Grayson no longer unanimous No. 1 in state football rankings

Grayson is still the No. 1 football team in Class AAAAAA, but is no longer a unanimous pick after this past weekend's Corky Kell Classic.

The Rams, despite a 31-12 win over McEachern, lost a first-place vote to Camden County, which routed Peachtree Ridge 42-0 on Saturday.

North Gwinnett made a big jump in AAAAAA from unranked to No. 4 after an upset of Colquitt County, which fell from No. 3 to No. 10. Norcross is the only other Gwinnett team in the AAAAAA rankings at No. 5.

Buford is No. 2 in AAA with a couple of first-place votes and Greater Atlanta Christian is eighth in AA.

The following is a look at the current state rankings:
