Two weeks into the 2021 season and the High School Football America South Region Top 25 looks very different from our preseason rankings powered by NFL Play Football.

The top three teams — No. Thompson (Alabama), No. 2 St. Thomas Aquinas (Florida) and No. 3 IMG Academy (Florida) — held their spots. However, there was a complete shake-up from No. 3 on down, including five new teams.

The southern region is made-up of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee.
