Coach Darryl Brown's Grimsley Whirlies remain No. 1 in this week's HSXtra.com Football Top 10 Poll despite their first loss of the season, a 21-20 defeat to East Forsyth at Jamieson Stadium.

Grimsley remains No. 1 in this week's HSXtra.com Football Top 10 Poll despite the Whirlies' first loss of the season.

Grimsley's 21-20 defeat to 2018 NCHSAA Class 4-A champion East Forsyth made things a little closer at the top, and Reidsville moves into sole possession of the No. 2 spot with a bounce-back win over Mount Airy one week after the Rams' first regular-season loss since 2015.

Dudley didn't play and is No. 3, just behind Reidsville as it heads into its annual rivalry game with Smith. Northeast Guilford makes the biggest move, from No. 9 to No. 5, after beating Northern Guilford 35-21.
