Rex’s Rankings: After four weeks

Rex Nelson Archive PageFour weeks are in the books, and Fort Smith Northside continues to surprise us in high school football.

Going into last Friday, we had Fayetteville ranked No. 1 and Northside at No. 3.

The Grizzlies upset the Bulldogs, 27-24, in a game that wasn’t decided until the final seconds of play.

That vaulted 4-0 Conway into the top spot in the overall rankings. The Wampus Cats posted an impressive 45-10 victory over Siloam Springs last week.

Despite having one loss, I still think Greenwood is the class of Class 6A

And in Class 5A, Wynne and Pulaski Academy look to be on a collision course for the playoffs.

Here are the rankings as we head into Week 5:


1. Conway

2. Fort Smith Northside

3. Wynne

4. Fayetteville

5. North Little Rock

6. Pulaski Academy

7. Greenwood

8. Jonesboro

9. Fort Smith Southside

10. Camden Fairview
