Stephenson’s 20-0 victory over M.L. King in a nationally televised game between unbeaten teams in Region 2-AAAAA earned the Jaguars a national ranking.
The RivalsHigh 100 put Stephenson at No. 81 and ejected Peachtree Ridge, which had been No. 77, from the rankings. Ironically, Peachtree Ridge also was coming off its best victory of the season, a 21-7 decision against previously unbeaten Collins Hill.
Other Georgia teams remained fairly stable in the rankings. Northside entered the MaxPreps Xcellent 25 at No. 24 while Lowndes dropped out.
