Top 25 Media Poll

High School Football America’s partner USA TODAY High School Sports released its Super 25 over the last two days, which now means that we have enough preseason rankings to produce our first media compilation poll.

For 2017, our media poll will use the USA TODAY Super 25, MaxPreps’ Xcellent 25, MaxPreps’ Freeman Computer Rankings, Prep Nation’s National Prep Football Poll and the Massey Ratings.  The Prep Football Poll will be released on August 17 and is not part of our first rankings.

The poll awards points to a team on the basis of its ranking in each poll. For example, the No. 1 team receives 25 points, the No. 2 team receives 24 points and so forth.

Mater Dei (California), which is No. 2 in the High School Football America Top 100, is the No. 1 team in the compilation poll with 123 of 125 possible points.  The Monarchs are ranked No. 1 in the Super 25, Xcellent 25 and the Freeman rankings.

Our No. 1 St. John Bosco (California) is ranked No. 2 in the compilation poll.  In addition to our preseason No. 1, the Braves are No. 1 in the Massey Ratings.

Rounding-out the Top 10 are IMG Academy (Florida) tied at No. 3 with defending national champ Bishop Gorman (Nevada), Corona Centennial (California) is No. 5, followed by Allen (Texas) at No. 6, Chandler (Arizona) at No. 7, St. Thomas Aquinas (Florida) at No. 8, DeMatha (Maryland) at No. 9 and Grayson (Georgia) at No. 10.

Mater Dei, St. John Bosco, IMG, Bishop Gorman, Corona Centennial, Allen, Chandler DeMatha and No. 12 De La Salle (California) are ranked in the Top 25 by all five of the ranking services.

No. 8 St. Thomas Aquinas (Florida), No. 10 Grayson, No. 11 DeSoto (Texas), No. 13 Bergen Catholic (New Jersey), No. 15 East (Utah), No. 20 Carol City (Florida) and No. 21 (tied) St. Xavier (Ohio) are ranked in the Top 25 of four of the ranking services.

We will release a new preseason compilation poll on August 17.
