Top 25

The Georgia trio of Grayson, Roswell and Mill Creek are separated by a very close margin in the latest High School Football America National Top 25, which is created using our proprietary algorithm.  Grayson is ranked #11, followed by Roswell at #12 and Mill Creek at #13.

So what’s the road to a possible “mythical” national championship look like for the trio?  Below are the remaining schedule for the three.

Grayson (2-1), whose only loss was to #2 IMG Academy (Florida) in its season opener, plays two Alabama teams — Ramsay this week and Hoover on October 28th.  Hoover is currently ranked #2 in the latest High School Football America Alabama Top 10, while Ramsay is ranked #10.  The Rams’ AAAAAAA Region 8 schedule includes Archer (1-4), Newton (2-1-1), Rockdale County (1-3), Shiloh (1-4) and South Gwinnett (3-1).

Roswell (3-0), last year’s AAAAAAA runner-up, has non-league games left with Archer and Milton (1-3).  The Hornets then go into AAAAAAA Region 4 play against Cherokee (2-2), Etowah (4-1), Lassiter (4-0), Walton (2-2) and Woodstock (2-2).
