Rex’s Rankings: After three weeks

The most pleasant surprise of the high school football season thus far has been Fort Smith Northside, which is off to its first 3-0 start since 2006.

It’s not often that you see a Greenwood team whipped.

But Northside did just that on Friday night with a 42-17 victory over the Bulldogs at Mayo-Thompson Stadium. Northside, which had last defeated Greenwood in 2001, ended the Bulldogs’ streak of 38 consecutive regular-season victories.

We move Northside up to No. 3 overall, just in time for this week’s game at No. 1 Fayetteville.

The Purple Dogs will be favored, but this will be a test to see just how far Mike Falleur’s Grizzlies have come.

I do know this: It’s good to see a traditional powerhouse like Northside relevant once again.
