The South Forsyth football team is ranked sixth in Class 7A in this week's Georgia Sports Writers Association football poll. The War Eagles (7-1, 5-0 Region 5-7A) were tied for fifth last week. South is set to close out its regular season against West Forsyth on Friday, and a win over the Wolverines would give the War Eagles the region title and a No. 1 playoff seed.
