Changes at the bottom of the latest Top 25

Top 25

Only one High School Football America Top 25 team lost this past weekend, which shuffles the bottom of our national rankings that are created with our proprietary algorithm.  Former #24 Mallard Creek (North Carolina) was beaten by Vance, which dropped the three-time state champs out of the Top 50 and also affected South Pointe‘s (South Carolina) strength of schedule.

All of the changes this week, come between #20 and #25 where American Heritage (Plantation, Florida) moves-up one spot to #20.  DeSoto (Texas) is the biggest mover this week by climbing from #23 to #21.  South Pointe dropped two spots to #22, while Cibolo Steele (Texas) falls one to #23. Clinton (Mississippi) from #25 to #24.

Cass Tech from Michigan is this week’s new addition to the National Top 25.

Looking ahead to this weekend, the big game will be in Southern California where #3 Mater Dei will take-on #6 St. John Bosco in what in essence is the Trinity League championship game.
