Poll Talk: Griffin, Calvary Day upset; high class Top 10 goes 10-0

Georgia’s ranked football teams went 60-8 last week, and only two of the losses were real upsets. That made for an uneventful reshaping of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution high school football rankings at the midpoint of the regular season.

No. 8 Griffin of Class AAAAA lost to unranked Whitewater 40-16, and No. 5 Calvary Day of the Class A private division lost to unranked Aquinas 9-3. Griffin and Calvary dropped from the rankings.

The other six ranked teams that lost – Coffee, Hughes, Allatoona, Cedartown, Westminster and Turner County – were beaten by higher-ranked or higher-classification teams. Some remained in the rankings; some did not.

New to the rankings this week are Stephenson, Bainbridge, Troup, Pace Academy, Trion and Darlington.

The Top 10 in the highest classification went 10-0 last week, and none unimpressively. That conspired to keep out deserving South Forsyth (5-0), which defeated Lassiter 37-20 Friday in a game between unranked 4-0 teams. Meadowcreek (5-0) and North Paulding (5-0) also are unbeaten but unranked in AAAAAAA.
