Tucker, Martin Luther King Jr. and Stephenson hold three of the top five spots in the Class AAAAA high school football rankings and each will host region foes during weekend action.
The No. 2 ranked Tucker Tigers (2-0) meet Arabia Mountain (1-1) for the first time ever as they look to extend their winning streak to 18 games on Friday night at 8 p.m. at Adams Stadium.
The Tigers opened Region 6-AAAAA play with a 40-0 shutout of North Atlanta last week. Arabia Mountain fell 28-18 to No. 5 ranked Stephenson (1-0) in the region opener for both teams.
The No. 4 ranked M.L. King Lions (2-0) has opened the season with consecutive shutouts, including 18-0 over Southwest DeKalb last Saturday night. Mays (1-1) invades Hallford Stadium at 8 p.m. on Friday to take on the Lions following a 17-7 win over Miller Grove in a region opener.
The No. 5 ranked Jaguars of Stephenson fell victim to Hurricane Isaac in Week 2 as Pensacola Pine Forest (FL) had to pull out of the game at North Gwinnett due to school closings in Florida. The Jaguars got their first game under their belts with a 28-18 win over Arabia Mountain last Friday. Stephenson hosts Dunwoody (0-2), a 28-14 loser to Lakeside last Friday, in a 7:30 p.m. game at Hallford on Saturday night.
