There’s a new No. 1 in the High School Football America Georgia Top 10. Archer climbs into the top spot thanks to North Gwinnett’s upset of former top dawg Grayson in the Class AAAAAAA playoffs. Archer, which beat Grayson 6-3 during the regular season, had been behind the Rams because of a weaker strength of schedule in our proprietary algorithm.
Archer will put its No. 1 ranking on-the-line this week against Colquitt County, which re-enters the Top 10 at No. 8 in the state quarterfinals.
North Gwinnett moves-up three spots this week to No. 4 and will play Marietta in the quarters. In the other AAAAAAA quarterfinals No. 6 Tift County faces No. 7 Brookwood and Parkview meets McEachern, which upset former No. 5 Lowndes on Friday.
In addition to Colquitt County rejoining the rankings, Blessed Trinity makes its first appearance in the statewide rankings this week at No. 10 after upsetting Cartersville 21-19, snapping the Hurricanes’ 41-game win streak.
