Penultimate High School Football America 100

High School Football America 100

With Nos. 2, 4 and 19 losing in Texas this weekend, there’s a big shake-up at the top of the next to last High School Football America 100 national rankings that are created with our proprietary algorithm.

Duncanville climbs from No. 28 to No. 17 after knocking-off defending champ Allen, which entered the game at No. 2 in the nation. Next week, the Panthers will play North Shore, which moves up to No. 2 after beating former No. 31 Lake Travis.

Next Sunday we’ll crown our “mythical” national champ after the Texas playoffs end along with the two GEICO State Champions Bowl Series games.
