Six Texoma Football Teams in State Top 10's

Six Texoma football teams were ranked in the Top 10 in either the AP Texas HS Football Poll or the computer rankings at the start of Week Two.

In the AP poll, the Graham Steers were Texoma's only top-10 team, moving up one spot to number-7 in the Class 3A ranking after a blowout win over Brownwood. The Steers also garnered a first-place vote in the statewide poll.

In Class 4A, the Rider Raiders fell from #8 to the 'receiving votes' category, getting just 3 votes after a 42-10 loss to Denton Ryan. District rival Denton Guyer remained number three.

In Class 1A, Munday is no longer receiving votes after a 61-7 loss at Stamford, in which they played without star L.J. Collier. The Windthorst Trojans continued to receive votes, with a total of 3 despite their loss to Holliday.

In the "Dave Campbell's Texas Football" magazine rankings, Rider was #11 in Class 4A, down from #8. Graham moved up one spot from 8th to 7th, while no Texoma teams were ranked in Class 2A or 1A. Graham will face Abilene Wylie on Friday, who "DCTF" has ranked 11th.

In the 6-Man game, two Texoma teams moved up to #1 this week after big wins.

The Throckmorton Greyhounds scheduled their game against Santa Anna just last Monday, and rolled 60-13 to reclaim the #1 spot in UIL Division I from Valley.

They will face TAPPS D-I's top-ranked Dallas The Covenant on the road Friday. The Covenant is the only team to defeat the Greyhounds in the past two seasons.

In TAPPS Division II, Notre Dame's season-opening win over Bryson was enough to jump them past Rockwall-Heath Fulton into the #1 spot. Fulton will visit Wichita Christian on Friday.

Back in UIL D-I, the Crowell Wildcats used a 50-0 win at Guthrie to move up a spot to #7, while Knox City remained at #10 following a win over Rotan.

In UIL Division II, Newcastle remained #4 despite a win over TAPPS Division I power Abilene Christian, who was also unchanged at #3.

"Texas Football" has Throckmorton (#1), Crowell (#4) and Knox City (#8) in their D-I Top 10, but does not have Newcastle in their D-II ranking.

Notre Dame is #4 in the magazine's combined "Private 6-Man" ranking.
