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.
