Corona Centennial (CA) new #1 in Media Poll

Corona Centennial Huskies

by Jeff Fisher

With three different #1’s in the five national ranking services in our national media compilation poll, it’s going to be an interesting finish to the season.

Corona Centennial (California) ascends to the top spot this week after beating former #1 St. John Bosco (California) 62-52 on Saturday for the CIF-Southern Section Pac 5 title.  The Huskies have a three point lead on our new #2 Colquitt County (Georgia) and Allen (Texas) and Bishop Gorman (Nevada), who are tied in the third spot.

Currently, Corona Centennial is ranked #1 by two polls — MaxPreps and NationalHSFootball.com. We have our three-time “mythical” champ Allen #1 in our poll, while Bishop Gorman is #1 in the USA TODAY Super 25 and PrepNation.com has Katy in the top spot.

In addition to our poll, which is based on our proprietary algorithm, we include USA Today’s Super 25, MaxPreps’ Xcellent 25, NationalHSFootball.com’s HSFB 100 and PrepNation.com’s National Prep Poll.

The poll awards points on the basis of ranking.  For example, the #1 team receives 25 points, the #2 team receives 24 points and so forth.

Our media compilation poll is released every Wednesday.
