Rex Nelson’s Week 5 Arkansas High School Football Rankings


Week 5 Arkansas High School Football Rankings from Rex Nelson

Editor’s Note: Each week Rex Nelson shares his Arkansas High School Football Rankings. Here are Rex’s rankings.

Rex Nelson Archive PageThe high school football regular season is halfway finished.

This we know:

– The Bulldogs might not be in the state’s largest classification, but Greenwood could play with anyone. Coach Rick Jones’ crew extended its winning streak to 43 games on Friday night.

– Cabot is far better than anyone had expected. The Panthers are the best football team in central Arkansas, with Pulaski Academy and Conway right behind as far as the central part of the state is concerned.

– It’s going to be fun to watch Fayetteville, Bentonville, Fort Smith Southside and Springdale Har-Ber battle it out down the stretch. All are capable of winning a Class 7A state title. Throw in the fact that Springdale, Rogers and Rogers Heritage are improved. There’s some great football being played in northwest Arkansas.

– I sure hope I get to see Pulaski Academy play Camden Fairview in the playoffs.

– Can you believe that Arkadelphia, Ashdown, Malvern and Nashville are in the same conference? Those teams are a combined 17-3 going into this week’s games.
