There was little movement in our latest Power Rankings, at least in the top five. That elite group is 27-2 overall in 2018!
#1 RABUN COUNTY WILDCATS
PREVIOUS RANKING: #1
REASON(S): The Cats score at will…as evidence by a 68-7 win over Banks that actually could have easily been 82-7 had Rabun not been stopped on two red zone trips.
#2 DAWSON COUNTY TIGERS
PREVIOUS RANKING: #2
REASON(S): 64-0 blanking over the latest victim…if you were wondering if the Tigers are for real, quit wondering. Showdown with powerhouse GAC upcoming, and we’re picking our Tigers!
#3 JEFFERSON DRAGONS
PREVIOUS RANKING: #3
REASON(S): A nail-biting last second win over Franklin, but we await word on Colby Clark’s injury.
#4 UNION COUNTY PANTHERS
PREVIOUS RANKING: #5
REASON(S): A last minute win over #10 Elbert surely propels Union into the state rankings (finally!). This team has a top-five offense and defense.
#5 COMMERCE TIGERS
PREVIOUS RANKING: #4
REASON(S): Commerce had its final bye week in Week 6, and the Tigers have a shot to go undefeated in the regular season.
#6 STEPHENS COUNTY INDIANS
PREVIOUS RANKING: #6
REASON(S): Stephens has back-to-back bye weeks before region play begins.
#7 HABERSHAM CENTRAL RAIDERS
PREVIOUS RANKING: #7
REASON(S): A second straight loss, this time to Lanier, means Habersham is getting anxious for the Gainesville game next week. Will former Red Elephant Tre Luttrell dominate his former team?
#8 BANKS COUNTY LEOPARDS
PREVIOUS RANKING: #8
REASON(S): The Leopards took a beating, but it was #3 Rabun. The guys get a breather before then having to face Union in Week 8.
#9 WHITE COUNTY WARRIORS
PREVIOUS RANKING: #9
REASON(S): One of the toughest schedules in the area, White County now has five straight losses. It finally gets a break before going back to the grind.
#10 LUMPKIN COUNTY INDIANS
PREVIOUS RANKING: #10
REASON(S): Lumpkin had a bye week, and next takes on Cherokee Bluff in Week 7 against former Indians coach Tommy Jones.
#11 TOWNS COUNTY INDIANS
PREVIOUS RANKING: #11
REASON(S): The Indians dropped a disappointing one to Riverside in a game that favored Towns.
