St. Thomas Aquinas (Florida) is the top-ranked team in the first media compilation poll for the 2016 season. The Raiders, who are ranked #1 in both the USA TODAY Super 25 and MaxPreps Xcellent 25, open the regular season this weekend against Booker T. Washington (Florida), which is ranked #16 in the comp poll.
High School Football America’s #1 team, St. John Bosco (California) is tied at #7 with Ohio’s Colerain (Ohio).
While Florida teams are 1-2 in our first poll with IMG Academy holding-down the #2 spot, there may be some changes after a huge weekend of upcoming games. Nevada’s Bishop Gorman at #3 travels to Texas to take-on #5 Cedar Hill, while IMG will square-off with #4 Grayson from Georgia. Both of those games will be televised by ESPN.
The poll awards points to a team on the basis of its ranking in each poll. For example, the #1 team receives 25 points, the #2 team receives 24 points and so forth.
Our media compilation poll is released every Tuesday.
