Daily List: Teams that exceeded expectations, according to Maxwell

Football, listWhich teams made the most progress this season? The Maxwell Ratings provide a glimpse. These rankings compare each team’s preseason power rating, which is based on the recent history of scores, to the team’s final 2016 power rating. According to Maxwell, Tattnall Square of Macon, under first-year coach Chance Jones, was the state’s most unexpectedly good team at 47.3 points better than projected. If that sounds like a lot, compare the Trojans’ 2016 scores to those from 2015. Good work, Coach Jones, and to all whose teams made these lists.
