Class AA blog: Shake up in the top 10

With another week of football in the books, Class AA still isn’t quite taking to shape but there has been another mix-up in the top 10.

The top four, however, remained in tact. No. 1 Calhoun easily disposed of what was once a north Georgia power, Dalton, shutting out the Catamounts’ offense in a 17-2 win; No. 2 Lamar County kept pace with a 28-7 win over Eagle’s Landing; No. 3 Jefferson posted a second consecutive shut out with a 49-0 win over Jackson County; No. 4 GAC blew out Apalachee, 56-14.

Is this the year Lamar County gets to the championship game?

The shakeup takes place beginning at No. 5, with the Brooks County Trojans falling to AAAAAA’s Valdosta in a surprising 50-20 blowout. The Trojans remain in the top 10, falling to No. 8. They were replaced at 5 by the Lovett Lions, who benefited from a bye. The Washington-Wilkes Tigers made the week’s biggest jump, moving three spots to No. 6 with a 28-14 win over A No. 3 Lincoln County. The Tigers, rewarded for the quality of opponent, leapfrogged the Vidalia Indians, who remained at No. 7 after beating McIntosh County Academy, 35-7.

Benedictine continues its impressive start to the season and jumps a spot to No. 9 after a 49-0 win over Long County. New to the top 10 is Thomasville after a 56-6 win over Stewart County.

Losses to bigger (and well heeled) programs should be taken with a grain of salt. They should help your ranking if you win, but should not hurt much if you lose. You have to play tough teams to find your weaknesses. Still it is subjective to history.

Adam – What’s your opinion? Is Coach Pruitt’s two year absence from Fitzgerald’s program primarily responsible for their drop in prominence in AA?
