Friday night 24-17. The Saints, who entered the game ranked No. 63, fall to No. 88 this week.

There are now eleven Georgia teams in the Top 100, which is tied for the second most teams in our national rankings. Texas leads the way with 13 teams in the HSFA 100, followed by Georgia and Florida with 11 each.
