There is not too much movement this week as only two teams in the Top 25 lost and that was St. Joseph Regional to St. Frances Academy and St. John’s to Mater Dei. The loss drops the Green Knights and Cadets a few spots. The biggest mover of the week was Lowndes who jumps into the Top 15. The Vikings beat rival Valdosta 24 – 0 and it’s looking like they are the team to beat in Georgia this year.

For the first time all year there isn’t a marquee matchup of ranked teams. There are a couple of really good out of state games. Those games include Rockledge (FL) heading to Ohio to take on St. Ignatius, Edgewater (FL) taking on Marietta, Trinity (KY) heading to Indiana to take on Cathedral and Winton Woods (OH) taking on Christian Brothers from Missouri. These are the type of games that show which states are better than others and have a big impact on the rankings even if the teams themselves aren’t ranked. There are a couple of big in state games in Florida with rivals American Heritage and Cardinal Gibbons squaring off and the two best teams in Miami battling for 305 bragging rights between Central and Northwestern.
