Over the last couple of year’s the Delbarton has spent a lot of time in the middle of the High School Football America New Jersey Top 25, but after Friday’s 27-21 upset of former No. 2 Don Bosco Prep, the Green Wave is now in uncharted territory. Delbarton moves-up two spots this week in the statewide rankings to No. 3.

Wayne Valley climbs eight spots to No. 15 this week after surprising No. 18 Northern Highlands 28-23. The upset came one week after WV lost to No. 11 Wayne Hills. Northern Highlands will try to rebound this week when it plays Wayne Hills.

The Northern Highlands/Wayne Hills matchup is one of two head-to-head matchups in the Top 25. The other is the No. 4 Don Bosco Prep squaring-off against No. 5 St. Joseph Regional (Montvale) on Friday night.
