Wyoming High School 4A Football Rankings: Week 1, 2016
Coaches and media voters took notice on what happened in Class 4A last week, since it was the only Class where games counted.
The top 2 are unchanged, and so is the gap between them. Gillette woke up in the 2nd half and the Camels would maintain their #1 ranking over #2 Sheridan. The voters were unanimous in placing Rock Springs at #3, after some late game drama last week. The Tigers will be the first opponent to visit the new stadium and field in Laramie this weekend. The last 2 spots in the top 5, are occupied by 2, 1-0 Cheyenne schools that play each other. Central is ranked #4 and hosts #5 South. The Indians and Bison have split the last 2 games, with the visiting team winning each time. This is only the second time that South has been ranked in the top 5. The other time was 2 years ago. This time around, the Bison edged out Cheyenne East by 1 vote.
