Pennsylvania Top 10: Week 11

Pennsylvania Top 10

The Road to Hershey is underway and the opening round of the Pennsylvania high school football playoffs showed it can be a bumpy road to a state championship. Two High School Football America Pennsylvania Top 10 teams suffered defeat over the weekend, causing a big shake-up in the new rankings that are created with our proprietary algorithm.

Central Dauphin climbs four spots to #5 after knocking-off former #6 State College.  Cumberland Valley, which handed Central Dauphin its only loss this year, leaves the Top 10 after losing to Harrisburg.

The State College and Cumberland Valley losses open the door for North Allegheny and Archbishop Wood to enter the latest rankings.  North Allegheny makes its first appearance in the poll this year at #9, while Wood returns to the rankings at #10.  Wood began the year ranked #3.
