Rex’s Rankings: Nearing the end

There were some big games (and some big surprises) in the second round of the high school football playoffs.

Conway dropped out of the Top 10 following a 31-17 loss to Bentonville West.

Bentonville also dropped out of the Top 10 following a 30-17 loss to Fort Smith Northside.

And Fayetteville dropped out of the Top 10 after a 28-25 loss to Bryant.

These will be our final rankings of the season. Once we’re this deep into the playoffs, it’s time to let the teams do all the talking on the field. It also doesn’t make sense to rank teams who are no longer playing.

Here are the updated rankings as we near one of my favorite times of the year — those two weekends of state championship games at War Memorial Stadium:


  1. North Little Rock

  2. Greenwood

  3. Bryant

  4. West Memphis

  5. Pulaski Academy

  6. Bentonville West

  7. Fort Smith Northside

  9. Little Rock Christian

  10. Joe T. Robinson
