The National Prep Football
Poll is compiled by Jamie DeMoney of XOS Digital with input from sportswriters,
experts, and coaches. The Week 10 national Top 25 and regional Top 15's follow
with current won-loss records:
St. John Bosco HS (Bellflower, Calif.),
8-0 (Last week: 1)
Bishop Gorman HS (Las Vegas),
Colquitt County HS (Moultrie, Ga.),
Centennial HS (Corona, Calif.),
Allen HS (Texas), 8-0 (5)
Cedar Hill HS (Texas), 8-0
Trinity HS (Euless, Texas),
De La Salle HS (Concord, Calif.),
Ocean Lakes HS (Virginia Beach, Va.),
Katy HS (Texas), 8-0 (10)
IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.),
Grayson HS (Loganville, Ga.),
Clay-Chalkville HS (Pinson, Ala.),
South Panola HS (Batesville, Miss.),
Gonzaga HS (Washington),
Mater Dei HS (Santa Ana, Calif.),
Chandler HS (Ariz.), 8-1
St. Edward HS (Lakewood, Ohio),
DeMatha (Hyattsville, Md.),
Male HS (Louisville, Ky.),
Gilman School (Baltimore),
Wayne HS (Huber Heights, Ohio),
Steele HS (Cibolo, Texas),
American Heritage HS (Plantation, Fla.), 7-1 (25)
Bishop Gorman makes its case: Should current No. 1 St. John Bosco falter, the defending Prep Poll champion
would likely repeat. The No. 2 Gaels ended regionally ranked Don Bosco Prep’s
three-game winning streak against nationally ranked out-of-state opponents with
a 30-16 home win. Twelve of Bishop Gorman’s 33 consecutive wins are against
IMG Academy: Big North United champion? The No. 11 Ascenders topped Paramus Catholic, 28-20, for their third win over a top-notch New Jersey opponent in the last four games. IMG is
now 4-0 against former Top 25 teams this season.
Steele survives: The
No. 23 Knights held off then-unbeaten Converse Judson, 20-13, to take a step
closer to their sixth straight season with double-digit victories. Judson is a
five-time state champion but is now 0-6 against Steele.
Center Grove moves in: The
first home loss in nearly a decade for then-No. 15 Jenks (Okla.) allowed a different team of Trojans to march into the national poll at No. 25. Center Grove handled
first-round playoff opponent Columbus North, 34-7, to improve to 10-0.
MLK is King of Detroit Public League: The
regionally ranked Crusaders edged rival Cass Tech, 27-25, and moved up one spot
in the Midwest Top 15. King won without three starters who were suspended for
participating in an on-field fight the week before.
Oklahoma’s all-time leading passer is Fine:Mason Fine of Locust Grove became the Sooner State’s
career leader in passing yardage. The senior threw for 457 yards during a 56-21
win against Claremore Sequoyah, giving him 11,658 yards for his career. Fine
also holds four other state passing records.
one …Weather was the only
real winner in a pivotal Texas District 16-5A matchup between Lufkin and Ennis.
Unrelenting lightning strikes and heavy rain caused two and a half hours of weather delays before the head coaches for the two teams finally decided to let a coinflip decide their teams’ fate. Lufkin won the flip – and therefore the game –
before making a 150-mile bus trip back to East Texas.

About the PrepNation National Prep Poll
PrepNation National Prep Poll is a continuation of World Feature Syndicate’s
National Prep Poll, which was published and distributed to the Associated Press

The National Prep Poll is second only to the USA Today Super 25 as the longest
continually published weekly high school rankings. While a product of World
Features Syndicate (1987-2015), the National Prep Poll was the only high school

Before authoring rankings for Student Sports and ESPN, National High School
Sports Hall of Fame journalist Doug Huff compiled the National Prep Poll
rankings from 1987 until 1999. Current author Jamie DeMoney has compiled the
poll since the start of the 1999 basketball season to the present.
Among the criteria used in the weekly compilation of the National Prep Poll
rankings are strength of schedule, the ability to accomplish the ultimate goal
on a team's schedule (i.e. winning a championship), impact players and performers,
a team's coaching and recent tradition.
