Running back Caleb McDowell (5) celebrates in the end zone after a touchdown run.

Lee County’s high school football program rose to No. 1 in Class AAAAAA in the latest AJC.com rankings.

It marks the fifth straight year the Trojans have been No. 1 at some point in the season.

Lee rose to No. 1 after a big 27-7 victory last Friday over Warner Robins, the No. 1 team in AAAAA. Its defense shut down a Warner Robins offense that entered the game averaging almost 40 points.

A.J. Patrick intercepted two passes โ€” Cedric Wynn had the other โ€” and returned one for a game-clinching, 72-yard touchdown. Caleb McDowell rushed for 128 yards and a TD in the victory. Chauncey Magwood and Preston Simmons also had TD runs.
