URBANDALE, Iowa -- The first week of high school football on the mainland came and went without creating much of ripple in the National Prep Poll. The entire Top 25 remained the same and only three teams fell out of the regional rankings.
The entire nation has the opportunity to watch six nationally ranked teams kick off the season this weekend. ESPN and its family of networks will show games featuring No. 1 Trinity (Euless, Texas), No. 2 Plant (Tampa, Fla.), No. 9 Grant (Sacramento, Calif.), No. 12 Good Counsel (Olney, Md), No. 13 St. Xavier (Cincinnati), and No. 21 Manatee (Bradenton, Fla.).
