Preseason Public Schools Top 25

Public Schools Top 25

A couple of year’s ago, High School Football America began breaking-out the publics from the private schools for another way to look at our national rankings.  We continue that tradition this year with our Preseason Public School Top 25, which will be followed by our Preseason Private Schools Top 25 later today.  We will also include teams on the bubble, just outside of the Top 25 in our The Other 25 Bubble.

It should be noted to all of you that believe there’s a private school bias when it comes to our national rankings, our 2016  preseason Top 50 contains 27 publics and 23 privates.

Leading the publics is Cedar Hill from Texas, ranked #3 in our overall National Top 25.  The Longhorns are one of eight teams in the Public Top 25.  Georgia is next with four teams in the Public Top 25, followed by Florida with three.

For those of you unfamiliar with our rankings, this is the fourth straight year that High School Football America will be using its proprietary algorithm to rank teams nationally, regionally and locally.  What that means is, our computer does all the work, there’s no opinion involved.  Over the past three seasons, our preseason poll included some opinion, but this year marks the first time that our algorithm is completely in-charge of determining our “mythical” national champ from start to finish.
