B2C Power Rankings: Top 10 All Age Groups 9.21.16
1. Grayson Rams – 8th Grade
The most dominant team in the state. The big back Justin Johnson might be one of the best players in the country
2. Central Dekalb Jaguars Black – 12U Division
Proved that they can win the big games. This is supposed to be there year. The only teams they have ever had trouble with are Acworth (7U – 10U) and Decatur Army (11U). Those teams are no longer together. The have the fastest defense in the state. They also have two wide receivers that will probably be given B2C All American consideration.
3. McEachern – 7th Grade
Great team, great coach. They are doing everything right on the field. Curious to see how that rematch will go when North Cobb has all their players.
4. North Henry Tigers – 11U Division
They had one of the best off seasons you could ever ask of a team. They picked up some nice pieces, made a coaching change and turned a already good team into a great team by becoming a family. Chemistry is something that is usually overlooked in the sports world but it really shouldn’t be. It also doesn’t hurt that they have B2C All American Raul Aguirre on the team to go along with a stingy defense.
5. Welcome All Panthers – 10U Division
Physical, disciplined and mistake free on defense and offense. Coach Noland believes in a no nonsense approach. It has worked for him for years. We will see how it goes when they play the Atlanta Ducks in a rematch of last years B2C Championship Series Semifinals.
6. Atlanta Ducks – 8U Division
They have literally dominated everyone this season so far. They have everything you want in a team when it comes to talent. They have a sole mission this year, to be #1 at the end of the season on the big stage.
7. Atlanta Tigers – 12U Division
Talented beyond belief but they also have a All American coaching them on the sidelines. Last years Frank Ski Bowl champions are sporting their new Riddell helmets as they have an undefeated record in the MAYFL.
8. North Gwinnett Bulldogs – 8th Grade
The #2 ranked team in the state in the B2C Prime 21 rankings and defending GFL Champions are loaded!!! They have the 6”4 212 pound QB with a cannon arm and a defense that is absolutely brutal.
9. Atlanta Ducks – 11U Division
Never have we seen this Atlanta Ducks team this low before as they have usually hovered in the top 5 of the power rankings, truth be told this almost feels like blasphemy typing this. This year has been different as they took an early loss, their first ever at their age group. They have also added some key pieces that have altered the dynamics of the team. A couple of things we do know is that Jelani Thurman and Terrance Love are still two of the best players in the country to go along with the best WR in their age group Solomon Evans. The talent they have on their team rivals any team in the country and they have some of the most enthusiastic fans (parents) in youth sports.
10. Blessed Trinity – 7th Grade
This team is winning every game by an average of 37 points per game. They have arguably the #1 TE in the country in Jack Nickel. They are very sound up front offensively and defensively. The real question for this team is do they have enough in their schedule to over take McEachern as the number one team in the 7th Grade polls…who knows. Is it possible that McEachern and Blessed Trinity would get together to play against each other at the end of the season in a winner take all type of game…who knows.
