NEW Top 25 welcomes South Pointe (South Carolina)

Top 25

Bishop Gorman‘s grip on the top spot in the High School Football America Top 25, developed with our proprietary algorithm, is a little bit stronger after beating Hawaii’s top team Kahuku 35-7 on Saturday night.  The Gaels, who will play their first in-state game against Bonanza (Nevada) this week, have now beaten teams from California, Florida, Hawaii and Texas.  In two weeks, Gorman will host #10 St. Thomas Aquinas (Florida), which could be the game that ultimately determines the “mythical” national championship.

Our #2 team, IMG Academy (Florida) closed the gap in our algorithm with a solid 35-14 win over St. John’s College High School from Washington, D.C.  The loss didn’t affect the Cadets, as they stay at #9 with a big game against #22 Good Counsel (Maryland) coming-up on Saturday.

There will be two other big games this weekend featuring Top 50 teams.  In Florida, #6 Miami Central will play #26 Booker T. Washington in their annual rivalry game on Saturday.  On Friday in Texas, #20 Judson will take-on #28 Cibolo Steele.  Judson jumped five spots this week.

Related: NEW The Other 25

The biggest mover this week is South Pointe (South Carolina), which jumps into the Top 25 at #23.  The Stallions jump twelve spots after beating former #10 Mallard Creek (North Carolina).  Mallard Creek tumbles to #25.

Jenks (Oklahoma) and Trinity (Kentucky) both move-up three spots to #16 and #19 respectively.

Dropping-out this week into The Other 25 is St. Edward (Ohio).
