Football points have standing early

It’s early in the football season, but it’s worth noting a few things about the MPSSAA points standings.

Sure, much of this could change as the season goes on. After all, there are still 32 undefeated teams through the first four weeks of competition and few will remain that way. Still, you can get an idea that some teams have set themselves up in good position while others have begun fading already. The top four teams in each region advance to the regional playoffs.

River Hill, which won the last two Class 2A titles, leads the race in Class 3A East over Howard County rival Atholton. The Hawks have already beaten Wilde Lake, last season's Class 3A runner-up. They meet Atholton, one of the season's hottest turnaround stories, on Oct. 30.

In Class 4A East, Arundel leads the way after reaching the state semifinals last season. The Wildcats have already beaten Old Mill, the top Anne Arundel rival in the region. They face Annapolis, which is just out of the region's top four, Friday.

Dunbar, the three time-defending Class 1A champ, trails Baltimore City foe Forest Park in Class 1A South. The Poets lost ground when they fell to Patterson three weeks ago, but they could make some of that up with a win over unbeaten City on Friday.

Other teams atop their regional rankings: Franklin in Class 3A North; Southern in Class 2A South; Chesapeake-BC in Class 2A North; and Joppatowne in Class 1A East.

I am not sure if you are aware but unless the MPSSAA Points System is wrong...Forest Park is leading in the 1A SOUTH and Dunbar is second. Forest Park deserves some type of recognition for a tremendous turnaround.
