Week 5 Football Rankings
There isn’t a lot of change in the latest edition of prep football rankings in the state.
So little change, in fact, that only 1 team is in the rankings that wasn’t a week ago. Cheyenne Central is back in the 4A ranks at #5 pushing Kelly Walsh out. Natrona stays #1 with 17 of the 19 #1 votes. Gillette is second followed this week by East who pushes Sheridan to fourth. The top four teams in 4A play each other this week. #1 Natrona hosts #3 East while #2 Gillette goes to #4 Sheridan. For East, its the first of three road games in their last four contests.
3A has Powell with all but 2 top votes. Star Valley took those. The Panthers and Braves get a chance to settle it on the field Friday in Powell as the Braves make a long roadie to Park County. Douglas impressed voters with their win over Buffalo enough to take back over third. Green River moves to fourth with Riverton remaining at #5.
2A has the same five teams as well, but, a little rearranging. Big Horn’s win over Glenrock has vaulted the Rams from fifth to second. Lyman is still #1 with 19 of 21 top votes. Lovell remains third as does Newcastle in fourth. The Herders fell all the way to fifth. #5 G’Rock makes a second straight road trip, this time to #4 Newcastle.
1A has the same top five as a week ago while Six Man football remains the same for a third straight week. 1A is Cokeville, Lusk, Southeast, Rocky Mountain, and Burlington. #4 Rocky makes a long road trip to #1 Cokeville on Friday afternoon. Six Man has Dubois followed by Snake River, Kaycee, Midwest and Guernsey-Sunrise.
