After three weeks of the high school football season, there are a few things we know:
— Greenwood just might be the best team in the state even though it’s not in the largest classification.
— The Cabot Panthers are back. Cabot is off to a great start and now belongs in the overall Top 10 and the Top 5 of Class 7A.
— Fayetteville, Bentonville, Springdale Har-Ber and Fort Smith Southside will beat up on each other, but one of those teams could well emerge as the champion in Class 7A in December at War Memorial Stadium.
— Camden Fairview and Pulaski Academy are the class of Class 5A. Which team is best? Flip a coin.
— With easy wins over two Class 6A schools and one Class 5A school, Arkadelphia now deserves to be in the overall Top 10 even though it’s a 4A school. The Badgers’ game against Nashville this Friday is one of the top games in the state.
— It’s hard to choose between Charleston, Harding Academy and Barton in Class 3A. Any of those teams could win a state title.
— Junction City beat Bearden, 13-8, on Friday night. But Bearden could still find its way to the championship game. Gurdon, Carlisle and East Poinsett County also appear to be teams that are capable of winning a Class 2A state title.
Here are the rankings:

Class 3A you might want to give the Melbourne Bearkatz a second and third look…! They beat Salem,Palestine,Cave City, and Batesville South Side so far.
Few in numbers but if we can keep everyone healthy we should make a pretty good run at state.
Not sure why nobody is giving us the love yet at 3-0 but very soon this will change.
