Heading into Week 5 of the prep football season, it’s extremely difficult to ascertain who the real powers are in each classification with a few exceptions, and also to wait and see if some of those teams which are currently rolling merrily along as undefeated can maintain that status. Week 4 had some surprises, but the GPB-TV sports Top Ten will have few changes this week.
Class 7A power Archer rolled past Mill Creek, 42-0. The Sequoyah Chiefs surprised perennial 6A power Dalton, 42-14. Other finals saw Mary Persons beat Lovett, 58-21, Rabun County top Stephens County 41-14; 7A Camden County defeated 6A Richmond Hill 33-6, and Blessed Trinity cruised by 3A power Benedictine Military, 38-7.
As far as some of the surprise teams which are rolling along undefeated at this point in the season other than Sequoyah, one would be remiss if the Denmark Danes were not mentioned for beginning their initial season 3-0 after a narrow 7-3 victory over Forsyth Central last week.
There is also Claxton from Region 3A East at 3-0 on the season after topping class 2A Toombs County on the road last Friday night, 21-14. The Tigers have now beaten 3A Tattnall County, 2A Bryan County and now 2A Toombs County on consecutive weeks to open the season.
