These rankings do not reflect whether one team is better than another in a head-to-head matchup. They only show our opinion of how well each team is playing in comparison to others in the area. So here they are:

1. Zion Chapel (4-1 Overall, 2-1 Region)

The Rebels picked up another big victory over Kinston, 12-6.

While Zion Chapel were slowed offensively, their defence stepped up to the challenge in preserving the win.

2. Goshen (3-2, 2-1)

After starting 0-2, the Eagles look to all but lock up a playoff berth with a win over Calhoun this week.

3. CHHS (2-3, 2-1)

Charles Henderson lost another tough one, this time one the road to Greenville. The Trojans have lost their three games this season by a combined 11 points.

4. Pike Liberal Arts (3-2, 1-2)

Pike looked to be hitting on all cylinders in a 45-20 win over Hooper last week. Prattville Christian comes to Troy to tangle with the Patriots in a rematch of the 2010 AISA first round playoffs. Pike won, 34-16.

5. Pike County (0-5, 0-3)

Pike County will face another tough challenge as they look for their first win of 2011. The Bulldogs travel to Opp, who is 3-2 this season.
