Rex’s Rankings (high school football, that is)

I love high school football.

Always have.

As much as I enjoy running my mouth (insert your snide comments here), I’m probably getting too old to be live on the radio until midnight. I get sleepy.

But, the good Lord willing, I’ll be in the KARN-FM studios in west Little Rock each of the next 10 Friday nights (through the first two weeks of the playoffs) doing a scoreboard show with Grant Merrill and Nate Olson.

The program can be heard on more than 50 stations statewide each Friday from 10 p.m. until midnight.

We have fun, and if you like high school football as much as I do, I think you’ll have fun listening.

One of the things I do in the second hour each week is release my rankings for the Top 10 overall and the Top 5 in each of the six classifications.

It’s the first ranking in the state since it comes out on Friday nights immediately after the games are played.

I’m going to include what we call Rex’s Rankings on the Southern Fried blog each week for those of you who would like to check it out.
