Here’s a look at how our Top 5’s fared in Week 5. There’s sure to be a shake up in the rankings on Sunday as three Top 10 public schools went down.
(Note: Charlton County lost to the No. 7 team in AA, Fitzgerald, so it would be tough to penalize them for that.)
1. Wilcox County (2-1, No. 2 overall). Off this week. Next: Friday at No. 9 Charlton County (2-2).
2. Wilkinson County (1-2, No. 4 overall). The Warriors lost 41-34 to Irwin County (2-2). Next: Friday at Georgia Military (3-0).
3. Marion County (2-1, No. 7 overall). The Eagles lost to Miller County (3-1), 20-7. Rod Williams (8 yards) and Jacolby Jones (25 yards) had rushing touchdowns for Miller County, and Marvin Grant scored on a 40-yard pass from Algin Merritt. The Pirates’ defense held Marion to 112 yards total offense. Next: Friday vs. Greenville (2-1).
4. Lincoln County (2-1, No. 8 overall). Off this week. Next: Friday at First Presbyterian Day (2-1).
