Every week during the 2020 football season, SBLive Arkansas will rank the top high school football teams in every classification.
Here are the 4A rankings as compiled by SBLive reporters Connor Morrissette and Lance Smith.
SBLIVE 4A FOOTBALL POWER RANKINGS
Sept. 9, 2020
1. Robinson (1-1)
The reigning 4A champs showed poise and grit in a 28-20 victory last week over Maumelle. Obtaining a winning record should be well within grasp this week, but Marion is much more dangerous a foe than their 0-2 record would indicate.
2. Shiloh Christian (2-0)
After a close win against Poteau (Oklahoma) last week, the Saints have two weeks off.
3. Arkadelphia (2-0)
The Badgers are 2-0 and surging. They cruised past Hot Springs last week and will be favored again this week against Greenbrier.
4. Ozark (0-1)
How much can you really make of Ozark’s one-point loss against Booneville? Booneville came into the season substantially underrated by almost everybody, and got a big-time victory against Dardanelle before playing the Hillbillies. Meanwhile, last week’s game was Ozark’s season debut. Ozark should get in the win column this week against Clarksville, but beating the Panthers is far from a guarantee.
5. Nashville (1-1)
After getting blown out in their season-opener against an elite Pleasant Grove (Texas) squad, the Scrappers got in the win column last week against Hope. They’ll be heavily favored this week against De Queen.
