It was a tough 2020 high school football for the State of Minnesota.
First, in August, the Minnesota State High School League moved the football season to the Spring of 2021. Then, on September 21, the MSHSL reversed its decision and approved the playing of a six-game regular season, followed by a full postseason. Finally, just before Thanksgiving, two weeks into the postseason, the season was cancelled.
With that history lesson, it’s time crown the No. 1 team in the state, according to our proprietary algorithm.
Eden Prairie finishes on-top of the High School Football America Minnesota Top 10 statewide rankings with a perfect 7-0 mark. The Eagles had a narrow lead on No. 2 Lakeville South in our algorithm at the time the playoffs were shutdown.
