JoxPreps High School Football Rankings – Week One


Week Zero saw many teams in our top ten play, but for some teams, this week will be the first time they get to see real competition.

Our top ten poll in each classification changed just a little bit, but no drastic moves after week zero.

In Class 7A, the only real move came from Central-Phenix City losing in the Champion’s Challenge to Hoover, which dropped them from third to sixth in our poll. We’ll see how they rebound this week.

In Class 6A, we do have a new #1 as Gardendale moves up after a 14-10 win on the road at Muscle Shoals. The Trojans drop from third to tenth after that game. We also have Clay-Chalkville moving up to fifth after holding on to beat Florence in a shootout. Also in 6A, Spanish Fort dropped their first game against last year’s 7A champion McGill-Toolen 24-3, so they drop to eighth in our poll. Hillcrest-Tuscaloosa moves into the poll at #3, after narrowly missing out on the preseason poll. Their dominant performance against Demopolis moved them up.

Class 5A sees Demopolis drop a few spots after losing to Hillcrest-Tuscaloosa, and Central-Clay County comes in after a great week one performance, but the top remains the same after St. Paul’s dominated Fairhope in week zero.

Class 4A saw #1 UMS-Wright drop to 7A Mary Montgomery 7-6. Although it was a three classification step up, UMS-Wright does drop to third after impressive showings from both Cordova and Andalusia this past weekend.

While Class 3A didn’t move much, outside of American Christian dropping a few spots, Class 2A saw Tanner drop their first game. That moved them out of the #1 spot and GW Long inched up to take it for now. In Class 1A, not a ton of moves except for Georgiana and Berry-Fayette moving up after big wins and Decatur Heritage slipping after a loss.
