Area prep football rankings (Sept. 17)

Here are the top 10 teams in the Grand Strand area as ranked by The Sun News Sports Editor Shane Bowen:

1. Myrtle Beach

| Seahawks put trust in Campbell and he delivered big. They'll need more of that magic tonight.

2. Conway

| Tigers in holding pattern as they wait for Moody to return from injury.

3. Loris

| Lions' 1-2 punch of Brown and Strayhorne could lead to big things this year.

4. Carolina Forest

| The Panthers are riding high and there is excitement swirling in Carolina Forest. How long will it last?

5. Carvers Bay

| The Bears have been hit hard by the injury bug. When healthy they are probably better than this ranking.

6. Andrews

| Yellow Jackets have their mojo back, and they've added a lot of believers around the area.

7. Socastee

| Braves have to find a way to stop people to have any success this season.

8. Waccamaw

| Plenty of bragging rights on the line tonight.

9. Aynor

| Blue Jackets left beaten and battered last week, but they should feel good again Saturday night.

10. Green Sea Floyds

| Trojans' postseason chances depend on outcome of games like tonight - winnable but not easy.
