Rex’s Rankings: After 7 Weeks of Arkansas High School Football


Editor’s Note: Each week Rex Nelson shares his Arkansas High School Football Rankings, featured on his Southern Fried Blog.

That was the biggest game Friday as Wynne drops out of the overall Top 10.

Conway, Fayetteville, North Little Rock, Pulaski Academy, Fort Smith Northside, Bryant, Benton, Pine Bluff, Jonesboro and Sylvan Hills all took care of business.

Those are our Top 10, and all of them won by 17 points or more.

Who could have guessed coming into this season that Bentonville would have four losses at this point?

Who could have guessed that Greenwood would have three losses?

Last season, we were referring to them as the University of Bentonville and the University of Greenwood on our statewide radio scoreboard show.

Still, I expect both teams to be factors down the stretch.

Here are the rankings after seven weeks of the high school football season:


1. Conway

2. Fayetteville

3. North Little Rock

4. Pulaski Academy

5. Fort Smith Northside

6. Bryant

7. Benton

8. Pine Bluff

9. Jonesboro

10. Sylvan Hills
