Arkansas 8-man high school football report (Week 1)

The top performers from Week 0, rankings and upcoming matchups

Kyle Sutherland  

There was not a whole lot of 8-Man action across the state during Week 0 with just three games played, as the rest of the field will be kicking off their season this week.

With so few games being played, the rankings for both sanctioned and club teams stay the same.

Here are some of the top performers, along with scores from Week 0 and games for this week.

Be sure to subscribe to the Arkansas 8-Man Pod for more in-depth weekly recaps of 8-man football across the state.
