By  | 

DECATUR, Miss. (ECCC Athletics) - For the first time since 2015, the East Central Community College football team is ranked in the National Junior College Athletic Association Top 20 Football Poll.

The Warriors came in at No. 20 in the latest poll released today.

It is the first time East Central has been ranked since the final poll of the 2015 season when the Warriors finished No. 10.

East Central is 2-1 on the season. After a season-opening loss at current No. 5 ranked Northwest, the Warriors upset No. 14 Itawamba on the road before defeating Southwest last week in Bailey Stadium Decatur.

The Warriors are on the road again this Thursday, Sept. 20, to face Pearl River in Poplarville. That game kicks off at 6 p.m.
