Among the 6A, 5A, 4A and Private School rankings released at the beginning of the season, all of the top teams came out unscathed from a wild and eye-opening Week 1.
Only one of the four groups has the same 10 teams in place but no ranking is unchanged after the first week.
6A Top 10: Week 2
Duncanville and Allen survived tough matchups in Week 1 to remain in the top 2 spots from the preseason polls. Denton Guyer leapfrogs up to the No. 3 spot after taking down reigning 5A state champ Aledo.
|3. Denton Guyer||1-0||5|
|4. Southlake Carroll||1-0||3|
|5. Cedar Hill||0-1||5|
|8. Euless Trinity||1-0||8|
This probably should have been published yesterday, but better late than never, right? Each week, on top of the bigger DFW football breakdowns that will be published, we'll predict 24 notable games based on highly scientific research methodologies.
Or off gut instinct. Or flip a coin. Throw darts a board. Whatever strikes our fancy is how we'll handle this.
But since we missed yesterday's notable games - listed here - we'll only have 20 this week, which includes the longer breakdown predictions. And for full disclosure, the four teams that won in our list from Thursday - Flower Mound (over Keller Fossil Ridge); Arlington Bowie (over Flower Mound Marcus); McKinney Boyd (over Garland Naaman Forest); Prestonwood Christian (over Wylie) - would have been totally picked to win beforehand. Scouts honor.
All jokes aside, here are this week's projects. And including Thursday's matchup between Plano West and Frisco Reedy, we're off to a good start at 1-0.
