Austin Ranked #1 for First Time in 50 Seasons

It was 1968 the last time the Austin Black Bears had a number one ranking.  But the ASWA lofted them to the top spot in the 6A rankings after Ramsay’s loss last week.  The only unanimous selection this week was 1A powerhouse Maplesville. Briarwood took over the #1 spot after Beauregard’s loss and UMS Wright became top Bulldog in 4A following Handley’s defeat.  Here are the complete polls:
