The high school football season kicks off Thursday and this year the Delaware Live Sports crew has a different football rankings that we are calling the Super 7s.
We have seven members of our crew voting for the top 7 teams in the three high school classes. Each vote is worth a point total and our Delaware Live super 7s will be announced every Wednesday on our Delaware Live Sports Weekly show.
Here are the preseason Class A Super 7s. There are 21 teams in this middle category. The 3A class includes 11 of the biggest, winningest schools and 1A includes 14 smaller schools.
No. 1: Archmere Auks took all seven top votes in Class AA to take the top spot. The Auks open the season at home on Thursday Sept. 8. The Auks face a tough schedule including Friends, St. Mark’s, Tower Hill and DMA.
