Only two spots changed, but those seemingly small changes in the ETSN.fm Week 7 3A Top 10 set the stage for a pivotal District 20-3A showdown this week.

No. 2 Gilmer (6-1, 3-0) edged Henderson 28-26 on Saturday dropped the Lions (3-3, 1-1) from fourth to fifth and moved unbeaten Center to No. 4 following the Roughriders' 38-0 win against Diboll. Center (7-0, 1-0) hosts rival Carthage on Friday in a 20-3A contest that will greatly impact the district title race.

No. 1 Kilgore (5-0, 2-0) had the week off. No. 3 Carthage (5-2, 1-0) held Huntington to zero first downs in a 56-0 homecoming rout.

The sixth through tenth spots remained the same. No. 6 Palestine (4-2) was idle. No. 7 Jasper (5-1) concluded its non-district schedule with a 68-0 blowout of New Orleans Cohen Prep, while No. 8 Bullard (5-1, 1-1) rebounded from its District 16-3A-opening loss to Kilgore with a 26-6 win at Gladewater.

No. 9 Van (5-1, 1-0) lit up the scoreboard in a 69-41 win against Mineola. Tenth-ranked Canton (5-1, 1-0) topped Athens 48-23.
