District 3-AAA Power Rankings - Week 4

  1. Powell (5-0) - Ranked #2 in the state, and still looks like a title contender. Looked very focused in their blowout win at Anderson County. Hosts Karns this week.
  2. Oak Ridge (2-2) - Struggled against Halls, but scored 2 TDs late to put the game away. Look for Zullinger to return soon. Tough test against Maryville this week.
  3. Hardin Valley (3-1) - Edged a bad Campbell County squad, 26-20. The Hawks have been Jekyll/Hyde so far this season, but are still a talented bunch. Should get back on track this week against Central.
  4. Karns (4-1) - Big win against Central - only their second win over the Bobcats in school history. Hard to believe that this is the same team that looked awful against South Doyle in week 0. The Beavers found a way to slow down Powell's offense last season. We'll see if they are up to the task again on Friday.
  5. Anderson County (2-3) - Crushed by the Panthers. This team really lacks a defense, but as bad as the bottom half of the district is, AC should easily earn a playoff spot. Hosts Halls this week.
  6. Halls (1-4) - Impressive performance against OR for 3+ quarters, but the defense just couldn't hold up. Tough test against AC this week.
  7. Central (0-5) - The Bobcats still can't find any offense, recording 57 total yards of offense and scoring just 3 offensive points against Karns. Thankfully, they've played great defense this year, which keeps them out of my bottom two. Things won't get any easier at Hardin Valley this week.
  8. Campbell County (1-4) - Surprising effort against Hardin Valley. Winable game at Clinton this Friday.
  9. Clinton (0-5) - Blown out by Knox Central (KY). Failed to score any offensive points. Best chance for a win comes this week against CC.
Hard to believe that one of the bottom four teams will earn an automatic playoff spot.

Other teams to watch out for in 5A (early title contenders):
  • Morristown West
  • Knox West
  • Tullahoma
  • Gallatin
  • Columbia
  • Clarksville NE 
  • Henry County
  • Memphis East
