NEW High School Football America “The Other 25” rankings

The Other 25

At this time of the year, the High School Football America algorithm has to work overtime to separate teams in our National Top 50. And, for the first time in four years of using our proprietary algorithm to crown a national champ, we have a first — a Top 25 team dropping out of the rankings into The Other 25, even though they didn’t suffer a loss.

South Pointe from South Carolina slipped-out of the Top 25 to #26 this week.  The Stallions, who will play Hartsville this weekend in South Carolina’s Class AAAA championship game, are only three-thousandths of a percent out of the Top 25. Florida 4A champ Cocoa, at #27 this, week, are just eight-thousandths of a percent from the Top 25.

South Pointe’s slip was Edna Karr‘s gain as the Cougars, who won Louisiana’s Class 4A title on Saturday, moves-up from last week’s #26 ranking.

Georgia 6A champ Valdosta is the biggest mover this week as the Wildcats check-in at #29.  Carol City, Florida’s 6A champ, moves-up three spots to #35 this week.

New to the Top 50 this week are four-time Florida 3A champ Trinity Christian Academy (Jacksonville) at #46 and Dutch Fork of South Carolina at #47.  Trinity Christian Academy began the year ranked #25 nationally.  Dutch Fork will be playing for South Carolina’s Class AAAAA title this weekend.
