Archer CL 10 13 17 1

Archer cheerleaders and fans can cheer about the Tigers improving to 8-0 to maintain the No.2 spot in the most recent 7A ranking.

The Georgia High School Football Daily (GHSFD) October 23 AAAAAAA Top 10 again includes five Gwinnett County teams after Archer (No.2), Grayson (No.4), North Gwinnett (No.5), and Brookwood (No.7) all won and maintained their position while Mill Creek (No.10) fell two notches after a tough loss to Mountain View, but remained in the ranking.

Archer (8-0), Grayson (7-1) and North Gwinnett (7-1) all won by big margins 

with the Tigers winning by 55 over Rockdale County (58-3), the Rams downing Newton by 25 (41-16), and the Bulldogs beating Peachtree Ridge by 36 (44-8). The Broncos (6-2) came away with a three-point victory (30-27) against Parkview to hold on to their slot.

The Hawks (6-3) loss to the Bears came on a last second field goal and gives Mill Creek three losses on the season, the most of any of the teams in the ranking. The fact that two of the losses came against Archer and North Gwinnett kept Mill Creek  in ranking, but another loss along the way would likely knock the Hawks out of the ranking.
