The top storylines, news, notes and milestones from the week that was in high school football.

Team of the Week
Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) made its season debut in the Top 25 after a 42-26 win against then-No. 22 Mission Viejo in the tough CIF-SS Division I quarterfinals, snapping the Diablos’ 39-game winning streak. The No. 20 Cougars will try to slow down No. 3 Mater Dei (Santa Ana) in this weekend’s semifinals.

Worth Noting
The longest winning streak in the nation among all teams belongs to regionally ranked Kimberly (Wis.). The Papermakers erased a 14-point deficit to beat Franklin, 29-14, for the Division 1 state crown and 56th win in a row. That’s best in the nation – even among non-11-man teams – after 8-man behemoth Pahranagat Valley (Alamo, Nev.) had its 104-game unbeaten streak ended with a 68-46 state-title game loss to Spring Mountain (Las Vegas). The second-longest current streak belongs to the nation’s No. 1 team, Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas). The Gaels have won 52 in a row. … Melbourne Central Catholic survived a 69-62, nine-OT classic over Clearwater Central Catholic in the Class 3A playoffs. The game was tied 21-21 at the end of regulation. … Then-No. 20 Jenks (Okla.) lost to now-regionally ranked rival Union (Tulsa), 45-21, in the Class 6AI state semifinals, ending its bid for a fifth consecutive state title. Either Jenks or Union has won every championship in Oklahoma’s largest classification since 1996. Union will try to extend that streak – and avenge its only loss of the season – against regionally ranked Norman North on Dec. 2. … No. 15 Bingham (South Jordan) and No. 18 Salt Lake City East finished unbeaten regular seasons with Utah’s Class 5A and 4A state titles, respectively. Bingham’s 17-10 win over regionally ranked Lone Peak (Highland) was its second against the Knights this season. The Miners have five state titles since 2009. Meanwhile, East earned its second consecutive 4A crown with a 48-20 win against previously unbeaten Springville. The Leopards have 19 wins in a row by double digits versus in-state foes. Senior running back Jalen Warren had 206 yards in the game and became the first player in Utah history to surpass 3,000 yards in a season.

For the Record
Senior Shon Mitchell of Oscar Smith (Chesapeake, Va.) became his state’s all-time leader in passing yardage. The William & Mary commit threw for 109 yards in a 43-21 Class 6A playoff win over Bayside (Virginia Beach) to increase his total to 10,766 yards. The old record was held by former Oscar Smith star Phillip Sims. … Nick Gerber of Levelland (Texas) broke a single-season state mark for touchdown passes. The senior had six scoring strikes in an 82-73 Class 4A-I playoff win against Decatur. His total is now 73 passing touchdowns, two better than the old record. … Brett Huber of Foran (Milford, Conn.) smashed his state’s record for career receptions in a 47-30 win over Creed/Career/Whitney Tech (New Haven). Huber had 19 catches in the game to increase his career total to a record 204. His 102 receptions this season also tied the single-season record. … Regionally ranked West Allegheny (Imperial, Pa.) edged McKeesport, 38-37, for the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League Class 5A crown. The win earned WAHS coach Bob Palko a record eighth WPIAL crown.

About the PrepNation National Prep Poll
The PrepNation National Prep Poll is a continuation of World Feature Syndicate’s National Prep Poll, which was published and distributed to the Associated Press and other news organizations from 1987 to 2015.

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 poll distributed to newspapers and websites around the United States by the Associated Press.

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.

About was originally launched August 1, 2001 by Jamie DeMoney for the purpose of creating a permanent online home for the National Prep Poll football and boys basketball rankings.
