Texas leads High School Football America Preseason 100 with 14 Teams

preseason 100

Fourteen teams from the Lone Star State start the 2018 season in the High School Football America Preseason 100 that is created with our proprietary algorithm. There are also two teams on our “bubble” (No. 101 through No. 125) and nineteen others in our honorable mention, which means 35 teams from Texas are considered among the best 225 teams in the nation heading into the season.

The fourteen teams puts Texas at the head of the Preseason 100 list, Florida is next with twelve teams in the National 100, followed by California with ten.

The Allen Eagles, who won our “mythical” national championship in 2013 and 2014, lead the way at No. 2, followed by Lake Travis at No. 16. Those two met for the Class 6A Division I title last year. The Eagles finished No. 2 overall in 2017 with LT ranked No. 15. Katy is the third Texas team in the Top 25 at No. 21.

Behind Katy is North Shore at No. 30, followed by Euless Trinity at No. 34, Aledo at No. 41, Westlake at No. 43, Judson at No. 59, Duncanville at No. 68, Southlake Carroll at No. 77, Cy-Fair at No. 90, Klein Collins at No. 95, Permian at No. 97 and Midway at No. 100.
