By now, everyone knows why we delayed the unveiling of the High School Football America 100 powered by BlackMP Living Water. With the constant changing of schedules, we know we made the right decision to wait until now, because we wanted to protect the integrity of our proprietary algorithm that we’ve been using since 2013 to create our national rankings.

Now that we have 32 states playing with four more to follow, we’re happy to unveil the HSFA 100.

Leading the way is two-time defending Texas high school champ North Shore. The Mustangs are the first Texas team to sit atop the rankings, since 2015 when three-time High School Football America “mythical” national champ Allen sat at No. 1 until late in the season.

North Shore is one of seventeen Texas teams in the Top 100. Florida is right behind the Lone Star State with 16 teams. Ohio has the third most ranked teams with 12 schools, followed by Georgia with 11.
