Southeast Region Top 10: Week 1

Southeast Region Top 10

There’s shuffling inside the first in-season High School Football America Southeast Region Top 10.

The top five teams held their spot, but McGill-Toolen (Alabama) and Mill Creek (Georgia) each moved-up.  Both picked-up impressive season opening wins — McGill-Toolen over Spanish Fort, in a battle of 2015 state champs, and Mill Creek beat two-time Class AAAAAA defending champ Colquitt County.

New to the poll this week is South Pointe (South Carolina) after beating former #7 Northwestern (South Carolina).

One note about this week’s rankings: we didn’t county the Florida Kickoff Classics in our proprietary algorithm that determines our rankings.
