Every week during the 2020 football season, SBLive Arkansas will rank the top high school football teams in every classification.
Here are the 6A rankings as compiled by SBLive reporters Connor Morrissette and Lance Smith.
SBLIVE 6A FOOTBALL POWER RANKINGS
Sept. 1, 2020
1. Benton (0-1)
Getting pounded by the best team in the state, Bryant, isn’t a death sentence for any team’s playoff chances. Nor does it warrant a drop in the rankings for Benton. That said, the Panthers need to regroup in a hurry to be ready for Little Rock Catholic.
2. Jonesboro (1-0)
It took a couple quarters to kick into high gear, but the Hurricane made it rain in the fourth quarter to beat Catholic 28-24. The QB/WR tandem of Cross Jumper and Will Barré is clearly one of the most dangerous ones in Arkansas.
3. Parkview (0-0)
Parkview football games are still over a week away, but a big-time showdown on Sep. 10 against White Hall will make the wait worth it.
4. West Memphis (0-0)
The Blue Devils will have their hands full this week opening up against Wynne, who last week got a statement win over Marion.
5. Lake Hamilton (1-0)
It’s a bye-week for Lake Hamilton after they started off the season with a strong 31-17 victory over Lakeside.
