National Top 25 welcomes Chandler (AZ), Cibolo Steele (TX) and Mainland (FL)

Top 25

After spending most of the season just outside the High School Football America National Top 25, Chandler (Arizona) and Cibolo-Steele (Texas) are now part of the exclusive club.  The Wolves and Knights enter the Top 25, which is created with our exclusive algorithm, along with Mainland (Florida), which began the season ranked #17.

The trio found room in the Top 25 thanks to loses by #12 Cedar Hill (Texas), #20 Mater Dei (California) and #23 Bergen Catholic (New Jersey).  All three of those teams should be in The Other 25, teams #26 throughh #50, when it’s released on Monday.
