The Franchise Prep Football Top 10 – Week Four

The Franchise Prep Football Top 10 – Week Four

There are no major jumps this week, however we do see a couple of new number one teams across the state.  So let’s get into the newest edition of The Franchise Prep Football Top 10.

 

6A-I

  1. Broken Arrow (1) 3-0
  2. Jenks (2) 3-0
  3. Tulsa Union (3) 1-2
  4. Owasso (4) 1-2
  5. Edmond Santa Fe (5) 3-0
  6. Yukon (7) 3-0
  7. Putnam City North (8) 3-0
  8. Mustang (UR) 1-2
  9. Westmoore (6) 2-1
  10. Moore (UR) 1-2

 

The top four teams in the state’s biggest class were all on byes last week so there is not much movement at the top. Mustang finds themselves back in the Top 10 after knocking off previously 6th ranked Westmoore who falls to nine with the loss.  Moore makes its season debut at number 10 courtesy of their 14-7 win over Norman, which knocked the Tigers out of the Top 10.

 

6A-II

  1. Tulsa Washington (1) 1-2
  2. Stillwater (2) 3-0
  3. Midwest City (3) 2-1
  4. Bixby (4) 2-1
  5. Del City (5) 2-1
  6. Lawton (6) 2-1
  7. Muskogee (8) 2-1
  8. Sapulpa (10) 3-0
  9. Choctaw (7) 2-1
  10. Sand Springs (9) 1-2

 

No new teams in 6A-II this week but there is some movement in the bottom half.  Choctaw falls two spots to #9 following their 46-21 loss to PC North, the 7th ranked team in 6A-I. After winning only five games in the last four seasons, Sapulpa moves up to #8 following their 49-12 victory over Tulsa East Central.  This is the first time the Chieftans have started a season 3-0 since 2014 when they started 4-0 en route to their last playoff appearance.

 

5A

  1. Carl Albert (1) 3-0
  2. Ardmore (2) 3-0
  3. Skiatook (3) 3-0
  4. Collinsville (4) 3-0
  5. Altus (5) 3-0
  6. Bishop McGuinness (6) 2-1
  7. Tahlequah (7) 3-0
  8. Bishop Kelley (8) 1-2
  9. Guthrie (9) 3-0
  10. Duncan (UR) 3-0

 

5A is completely unchanged this week with the exception of the new team coming in at #10, Duncan. The Demons moved to 3-0 following their 17-3 victory over Ada. This is the first time that Duncan started the season 3-0 since 1997 when they started the season 8-0 and went all the way to the state semi-finals before falling to Carl Albert. The Demons will try to move to 4-0 this week when they host 2-1 Noble.

4A

  1. Wagoner (2) 3-0
  2. Poteau (1) 3-0
  3. Blanchard (3) 3-0
  4. Tuttle (4) 3-0
  5. Catoosa (5) 3-0
  6. Bethany (7) 3-0
  7. Broken Bow (8) 2-1
  8. Weatherford (6) 2-1
  9. Hilldale (9) 3-0
  10. Bristow (10) 3-0

 

There is a new top ranked team in 4A this week with Wagoner ascending to the top spot. The Bulldogs knocked off Fort Gibson in lieu of their huge match up this week with 5th ranked Catoosa. Poteau meanwhile was on bye this week.  These teams are very even right now so don’t be surprised to see them switch weekly just based on performance until we see something that separates them.

 

3A

  1. Heritage Hall (1) 2-1
  2. John Marshall (2) 3-0
  3. Lincoln Christian (3) 3-0
  4. Kingfisher (4) 1-2
  5. Berryhill (5) 3-0
  6. Plainview (6) 2-1
  7. Seminole (8) 3-0
  8. Cascia Hall (7) 2-1
  9. Sulphur (9) 2-1
  10. Stigler (UR) 3-0

 

Kingfisher might look out of place as the 4th ranked team in 3A with their 1-2 record.  However when you look and see that those two loses are to Tuttle and Bethany, the 4th and 6th ranked teams in 4A respectively, you start to see just how good the Yellowjackets are.  That schedule does not get any easier though as they still have to face Heritage Hall and John Marshall before the season is over.  With that non-conference schedule, they should be ready.

 

2A

  1. Millwood (1) 3-0
  2. Vian (2) 2-1
  3. Beggs (3) 2-1
  4. Jones (4) 2-1
  5. Alva (5) 3-0
  6. Sperry (6) 3-0
  7. Victory Christian (7) 3-0
  8. Metro Christian (9) 3-0
  9. Adair (8) 2-1
  10. Washington (UR) 2-1

 

If you were curious whether or not Millwood was the team to beat in Class 2A and their victory over 3A’s #1 Heritage Hall was not enough…maybe this will convince you.  The Falcons blew out Cascia Hall, the #8 ranked team in 3A 38-7.  At this point it is starting to seem like the question is not who can beat Millwood in 2A as much as it is who can stay within two touchdowns.

 

A

  1. Hooker (1) 3-0
  2. Morrison (2) 4-0
  3. Rejoice Christian (3) 3-0
  4. Cashion (5) 4-0
  5. Thomas (4) 2-1
  6. Crossings Christian (7) 3-1
  7. Minco (8) 3-1
  8. Wynnewood (9) 2-1
  9. Ringling (UR) 3-0
  10. Hominy (UR) 2-1

 

Cashion moves up to #4 this week by way of their 41-6 victory over defending state runner up Crescent.  That loss was Crescent’s second of the season and knocked the Tigers out of the Top 10 along with Commerce.  Taking their place is Ringling at #9 and Hominy at #10. Hominy won the state title in Class A in 2016 and their only loss this season was to Cleveland in 4A. Ringling won nine games in the regular season a year ago and are undefeated through their first three games this season.

 

B

  1. Shattuck (1) 3-0
  2. Davenport (3) 3-0
  3. Regent Prep (2) 2-0
  4. Alex (4) 2-1
  5. Laverne (5) 2-1
  6. Dewar (6) 3-0
  7. Snyder (10) 4-0
  8. Prue (9) 3-1
  9. Seiling (UR) 4-0
  10. Wetumka (7) 1-2

 

Davenport jumps from three to two this week by way of their 80-58 victory over #4 Alex. Scoring 80 points on one of the best teams in the state typically would catapult you to the top as well.  However when that top team is Shattuck who has won two of the last three state titles and only lost four games the entire time, they are very hard to unseat.

 

C

  1. Pond Creek-Hunter (2) 3-0
  2. Tipton (1) 1-2
  3. Southwest Covenant (3) 3-0
  4. Tyrone (4) 2-0
  5. Buffalo (5) 3-0
  6. Coyle (6) 2-1
  7. Covington-Douglas (7) 3-1
  8. Mountain View-Gotebo (10) 2-1
  9. Bluejacket (9) 2-1
  10. Paoli (UR) 3-1

 

Tipton falls from the top spot for the first time this year to number two.  Why is a team with two losses still ranked second in the state you ask?  Well, it is because both of those losses have come at the hands of ranked teams in Class B.  Shattuck and Snyder are the only teams to beat Tipton this year. Also, Tipton has played for a state title in six of the last seven years winning four of them.  So even at their worst they still get the benefit of the doubt.
