The John Tyler Lions moved up three spots to No. 4 in the latest Associated Press high school football rankings, released on Monday.

John Tyler, which was ranked No. 1 before its loss to Lancaster on Sept. 7, jumped from No. 7 in the Class 4A poll following its 21-o shutout of crosstown rival Tyler Lee last Friday.

In Class 3A, despite defeating Chapel Hill by a 30-6 margin, Carthage dropped two spots to No. 9. Kilgore, meanwhile, had its game against Pine Tree canceled because of inclement weather but still managed to jump up two spots to No. 8.

Newton, Tatum and Daingerfield held steady at Nos. 3, 4 and 8, respectively in the 2A rankings. New Boston entered the poll at No. 10 following its 47-7 rout of Class 3A Pittsburg.

Joaquin stayed ranked No. 7 in the Class 1A poll.
