PrepNation 101 Preseason Countdown: No. 76 Warren Central continues the most comprehensive package of preseason high school football rankings ever published. We are counting down the PrepNation 101 Preseason High School Football Rankings, from No. 101 to No. 26, leading up to the release of the official preseason National Prep Poll on August 3.

76. Warren Central (Indianapolis)
Last season: 9-4 (one loss by forfeit), Class 5A quarterfinalist
Coach: John Hart
Key players: QB Derek Hart (6-4, 200, Sr.), RB Shakir Bell (5-7, 175, Sr.), DB James Manual (6-1, 190, Sr.), WR Mo McGee (5-11, 170, Sr.), S Jerry Boyd (6-1, 190, Sr.)
Outlook: The Warriors are well-armed and ready to contend for a fifth state championship since 2003. Hart, the coach’s son, passed for nearly 1,300 yards and 20 touchdowns last season. The secondary has a pair of sure-fire Division I prospects in Manual and Boyd.

Warren Central is hands down the team to beat in Indiana football. If Warren Central has a home game then they will give you a "show" a "performance" and once you see them play it makes you not wanna leave. Teams like Carmel are decent but trust me that is a boring team to watch. Cathedral is good and they will play anybody and i mean anybody but there also boring to watch. Center Grove and Ben Davis are alright as well but still cant hold a candle to Warren Central football. Warren will be going for there 5th state title in 7 years. Indiana 5A is wide open for a state champ but once the season begins you will see that Warren Central is head and shoulders above everyone else. Last year Carmel and Center Grove needed stars on there teams to even be ranked. Carmel had Morgan Newton a qb now playing for Kentucky and Center Grove had Jordan Lueallen a option qb now playing for georgia tech. This year neither are ranked in any polls because they have no stars, but Warren Central has no stars on there team and can still be ranked #12 in the midwest according to espn and have a spot on the prepnation top 101.Any team can win a state title"carmel" and Center grove" but you cant do it like Warren Central who is going for 5 in 7 years. you can just call warren the team of the decade in Indiana.
