St. Xavier (Ohio) returns to “The Other 25”

The Other 25

St. Xavier (Ohio) returns to the High School Football America Top 50 this week. The Bombers check-in at #48 after defeating former #6 Colerain in overtime.  In September, St. X, which has played the toughest schedule in the nation, lost to Colerain, also in overtime.  Colerain falls 25 spots to #31 in The Other 25, which is created using our proprietary algorithm.

St. John’s College High School (Washington, D.C.) remains at the top of the bubble for teams looking to crack the Top 25.  The Cadets hold-on at #26 thanks to its 38-21 win over former #49 Gonzaga in the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference semifinals.  It was the second week in a row that the Cadets and Eagles faced each other.  Gonzaga cracked the Top 50 last week after knocking-off SJC to end the WCAC regular season.

The biggest mover this week is Paramus Catholic (New Jersey), which climbs four spots to #30.  This weekend, the Paladins square-off with #49 Don Bosco Prep (New Jersey).  Back on October 21st, PC beat DBP 26-17
