Etowah and Hokes Bluff continued their remarkable consistency this season, as both remained at No. 2 in their respective classifications in this week’s ASWA high school football rankings released Tuesday night.

The Class 5A Blue Devils (9-0) beat Alexandria 27-7 Friday and have just one more game before getting a bye before the first round of the playoffs; Etowah welcomes Boaz on Friday. If the Devils win this week, they will wrap up the Region 6 title.

Etowah got seven first-place votes this week, while No. 1 Vigor received 19 first-place votes. The Devils have been ranked second in 5A for nine weeks this season.

The 4A Eagles (8-0) also face a game this week that will determine if it wins the Region 6 crown. Hokes Bluff hosts No. 3 Jacksonville on Friday in a battle of unbeatens. The winner of that one will finish atop the region; the loser still will host a first-round playoff game as the No. 2 seed.

Friday, Hokes Bluff rallied to beat Cherokee County 21-17 to stay perfect. The Eagles landed one first-place vote this week, while No. 1 UMS-Wright received 25 votes for the top spot. Hokes Bluff has spent eight weeks at No. 2 in 4A this season.

No other Etowah County teams were ranked or received votes this week.

Other area teams ranked included Piedmont (No. 5 in 3A), Fyffe (No. 1 in 2A) and Collinsville (No. 10 in 2A).
