For the third time this year, we have a new No. 1 in the High School Football America Alabama Top 10. Central (Phenix City) moves into the top spot thanks to Hoover’s defeat of former top dog Hewitt-Trussville on Friday.
It’s a big week ahead in the Top 10 with Central facing No. 4 McGill-Toolen in one 7A semifinal with the winner moving-on to the state championship game in two weeks where against the winner of No. 2 Thompson and No. 3 Hoover. The Thompson/Hoover game is a rematch of the October 27 game won by Thompson 32-25.
Hewitt-Trussville dropped-out of our national rankings, while McGill-Toolen pulled into the Top 100 at No. 97.
In 6A, No. 5 Pinson Valley will face No. 8 Austin in a battle of unbeatens.
