With teams in the City of St. Louis and in St. Louis County still on the sidelines, because local officials won’t let them play during the coronavirus pandemic, we’re making a big change to the High School Football America Missouri Top 10. For now, we’re going to drop those teams that aren’t currently playing from the Top 10 statewide rankings.
That moves three teams, including No. 1 De Smet, our for now. Also falling out is No. 3 Christian Brothers and No. 9 Lutheran North.
With defending Class 6 champ De Smet sidelined, Raymore-Peculiar ascends to the top spot. This week, the Panthers will face No. 6 Lee’s Summit North, which drops from No. 4 after losing 38-35 to Liberty last Friday. That win moves Liberty into the Top 10 at No. 4 and sets-up a battle this week with No. 7 Lee’s Summit West.
In addition to Liberty cracking the statewide ranking, Jackson enters at No. 6, followed by Carthage at No. 9 and Blair Oaks at No. 10.
