Prep Force 2018 National High School Football Rankings – Week 3

Week 2 is in the books and we are starting to get a little more clarity thanks to some big out of state matchups. The weather reeked havoc on game across the eastern part of the country. Some Friday games were postponed and had to be completed on Saturday. Two ranked teams, St. Frances Academy and Good Counsel, had their games canceled. It was a big blow for St. Frances as this was their toughest game of the year. We know the Panthers are a good team but they will be very tough to rank considering their schedule. Another game that had to be finished on Saturday was St. John’s 42-14 win at previously ranked Hoover. We have the Cadets ranked higher than any of the national polls at #2 and after that game we feel a little better about that. The Freedom Bowl and “Gwinnett vs The World” was a bit of a disaster for most of the Georgia teams that participated. Grayson, North Gwinnett and Buford all lost in games that they were considered favorites in. Two of the three teams that beat them, Bergen Catholic and Deerfield Beach, break into the rankings this week. The Crusader make the highest debut at #12. The one Georgia team from those games that impressed was Milton. The Eagles come in at #23 after their 42-17 thrashing of Cardinal Gibbons. North Shore is the other new team in the rankings this week thanks to their victory over Katy.

This week is highlighted by #11 Miami Central heading to Washington DC to play St. John’s. Check out who the experts pick in those games plus the other Top 10 games of the week in the Pickem Contest later this week.
