The Franchise Prep Football Top 10-Week Three

The Franchise Prep Football Top 10-Week Three

We are three weeks into the high school football season and things are starting to take shape.  Some teams are exactly who we thought that they were going to be. Others, not so much. With that said lets take a look at the latest edition of The Franchise Prep Football Top 10.

6A-I

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

The big mover this week is Jenks, who jumps from #4 to #2 by way of their 27-10 victory over Tulsa Union.  That loss drops Union to 1-2 on season, the same record as defending State Champion Owasso.  Each team lost convincingly to Broken Arrow further solidifying the Tigers status as the best football team in the state. West side schools make up the rest of the poll but they all have a ways to go before we can consider the possibility of them knocking off any of the top four teams.

6A-II

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

Stillwater’s 44-21 deconstruction of Norman North was enough to bump the Pioneers this week from #3 to #2. Midwest City beat #8 Muskogee 16-14 last week but based on what we have seen so far this season it really does feel like Stillwater is the better team in 6A-II.  They will get a chance to prove that on September 28th when they travel to Midwest City to face the Bombers.

5A

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

The top six in 5A stay the same but Tahlequah and Guthrie make their first appearances of the season. Guthrie has three wins this season over 6A schools while Tahlequah knocked Coweta out of the top ten with their 47-37 victory last week.

4A

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

Very little change this week in 4A outside of Weatherford dropping two spots to #6 following their 21-10 loss at Piedmont. The Eagles loss bumps Tuttle up to #4 right next to their Tri-City neighbor Blanchard.  These two teams are heading for a showdown on October 18th what could end up being the district title.

3A

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

Top Ranked Heritage Hall bounced back from their season opening loss to Millwood by going on the road and up a class to knock off perennial power Clinton to solidity their spot at the top of the charts. The Chargers are only three weeks away from a one versus two clash with John Marhsall. Plainview drops one spot following their 34-19 loss to 4A’s #4 Tuttle.

2A

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

Adair drops from five to eight following their 59-16 loss to Locust Grove. Metro Christian moves into the top ten for the first time following their win over OCS.  That win coming after the Patriots Zero Week victory over 4A’s 8th ranked Broken Bow puts them at #9 in 2A this week.

A

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

A lot of movement this week in Class A.  Minco drops from #3 to #8 following their 14-6 OT loss to Crossings Christian.  The Bulldogs have been the walking wounded since their zero week victory over Wynnewood and it caught up with them this week. Rejoice Christian, who handed Crossings their only loss in week one jumps from seven to three this week. Crossings enters the top ten at #7 following their victory over the Bulldogs.  #6 Crescent is at #5 Cashion this week. The Tigers were embarrassed in week one by #2 Morrison 43-12 but a win over the Wildcats would put them right back into title contention a year after losing in the state finals.

B

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

Not a lot of movement in Class B this week.  #7 Wetumka drops one spots after running into a buzzsaw known as #3 Davenport last week. The Cheiftains were no match for the Bulldogs falling at home 62-14. Snyder enters the top ten at #10. The Cyclones have started the season at 3-0 for the first time since the 2008 team started the season 9-0. This is Snyder’s third season playing 8-man football. After going 2-8 their first year the made the playoffs last season and finished 8-4. Through three games this season the Cyclones have outscored their opponents 174-8.

C

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

Movement all over the place this week in Class C as only four teams remain where they were a week ago.  Southwest Covenant in Yukon has outscored their first two opponents 105-8 and they jump to #3. Coyle falls from three to six following their 30-12 loss to Yale. Mountain View-Gotebo makes their first appearance in the Top 10 this season after knocking off Cyril 44-8 to improve to 2-1 on the season.
