Raiders or Rangers?  Denton Ryan or Frisco Lone Star?

After Lone Star went into Highland Park's Highlander Stadium Friday night and came out with a convincing 30-19 victory over the Scots, we knew there would be a new top dog in Class 5A Division I, but it seemed like a tossup.  And when the answer came Monday afternoon, it was Lone Star sitting on top of the heap.

The Rangers leapfrogged Ryan in the latest Dave Campbell's Texas Football state rankings.  Denton Ryan remained at No. 2, while Highland Park dropped to fourth in 5AD1.

Frisco Lone Star, which became the first in-state opponent to beat Highland Park at home since 1998, is one of five North Texas schools currently ranked No. 1 in the state in their respective classes.

In Class 6A, Duncanville tightened their grip on the top spot with a 35-14 hammering of St. John's (Washington, D.C.).  Allen is ranked third in 6A, Denton Guyer is at No. 7 and Southlake Carroll sits at No. 8.  Other local schools in the 6A Top 25 include DeSoto (12th), Arlington Martin (13th), Cedar Hill (20th) and Arlington (21st).

In Class 5A Division I, Lancaster joins Lone Star, Denton Ryan and Highland Park in the Top 10.  The Tigers are ranked ninth this week.

In 5A Division II, Aledo spends another week at No. 1.  South Oak Cliff is ranked eighth.

In 4A Division I, Argyle is at No. 1 for a second week.  Decatur jumped two spots to sixth, while Springtown entered the 4AD1 rankings at No. 10.

In Class 4A Division II, Sunnyvale held at No. 8 for another week.

The fifth of the North Texas teams to top their class is the Grandview Zebras in 3A Division I.  The defending state champs remained a notch ahead of No. 2 Malakoff.  

In 3A Division II, Gunter is No. 5.
