While no Georgia high school football team has a shot at our “mythical” national championship, it’s been a very solid year for teams in the state when it comes to the High School Football America Top 100 that is created with our proprietary algorithm.

On Sunday, three new teams from the Peachtree State entered the national rankings.

Defending 5A champ Rome make its first appearance in the national rankings after beating former No. 49 Buford in a rematch of the 2016 state championship game on Friday.  The Wolves, who will play Warner Robins for the AAAAA title game this weekend, are ranked No. 83 this week.

Marist and Blessed Trinity, who will play for the AAAA championship Saturday break into the rankings at No. 90 and No. 94 respectively. The game will be a rematch from their game on October 20 when Marist won 25-24.

The addition of Blessed Trinity, Marist and Rome gives Georgia nine teams in the Top 100.

North Gwinnett is No. 68 this week. Saturday, the Bulldogs will play No. 76 for the 7A state title.  Archer is ranked No. 78 in the latest national rankings.  Grayson, which climbed as high as No. 4 this year, is at No. 79.  Buford fell to No. 96 after its loss to Rome.  Cartersville, whose only loss this year was to Blessed Trinity, is No. 97.
