Daily List: Teams that have been out of the Top 10 the longest

Jenkins of Savannah is ranked in the AJC football rankings for the first time since 1970. The Warriors were ranked in three GSWA polls last season during a 10-2 finish but didn’t crack the AJC Top 10. Only eight schools had been out of the AJC Top 10 rankings longer. Albany, last ranked in 1967, closed this year. Jenkins is at least the fifth school in the past four seasons to break droughts of 40 years. Others include Liberty County (1971), Pickens (1971), Mount Zion of Carroll County (1973) and Harris County (1962). Here are the longest current droughts.
