Here's a look at where the seven Forsyth County public school football teams stand 25% of the way into the season.

Consider this more a pulse of how well the programs are performing as opposed to a projection of how they fill finish the season. It should also not be viewed as predictions that any one team would necessarily beat another on a neutral field. These rankings are incredibly unscientific but do attempt to reward final results while taking strength of schedule into account.

We'll come back in three weeks time to reassess all of the programs. Until then, feel free to let us know which teams are underrated, overrated or (if you're a fan of the top-ranked team) rated exactly right.
