The DeKalb County High School Tiger football team moved up one spot in the latest Associated Press high school football poll. The Tigers, who had a bye last Friday night, inched up from #7 to #6 in Class 3A in the poll, which was released on Monday.
DeKalb County received 94 points in the latest poll, which put them squarely in the #6 position. Anderson County is the #5 team, with 134 points, while Marshall County is just behind the Tigers at #7, with 77 points. David Lipscomb remains Class 3A's top-ranked team for the third week in a row, while the top 5 all remained the same from last week, with Knoxville Catholic at #2, McMinn Central at #3 and Giles County at #4. Polk County, White House and Bolivar Central round out the Top Ten.
The Tigers are 3-0 on the season, with wins over Warren County, Watertown and Greenbrier. DeKalb will host Station Camp for Homecoming, this Friday night. Kickoff will be at 7:30 p.m. and WJLE will have live coverage.
