LEWISVILLE — Following the unveil of Dave Campbell’s Texas Football Week 3 statewide Texas high school football rankings for the 2021 season, the Childress Bobcats jumped to No. 4 in Class 3A Division II, up two spots from their No. 6 preseason ranking.
Taking a bye week Friday, Sept. 10, the Bobcats’ two prior wins, including a Week 1 68-27 final over the Panhandle Panthers and a Week 2 29-7 final over the Perryton Rangers, are to thank for the jump.
Preceding the Bobcats are the No. 1 Franklin Lions (3-0), the No. 2 Gunter Tigers (3-0) and the No. 3 Canadian Wildcats (2-1), who have all maintained their preseason rankings.
Childress bypassed the previously ranked No. 5 Newton Eagles (2-0), who are now No. 4, and the previously ranked No. 4 Waskom Wildcats (2-1), who are now No. 7.
Also moving up in the ranks are the No. 6 Holliday Eagles (3-0), who were previously No. 7.
New to the list are the No. 8 West Ruck Raiders (3-0), the No. 9 Abernathy Antelopes (3-0) and the No. 10 Poth Pirates (2-0).
Exiting the ranks were the Elysian Fields Yellowjackets (2-1), previously No. 7; East Bernard Brahmas (2-1), previously No. 8; and Lexington Eagles (1-2), previously No. 10.
