With many states now underway, it's time to update the Xcellent 25 National Football Rankings presented by the Army National Guard.
Lots of movement is a result of the Corky Kell Classic, Georgia's big season-opening event held at the Georgia Dome. Colquitt County, ranked No. 18 to start the season, fell to North Gwinnett on a last-second field goal, while unranked Camden County looked downright dominant on both sides of the ball in a 42-0 victory Peachtree Ridge.
In a battle between two ranked teams, Bishop Gorman held off Our Lady of Good Counsel, and as a result now checks in at No. 10.
Expect more movement in the rankings over the next two weekends when nearly all states will have kicked off.Xcellent 25 National Football Rankings presented by the Army National Guard1. (1) Manatee (Bradenton, Fla.), No Record
