It was a quiet week in the High School Football America Pennsylvania Top 25 with a couple of small movements.

Harrisburg moves-up three spots to No. 13 this week after winning three games in 11-days. However, because of a late start due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Cougars are in jeopardy of not qualifying for the District 3 postseason, even though they are one of the top teams in the state.

District officials changed postseason qualifying guidelines for the 2020 season, because of COVID-19. Teams need to play at least four games by Monday, October 26 and as of the release of these rankings, the program is still looking for a fourth game.

Even Penn State star linebacker and future NFL Draft pick Micah Parsons is trying to help his former team find a game, so it can qualify for the Class 6A playoffs.

As far as the rest of the statewide rankings, Coatesville moves-up two spots to No. 20 after beating Downingtown West 22-14, which drops West two spots to No. 22 in the latest Top 25. Coming-up this week, Coatesville will play No. 21 Downingtown East.
