High School Football America Public Schools Top 25

by Jeff Fisher

High School Football America logoDuring a conversation the other day, someone brought-up the fact that national rankings are dominated by private schools. To that, I said that 16 of the teams currently in the High School Football America Top 25 are public schools. Of course, that same person wanted to know if I would mind posting a Top 25 for public schools using our rankings algorithm.  I thought, what the heck, why not.  Below you’ll see the public list.  To be fair, tomorrow we’ll release a private schools Top 25.

BTW…USA Today’s Super 25 has 17 public schools, while MaxPreps Xcellent 25 features 16 publics.

Minor shifts in the latest High School Football America Top 25

by Jeff Fisher

Southlake Carroll High School footballWith three of the top four teams idle and only two losses within the Top 25 this past weekend, there isn’t a whole lot of movement in the latest national rankings.

There are no changes until we get to #13 where Southlake Carroll (Texas) moves-up one spot after being #17 Euless Trinity (Texas) 10-6 on Friday.  Trinity drops only a spot in our rankings.

Also sliding-up a spot is Colquitt County (Georgia) after an impressive win over previously undefeated Valdosta.

Aside from Trinity’s loss, only #23 Archbishop Moeller (Ohio) was the only Top 25 team to lose this weekend. Moving into the poll is Brentwood Academy of Tennessee at #25.

The biggest game on the horizon this coming weekend is on Thursday when #5 DeSoto takes over defending Texas 5A Division II champ Cedar Hill that began the season ranked in the High School Football America, but dropped-out after an early season 40-30 loss to #22 Skyline (Texas).

In northern California, #2 De La Salle and #9 Folsom will face undefeated opponents Friday night.

Around the High School Football America Top 25: October 17, 2014

by Jeff Fisher

Southlake Carroll High School footballAside from #14 Southlake Carroll‘s (Texas) come-from-behind 10-6 win over #17 Euless Trinity (Texas), no High School Football America Top 25 team tasted defeat Friday night.

Playing before 13,000 fans, Carroll (7-0, 3-0 District 7-6A) and Trinity (7-1, 3-1 District 7-6A) put-on a defensive battle that came down to gutsy call by Dragon head coach Hal Wasson with 5:16 left in the game.  With Trinity holding a 6-3 lead on two first half field goals, Southlake Carroll was faced with a fourth down at the Trinity 2 yard line.  Instead of going for a game-tying field goal, Wasson and his team went for the go ahead score. Running back Lil’ Jordan Humphrey wasn’t so little as he scored what turned-out to be the winning touchdown.  Humphrey finished the game with 106 yards on 28 carries. Continue Reading →
