Bishop Gorman is the No. 1 team in the first in-season 2021 High School Football America Nevada Top 10. The Gaels opened the season Friday with an impressive 42-21 win over Saint Louis, the No. 1 team in Hawaii.
BG, which is currently ranked No. 60 in the High School Football America 100 powered by NFL Play Football, the NFL’s initiative to provide fun and engaging experience for players of all ages and skill levels, was scheduled to play Bishop Manogue on Friday. That game has been cancelled, because of poor air quality in northern Nevada that has kept the No. 10 team in our statewide rankings.
The cancellation gives Gorman a bye week heading into its game against nationally-ranked Miami Central on September 4 in Naples, Florida. The Rockets are currently ranked No. 30 in the nation after losing its opener to No. 6 St. John Bosco (California)
Defending 2019 Class 4A state champ Liberty is ranked No. 2 this week. The Patriots will play Canyon Springs on Friday.
No. 4 Damonte Ranch opens its season Friday at home against Central from Fresno, California. Central is ranked No. 130 in our national rankings.
With Gorman and Bishop Manogue off, the only head-to-head matchup is between No. 7 Arbor View and No. 8 Faith Lutheran.
