As we continue to roll toward to the Super 7, the postseason is shaking-up the High School Football America Alabama Top 10, powered by NFL Play Football.

At the top, Hoover solidified its spot at No. 1 with its second win of the season over No. 3 Hewitt-Trussville. The Bucs edged the Huskies 24-23 to earn a spot in the Class 7A state semifinals against No. 2 Thompson.

During the regular season, Hoover easily beat H-T 34-10.

Thompson, which lost to Hoover in the regular season finale 24-21, advanced to the state semis by beating Oak Mountain 45-7. The Warriors are seeking their third straight 7A state title.

On the other side of the bracket, No. 4 Central (Phenix City) will play No. 5 Auburn. In the state quarterfinals, Central outscored former No. 8 Theodore 77-41.

That loss dropped Theodore out of the latest rankings. Also falling-out this week is former No. 7 Spanish Fort, which lost to Opelika in the 6A playoffs. Opelika enters the Top 10 at No. 10.

This week, Opelika will play Hueytown, which breaks into the statewide rankings at No. 9.
