The 2017 high school football season will mark the fifth season that High School Football America produces its national rankings with our proprietary algorithm.  And, to celebrate the evolution of our algorithm ranking system, we’re proud to announce that we’ll be expanding our national rankings from a Top 50 to a Top 100.  This will also result in our seven regional rankings being expanded from a Top 10 to a Top 20.  We will also continue to do our state-by-state rankings as well.

In addition, we’ll be moving-up the release date of our national rankings from August 1st to mid-July.  The exact date will be announced later this month.

Bishop Gorman, which needs to replace Tate Martell and his undefeated record at quarterback, enters 2017 as our defending national champ.  The Gaels are riding a 54 game win streak, which is the second longest active streak in 11-man football.

So, to get ready for the release of our preseason Top 100, we thought it would be good to look back at 2016 to see which teams finished No. 1 in all 50 state rankings.
