Week 15 National Prep Football Poll released

WAUKEE, Iowa -- The 15th National Prep Poll of the football season includes the return to the Top 25 of two teams that were nationally ranked earlier this season. No. 24 Hudson (Ohio) inched back into the national poll after advancing to the Division I state semifinals. The Explorers would likely move much higher if they defeat No. 20 St. Edward (Lakewood) this Saturday. Also returning was No. 25 Chandler (Ariz.). The Wolves are playing in their first state championship game against rival Hamilton (Chandler) on Friday.

Week 13 National Prep Football Poll released

WAUKEE, Iowa -- The Top 25 teams listed in the latest National Prep Poll did not change from Week 12 to Week 13. This is despite previous No. 6 Paramus Catholic (N.J.) suffering its first loss. That dropped the Paladins down to No. 22 in close proximity to fellow Garden State powers No. 18 St. Peter's (Jersey City) and No. 23 Don Bosco Prep (Ramsey). The most significant move up this week belongs to Bingham (South Jordan, Utah). The No. 9 Miners have risen nine spots over the last four polls. Their only loss this season was in overtime at No. 1 Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas).

The Eagles have finished in the top spot in each of the last two seasons.
