Leaves starting to fall and temperatures slowly descending means the high school football season is getting close to its final quarter and naturally it's a good time to reflect on the progress of the season. When measuring the progress and success of a program it is always good to assess the strength the team's schedule. Measuring the strength of schedules has become one of the key components of college football teams' likelihood to play in the postseason and it has created conversations in the high school to start comparing their schedules with others in their classification and regions. Included below are the top 10 toughest schedules in each classification in Georgia. This information was gathered from GHSFHA and MaxPreps. Take a look where East Paulding ranks!
