Rex’s Rankings: After seven weeks

There are only three weeks remaining in the regular season in high school football in Arkansas.

What do we know?

In Class 7A, four schools — Fayetteville, North Little Rock, Springdale Har-Ber and Bentonville — appear to have legitimate shots at winning the state championship. It will just depend on who gets hot at the right time.

In Class 6A, Greenwood is a clear favorite, but Pine Bluff, West Memphis or Jonesboro have the talent to pull an upset if the Bulldogs have a bad night.

In Class 5A, it’s Pulaski Academy, Wynne and then everybody else.

In Class 4A, three of the four best teams — Nashville, Robinson and Ashdown — all┬ácome from the same conference.

Again depending on who gets hot at the right time, I can see any of the Top 5 in Class 3A — Prescott, Charleston, Glen Rose, Bald Knob or Newport — making a run to the title.

England remains the favorite in Class 2A, but Danville, Mount Ida and Hector have the talent to challenge for a championship.
