Musical chairs at the top of 4A could be preview of wide open football playoffs
Here are top five in this week’s SportsDay 4A area football rankings:
1. Frisco Centennial
3. West Mesquite
4. (tie) Denton Guyer
4. (tie) Highland Park
Guyer started the season at No. 1, West Mesquite was No. 1 last week and now it’s Centennial. Musical chairs at the top.
It could be that way in 4A all season, and not just locally. There are some promising looking teams across the state — Pearland Dawson, Aledo, Leander, Sherman, Tyler John Tyler, etc. — but will one be a big favorite entering the playoffs?
With Lake Travis moving up to 5A, 4A Division I and Division II could be wide open.
Since 2007, only two teams other than Lake Travis (five straight titles) and Aledo (three) have won 4A titles. Lamar Consolidated in 2007 and Sulphur Springs in 2008.
