ATLANTA, GA - The GDFL Top 25 rankings were released by league president Charles Thompson via Facebook on Tuesday afternoon. Breaking down the poll there are fourteen unbeaten teams, nine one-loss teams and two two-loss teams.

The Dallas Diesel were the lone Top 10 team to fall losing 31-23 to the Texas Exclusive who entered the rankings at No. 24. The Diesel fall to No. 17. Everyone else slid up a spot in the Top 10 with the Beaufort Hornets entering in at No.10.

At the bottom, gone are the DC Explosion and the Tennessee Hurricanes who both lost over the weekend. Re-entering the rankings are the Florida Falcons at No. 25 and Texas Exclusive at No. 24 as the only two-loss teams in this weeks rankings.

The middle of the pack saw some movement as the Lousiana Bayou Vipers loss 15-6 to the Jacksonville Juggernauts of the Southern American Football League and the Georgia Jets suffered extreme engine failure in their loss to now-No.6 Henry County Horsemen. That opened the door for several teams to slide up a spot or two including the Buckeye Bearcats rising to No. 14.

The Bearcats are the lowest ranked unbeaten team and improved to 5-0 after a 56-7 win over the Pickerton Wildcats. The Bearcats did it with a powerful rushing attack scoring 7 of their 8 touchdowns on the ground. Quarterback Jesse Masson scored three times, Justin James twice, Martell McCullogh added a 50-yard touchdown while wide receiver Mike Love added a rushing touchdown, yes add'em up that's 7 rushing touchdowns. The Bearcat defense scored the other points when linebacker Jeremy Glutting returned a fumble for a touchdown leading a defense that held the Wildcats under 100 yards of total offense on the day.
