Milton is 5-0 for the first time in 14 years, but being ranked is even rarer. The Eagles are No. 9 in this week’s Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Class AAAAAA rankings, Milton’s first appearance in a state poll since 1980.

Milton opened the season with a 31-24 overtime victory over Alpharetta, now the first-place team in Region 6, and has won the rest of its games by at least four touchdowns.

The latest was a 38-9 victory over Wheeler despite the absence of start running back Treyvon Paulk, who is injured. Micco Brisker rushed for 111 yards and a touchdown in his place.

Milton ironically graduated its best senior class in history when four players signed with ACC or SEC schools. One of those was Carl Lawson, who went to Auburn as the No. 1-rated defense end in the country.
