Editor’s Note: The Arkansas high school football season is underway, and Rex Nelson shares his Arkansas High School Football Rankings, featured on his Southern Fried Blog.

Rex Nelson Archive PageIt might have been the game of the year thus far in Arkansas high school football.

Fuller Chandler threw a six-yard touchdown pass to Trey Smith with just six seconds remaining in the game, and Springdale Har-Ber defeated Fayetteville by a final score of 47-43 in Springdale. We had Fayetteville ranked No. 2 in the state and Har-Ber No. 3 coming into the game.

Just two weeks ago, Har-Ber was No. 9. But that was before back-to-back victories over Bentonville (31-21) and Fayetteville.

Meanwhile, the No. 1 Pine Bluff Zebras recorded its fourth consecutive shutout with a 35-0 victory over Little Rock Hall. The Zebras have outscored their past four opponents 157-0.

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


1. Pine Bluff

2. Springdale Har-Ber

3. Pulaski Academy

4. Greenwood

5. Cabot

6. Fayetteville

7. Bentonville

8. Little Rock Christian

9. Benton

10 Sylvan Hills
