In what will go down as one of the most difficult high school football seasons of all-time, here is the final High School Football America 100 for the 2020 Fall football season. We realize that many top teams around the nation, including our last two national champs (St. John Bosco – 2019 and Mater Dei – 2017 & 2018), are still sidelined due to the coronavirus pandemic, so it’s not a true picture of the overall top teams.

In the coming weeks, High School Football America co-founder Jeff Fisher will be making decisions on how to handle the states playing in the Spring. It’s possible that we might be able to adapt our algorithm to include the Spring season in The 100. For now, we’re still waiting to see which teams will be playing.

In the meantime, IMG Academy from Bradenton, Florida wraps-up this part of the 2020 season as our “mythical” national champ. This year, the Ascenders beat four HSFA 100 teams — No. 13 Duncanville, No. 46 Northwestern (Florida), No. 67 Edgewater (Florida) and No. 92 Venice (Florida).

Alabama 7A champ Thompson finishes No. 2, followed by Texas 6A Division I champ Westlake at No. 3, Georgia 7A champ Grayson at No. 5 and Ohio Division II champ Archbishop Hoban at No. 5.

Overall, Texas leads the way with 21 teams in the Top 100, followed by Florida with 17 teams.
