Week 10 is in the books and that meant the end of the regular season for many teams around the country including those in California, Florida, Ohio, New Jersey and others. Only 1 team lost this week and that was Dematha who lost a close game to #14 St. John’s. Most of the national polls will likely drop the Stags from the rankings but not Prep Force. Our philosophy is to rank the top 25 teams in the country and we feel like the Stags are one of those. All of their losses are to teams that are ranked ahead of them and two of those losses are by a combined 6 points. We were questioned when we kept St. John’s ranked after their losses and we see how that has worked out. You either think the WCAC is an elite conference or you don’t. We think even though they may be down a bit this year they are still the second best conference in America and we will not penalize them for scheduling tough.

Elsewhere Lowndes was impressive in their 28-17 win over Colquitt County. IMG easily dispatched of Hoover 38-7 and stays in the Top 5 for now. Chandler barely got by Hamilton and drops a spot to 25. There was one “upset” of a team that was ranked in the other national polls with John Curtis losing to Archbishop Rummel. While we think both are fine teams we don’t consider either Top 25 worthy at this point. The rest of the games were expected blowouts which caused no movement. With it being he first round of playoffs for the states mentioned before there are not a lot of high profile games this week but there are some intriguing matchups. There always seems to be one or two upsets this time of year that seem to come out of nowhere. Check out who the experts pick in the Top 10 Games Of The Week on Wednesday by following us on Twitter @PrepForce1 and like us on Facebook PrepForce.
