Here's a look at where the seven Forsyth County public school football teams stand halfway through 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. Also, more weight is placed on results from Weeks 4-6.

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.

Note that all games involving Forsyth public school teams from here through the end of the regular season are region contests.

Here's where the teams stood at the end of the first quarter.
