Changes throughout the Top 25 Media Compilation Poll

Top 25

St. Thomas Aquinas’ loss to Deerfield Beach has caused lots of shifting in the latest High School Football America Top 25 Media Compilation Poll.

For the first time in several weeks, #1 Bishop Gorman (Nevada) has seen its lead shrink.  St. John Bosco (California) gains two points in this week’s poll to sit just four points back.

A big mover this week is Allen (Texas), which has moved into a third place tie with Corona Centennial (California).

In addition to our poll, which is based on our proprietary algorithm, we include USA Today’s Super 25, MaxPreps’ Xcellent 25, NationalHSFootball.com’s HSFB 100 and PrepNation.com’s National Prep Poll.

The poll awards points on the basis of ranking.  For example, the #1 team receives 25 points, the #2 team receives 24 points and so forth.

Our media compilation poll is released every Wednesday.
