Texoma high school football power rankings: Week 7

Posted:

Note: these rankings are solely based on how well a team is playing. For example, a Class 4A team would more than likely handle any Class A team no matter records.

10. Whitesboro Bearcats: 5-1, (2-0) - 255 PF, 75 PA

Eddie Gill's boys are having a dream season, racing their way to a 5-1 mark before heading into last week's bye. Look for them to take 5-2A and make a deep playoff run.

9. Lone Grove Longhorns 5-1, (3-0) - 276 PF, 137 PA

The Longhorns are one of the most pleasant surprises of 2013. This is Jeremy Turner's first year as a head football coach, but his leadership skills are obvious. Since losing in Week 1 to Marlow, they haven't lost. Their 3-0 district record has them tied a top the 3A-4 standings.

8. Ada Cougars 5-1, (3-0) - 239 PF, 137 PA

It looked like the 2013 Cougars would never live up to the '12 state semifinalists when they'd lose their "Battle of the Cats" rivalry game in Week 1. Since that bitter defeat all the way back in September, they've steam rolled their way through the competition getting them back into the Class 4A top five and the title conversation.

7. Davis Wolves 6-0, (3-0) - 270 PF, 94 PA

It's hard to rank the Davis Wolves this low. After all, they are undefeated, and marquee wins over Ringling and Heritage Hall should have them in our top five, but there's just too much noise being made elsewhere.

6. Ardmore Tigers 5-1, (3-0) - 158 PF, 57 PA

Fifty-seven points against. That is what Doug Wendel's defense has allowed this season. Save a 9-7 loss in Week 2 to the visiting Durant Lions team, these Tigers have been one of the most stingy in the Sooner State. They were just cubs last season, earning their stripes quickly. Any opponent taking a team that just went into Duncan and shut out an above average Demon team lightly is in for a rude awakening.

5. Ringling Blue Devils 4-1, (3-0) - 200 PF, 34 PA

Tracy Gandy's defending Class A champs have one of the most stifling defense around holding teams to less than seven points a game. They did suffer a six point loss in Week 2 to Class 2A runner-up Davis, but haven't allowed a point since beating their last four opponents a total of 172-0. Not too shabby.

4. Denison Yellow Jackets 4-2, (3-0) - 196 PF, 163 PA

Forget the first two games of the season, the Denison Yellow Jackets haven't lost in five weeks, got the Ax back for the first time since 2009, and are in sole possession of the top spot in District 13-4A. How has Chad Rogers done it? By finding and identity running the ball. This team can run over anybody with their huge offensive line and capable backs. There's still more than half of district play left, but expect them to snap their playoff drought this season.

3. S&S Rams 6-0, (1-0) - 237 PF, 99 PA

The S&S Rams are one of the biggest stories this fall as they've raced out to a 6-0 record, their best in close to half a century. They're now primed for their first postseason berth in 15 years and have a great shot at making it 8-0 as they play teams with a combined 1-11 record the next two weeks. That'll set up a Week 9 showdown against Gunter, which will likely be for the 2A-7 title.

2. Dickson Comets 6-0, (3-0) - 194 PF, 76 PA

How good are Jeremy Reed's Comets? Just the best team in Dickson history. Chris Bamberg and company's 6-0 mark has never been met and they plan on building on it. They just downed Madill for the first time in seven years last Friday and are tied with Lone Grove and Plainview for the 3A-4 top spot. Remember, this team was 1-8 just three falls ago.

1. Plainview Indians 6-0, (3-0) - 250 PF, 47 PA

This is almost a no-brainer at No. 1. These guys are incredible. The Indians came into the season with several question marks, but quickly answered all of them with a road win over 3A power Tuttle. That win gave them all the momentum they needed. They almost look unbeatable, holding teams to just eight points a game while scoring more than 42. Every time it seems they'll be tested, they've responded.
