Grayson (Loganville, Ga.), which dropped out of the Super 25 high school football rankings after it struggled in its first two games, is back in the Super 25.

The Rams, now No. 23, improved to 9-1 in their regular-season finale as quarterback Chase Brice threw two touchdown passes in a 45-3 defeat of South Gwinnett (Snellville) on Friday. Grayson’s only loss was in its first game, as it fell 26-7 to IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.), now ranked No. 2. The Rams also barely beat McEachern (Powder Springs) 16-13 in their second game, but since then, they have been dominant, particularly on defense, where they have allowed two touchdowns only once in their past seven games, a 36-14 defeat of Hoover, Ala., two weeks ago.

With Grayson back in the rankings, there are three Georgia teams in Class AAAAAAA in the Super 25, so that number will likely narrow as the playoffs continue, though the teams are in different quadrants in the playoff bracket. The other Peach State teams are No. 12 Mill Creek (Hoschton) and No. 13 Roswell.

It was also the first week in several that a Super 25 team lost to a unranked opponent. Previous No. 20 St. John College (Washington, D.C.), fell out after it lost 45-35 on Saturday to Gonzaga (Washington, D.C.). The same teams play this week in a Washington Catholic Athletic Conference semifinal.
