North Little Rock takes top spot in final Arkansas AP poll

KATV - 7A Championship Game NLR

North Little Rock was the unanimous pick as Arkansas' top high school football team in the final Associated Press poll of 2017 after winning the Class 7A title. Class 6A champion Greenwood was voted second, followed by 7A-runnerup Bentonville.

Pulaski County won its fourth state title in a row, in Class 5A, and is ranked fourth overall. Bryant is fifth. The remainder of the Top 10 includes Conway, Pine Bluff, Bentonville West, Fayetteville and Little Rock McClellan.

The state champions in the lower divisions — Arkadelphia, Rivercrest and Foreman — all topped the rankings. Rivercrest in Class 3A and Foreman in Class 2A had been unranked in the final AP regular-season poll.

North Little Rock's title was central Arkansas' first in the state's largest classification since 2004.
