With one week to go before the Spring 2021 North Carolina high school football championships, Myers Park is the new No. 1 in the High School Football America North Carolina Top 10. The Mustangs, who have spent the entire season at No. 2, move to the top spot thanks to Vance’s win over former top dog Hough.
Vance, the defending 2019 4AA champs, avenged its regular season loss to Hough last Friday. The Cougars 24-10 victory means that they face the new No. 1 this week.
On the other side of the 4AA bracket, Rolesville will meet Wake Forest in a rematch of their regular season contest won by the Rams 36-3. Rolesville is up four spots this week in the statewide rankings to No. 6. Wake Forest returns to the Top 10 at No. 10.
Butler moves four spots this week to No. 3. The Bulldogs, who will play Grimsley in the 4A semis, have only lost to Myers Park. Back on March 24, MP beat Butler 24-21.
Two-time 3AA champ Weddington drops-out of the Top 10 after a shocking 21-10 loss to unbeaten Mount Tabor.
