One thing that comes with success is the confusing nature of different polls. Tupelo football (4-0) is in the middle of three major polls in the state. Let’s break them down, shall we?
THS continues their third-straight week in the Mississippi Public Broadcasting poll, this week at No. 12. They’ve risen each week since entering No. 24 in week 2. Since then, they’ve been No. 23 in week 3 and No. 16 in week 4. Views the entire list here (via @RobbyDonoho at WCBI).
A panel of Associated Press state sports writers released the selections of the top high school football teams in the state yesterday. THS entered for the first time at No. 10. They received votes in the Class 6A rankings, too. View the entire list here. (via Northeast Mississippi’s Daily Journal)
The Mississippi Gridiron introduced THS at No. 20 this week‘s MHSAA Top 20. This is Tupelo’s first ranking in the 2013 poll. They also feature them at No. 10 in 6A. Learn more about Chris Brooks and the Mississippi Gridiron here.
