HS football, Poll talk Week 6

Take Me To Post Comment Form

After a week when the fun and games of the sports world took a backseat to the very real world problems of one of the area's high school football coaches, it's good to get back to the action on the field.

Thankfully, there's plenty in that realm to entertain us this week, starting with 8-AAA opening subregion play. White County-Lumpkin County is the maquee game in my mind, but the results from North Hall-Chestatee and Franklin County-Stephens County will tell us just as much about the pecking order of the North subregion.

Though we know anything can happen, it seems pretty clear that Gainesville and Monroe Area are at the forefront of 8-AAA South. I've got Gainesville back in my top 10 after an impressive win (especially in the second half) against Franklin County last week, and Monroe Area right behind them. Until the Red Elephants and Purple Hurricanes meet in two weeks, the match-ups in this subregion are a little less compelling.

Here's this week's top 10. My official ballot is below.

You're not going to find a link to this week's AP poll here. It's still posted elsewhere on this site, and for the time being it's still what we're using as the "official" state rankings, but I'm not going to bring any further attention to it, because, frankly, it's a ...

There's still two weeks left in the regular season, but for most teams in Northeast Georgia, this Friday marks the end of the subregion schedule. For those teams, or at least for the ones in their division's top three, the playoffs start next week. In the meantime, there's still plenty left to ...

They're 6-1, undefeated in their subregion, and they trailed the No. 7 team in the state by only three points deep into the fourth quarter.So why can't the White County Warriors get any respect?To be fair, the Warriors aren't that far from top-10 recognition; they fell just one spot outside ...

HS football: Poll talk, Week 8
October 13, 2010
It feels like I've been saying this a lot lately, but this Friday brings a pivotal slate of games in Northeast Georgia -- for area teams in and just outside of the state's top 10 rankings, and for the much more important region standings. The matchups are especially intriguing in 8-AAA, ...

It didn't take as long as I thought it would for Gainesville to make its return to the Georgia Prep Football Top 10.The ninth-ranked Red Elephants began the year at No. 6, based largely on the fact that they finished last season at No. 2. Their massive losses on both ...
