Buford holds the top spot in the latest 2023 Georgia high school football rankings by MaxPreps. They’ve started the season strongly with three wins, with their most recent victory being an impressive 45-28 triumph over North Cobb.

Langston Hughes is ranked second, and right behind them are Mill Creek and Walton. In the top 10, we also find Carrollton, Parkview, Westlake, Grayson, Norcross, Benedictine, Ware County, and Milton.

Although it’s still early in the Georgia High School Football season, the competition is intense. Buford, the defending state champions, is looking formidable, but there are many other strong teams in the mix.

History of Georgia High School Football

High school football has been a big deal in Georgia for a very long time. They started playing the first official game back in 1895, and in 1920, they made the Georgia High School Association (GHSA) to make sure everything runs smoothly.

Georgia has seen some really awesome football players over the years, like Herschel Walker, Tim Tebow, and David Greene. These guys were so good that they became famous not just in Georgia, but all over the country.
