Rex’s Rankings: 1 Week of High School Football Remains


Editor’s Note: Rex Nelson shares his Southern Fried Blog‘s Arkansas High School Football Top 10 with our readers every week. At the link below the Top 10, Rex ranks each classification. Nine weeks into the season, and here is how Rex sees the teams throughout the state:

Rex Nelson Archive PageThere’s only one week left in the regular season in high school football.

Fayetteville maintains its spot at No. 1 overall following a 56-7 victory over Springdale. But North Little Rock, Bentonville, Springdale Har-Ber and perhaps even Fort Smith Northside appear capable of getting hot in the playoffs and making it to the state championship game at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock.

Greenwood defeated Sheridan 52-13 on Friday and maintains the No. 1 spot in Class 6A. If the Bulldogs are challenged in the playoffs, it likely will be by Pine Bluff or Jonesboro.

Pulaski Academy remains No. 1 in Class 5A but received a stiff challenge last Friday before escaping with a 22-18 victory over Little Rock McClellan. Wynne, Sylvan Hills, McClellan and perhaps White Hall all have the ability to get rolling at the right time and make it to the championship game.

In Class 4A, it’s Warren, Nashville, Joe T. Robinson and everybody else.

Here are the updated rankings following nine weeks of the high school football season:


1. Fayetteville

2. Greenwood

3. North Little Rock

4. Pulaski Academy

5. Bentonville

6. Wynne

7. Springdale Har-Ber

8. Fort Smith Northside
