Archer upsets top ranked Grayson in defensive battle to knock the Rams from the No. 1 spot in 7A. 

Archer fans will remember Homecoming 2017 for years to come after the Archer Tigers (7-0) defeated the Grayson Rams (6-1), the top ranked team in AAAAAAA in the state, in a defensive battle, 6-3. The win was the first ever for Archer over a No. 1 ranked team in the school’s history, and ended the Grayson 20-game win streak.

The loss also knocked the Rams out of the top spot while the victory...

moved the Tigers from No. 4 to No. 2 in the state’s top classification in the newly released Georgia High School Football Daily (GHSFD) AAAAAAA ranking.

The October 16 ranking still includes five Gwinnett County teams, including three of the top five, but the top spot now belongs to Lowndes County (8-0). Archer jumped to No. 2 while Grayson fell to No. 4. Spots 5-7 remained the same with North Gwinnett (6-1), Brookwood (5-2), and Mill Creek (6-2) all earning wins.

In addition to Lowndes County (No.1), Walton (7-0), Colquitt County (7-1), South Forsyth (7-0), and Tift County (7-1) appear in the GHSFD ranking with the Raiders at No. 3, the Packers at No. 6, South moving in to the Top 10 at No. 9, and Tift falling a notch to No. 10.

In addition to the AAAAAAA showing, Gwinnett County continues to be represented in AAAAA (Buford 5-1, No. 2) and AAA (GAC 7-1, No.3) near the top.
