High School Football Rankings
Every state but Texas has crowned their champions. That means there is only one week left in the high school football season. That should make all of us very sad. Lucky for us there is still a lot of intrigue left in the season. The Texas UIL 6A Division 1 title game pits #2 Duncanville and #6 North Shore. The game lost a little steam with Texas commit and Duncanville QB Ja’Quinden Jackson going down with an injury during last weeks convincing win over Rockwall. If Duncanville still finds a way to pull this one out with a freshman QB they will definitely have a claim to the national title.
St. John Bosco did what they needed to do by taking down De La Salle 49-28 in the California Open Division title game. The final score was a little misleading though as the Spartans were on the 2 yard line with about 4 minutes to go when they fumbled and the braves picked it up for a 96 yard TD return. That made what would’ve been a 7 point game a 21 point game. That could ultimately be the difference in the national title. We will have to see what happens.
Marietta pulled off a little bit of an upset in the Georgia 7A title taking down Lowndes 17-9. That catapults the Blue Devils into the Top 10 while dropping the Vikings a few spots. Marietta will now head to the Geico game reportedly to take on Washington’s best team Eastside Catholic. The other reported Geico game is a great one. #7 St. Louis and #8 St. Thomas Aquinas will square off in a battle of undefeated teams. If things break right and one team dominates the other they could be in the national title discussion themselves.
