CarolinaPreps.com Top-20 Power Rankings

Top 20 Power Rankings following Round 3

The third round of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association football playoffs brought us some incredible action, a few major upsets, and added another layer of paint to the overall portrait that will become the final power rankings of the season.  Many head coaches say that it’s not where you start, or where you are ranked during the season, but where you finish, and a few teams that were considered under-the-radar teams are now firmly nestled inside the Top-10.
