Rex’s Rankings: After one week

I love the first week of the high school football season.

There are games on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday nights. Some high school teams get to open the season in college stadiums. There are doubleheaders.

Perhaps the most impressive performance in Week 1 belonged to Springdale Har-Ber, which destroyed Fort Smith Southside by a final score of 47-0 and moved up a couple of spots in the overall rankings.

At War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock, more than 30,000 people turned out to see Bryant continue to dominate the series known as the Salt Bowl.

Pulaski Academy started as it usually does, by beating a team from another state.

The best game of the week might have been Cabot 28, Pine Bluff 27. Both teams are ranked.
