High School Football America 100 Powered by NFL Play Football

There’s nothing like those Friday night lights! We teamed up with High School Football America to present the 100 best teams in the nation every week.

About the Rankings

The High School Football America 100, powered by NFL Play Football, uses a proprietary algorithm to rank the top teams in the nation and crown an unofficial national champion at the end of the season.

This is the ninth year that HSFA has used the algorithm to create its rankings.

Current Rankings (Week 9)

October 18, 2021

Three top 25 teams — No. 14 Cathedral (Indiana), No. 15 St. Edward (Ohio), and No. 24 Denton Guyer (Texas)suffered their first losses of the season in Week 9, scrambling the top of the High School Football America 100 powered by NFL Play Football.

Cathedral, the 2020 5A champion in Indiana, lost to No. 8 Center Grove (IN), the state's defending 6A champ. The 21-6 victory pushed Center Grove’s win streak to 23 straight heading into the opening round of the postseason. Cathedral fell 15 spots to No. 29 in this week's rankings.

St. Edward entered the week having won seven of its last eight games by double digits, but slipped in overtime to No. 100 Archbishop Moeller (OH). St. Edward dropped 12 spots to No. 27, while Moeller climbed 36 spots to No. 64.

Denton Guyer’s 38-31 upset at the hands of No. 63 Allen (TX) gave the Eagles the lead in Texas' District 5-6A. Allen ascended to No. 40, while Denton Guyer fell to No. 42.

St. Ignatius (Ohio) re-entered the Top 100 at No. 90 after surprising defending Division I champ St. Xavier, who fell four places to No. 35. And McCallie (Tennessee) broke into the HSFA 100 at No. 99.

Past Rankings

The High School Football America 100, powered by NFL Play Football, held steady this week with just a few big movers. 

The biggest shake-up in the rankings came after No. 22 Corner Canyon (Utah) lost to Lone Peak, snapping the Chargers’ 48-game win streak. Central Canyon tumbled 72 spots to No. 94 this week.

Trinity Christian Academy (Jacksonville, FL) climbed back into the Top 100 after knocking-off No. 36 American Heritage (Florida). TCA, which was ranked No. 36 two weeks ago, checks back in at No. 84 this week.

Along with TCA, several new teams entered the top 100. Bolles School (Florida) is ranked No. 78 this week, its highest ranking ever. Los Alamitos (California) also cracked the top 100 for the first time, at No. 99. Archbishop Moeller earned the No. 100 spot after beating then-No. 97 St. Ignatius by going for 2 on the final play of overtime.

The first October High School Football America 100, powered by NFL Play Football, gives a clear idea of the national championship chase.

Top-ranked Mater Dei took control of its destiny with its 42-21 win over No. 4 St. John Bosco. If the Monarchs win a California Open Division title, Mater Dei will capture its third national title in the last five years.

However, the Monarchs still have four Trinity League regular season games left. And in the postseason, they're likley to face another game against St. John Bosco.

This week, the Monarchs will play No. 127 Orange Lutheran, followed by an October 15 matchup against No. 95 Santa Margarita. On October 23, Mater Dei will play arch-rival Servite, ranked at No. 24.

Right behind Mater Dei are a pair of two-time defending state champs — Westlake (Texas) at No. 2 and Thompson (Alabama) at No. 3.

St. John Bosco held on to the No. 4 spot in the latest rankings and will try to bounce back from the Mater Dei loss this week against JSerra, the only Trinity League team not ranked nationally.

Defending national champ IMG Academy (Florida) rounds out the Top 5. The Ascenders play three more teams in our national rankings — No. 21 St. Frances Academy (Maryland), No. 56 East St. Louis (Illinois) and No. 120 Auburn (Alabama).

There are five new teams in the HSFA 100 this week — DePaul (New Jersey) at No. 93, Santa Margarita (California) at No. 95, Mill Creek (Georgia) at No. 96, Rockwall-Heath (Texas) at No. 98 and Bryant (Arkansas) at No. 99.

Week 6 was relatively calm for the High School Football America 100, powered by NFL Play Football.

The only Top 25 team to lose was two-time defending North Carolina class 4AA champ Chambers, which lost 16-10 to Hough in a battle of unbeatens.

Chambers dropped from No. 12 to No. 51. Hough is the biggest climber of the week, ascending 35 spots to No. 49.

The other big mover this week is Cocoa (FL), who overcame a 28-7 first quarter deficit to top No. 50 Treasure Coast (FL) 56-55 in double overtime.

Cocoa went two on the final play of the second OT. The gutsy call let the Tigers leap 27 spots this week to No. 52.

This week, top-ranked Mater Dei (CA) travels to No. 4 St. John Bosco (CA) in a collosal matchup.

Five weeks into the high school football season, the only thing certain is nothing is for certain. 

This past weekend was another topsy-turvy one, with three Top-25 teams losing for the first time this year and shaking up the High School Football America 100, powered by NFL Play Football.

No. 7 Gonzaga (Washington, DC) was the highest-ranked team to lose. The Eagles were beaten soundly by No. 49 St. Joseph's Prep (Pennsylvania) by a 35-7 margin. St. Joseph's, the three-time defending Pennsylvania 6A champs, rebounded after a loss to Milton (Georgia) last week and moved up to No. 47. Gonzaga dropped to No. 55.

No. 12 Bishop Gorman (Nevada) lost in dramatic fashion as Hamilton (Arizona) scored three times in the final 65 seconds to shock the Gaels 25-24. Hamilton climbed from No. 46 to No. 20 this week, and Gorman slipped nine spots to No. 21.

Through the first five weeks of the season, 12 of the Preseason Top 100 have suffered losses.

New to the Top 25 this week is St. Peter's Prep (New Jersey) at No. 23. The Marauders are a perfect 4-0 after beating previously unbeaten Seton Hall Prep 22-21 in double overtime.

There are four new teams this week in the HSFA 100 — Greenville Christian (Mississippi) at No. 89, Katy Tompkins (Texas) at No. 98, Bartram Trail (Florida) at No. 99, and Carmel (Indiana) at No. 100.

For the second week in a row, four highly-ranked teams in the High School Football America Top 100 tasted defeat.

Losses by No. 4 St. Thomas Aquinas (Florida), No. 21 La Salle (Ohio), No. 24 Good Counsel (Maryland) and No. 25 Denton Ryan (Texas) shook up the Top 100 for Week 3, powered by NFL Play Football.

Jesuit High School (Tampa, FL) secured a last second 24-21 win over St. Thomas Aquinas. The win elevated the Tigers into the Top 25 for the first time ever, moving from No. 91 to No. 24. The previously fourth-ranked Raiders, who traveled to Tampa last minute for the game, dropped to No. 25.

Also charging into the Top 25 is Nevada's Bishop Gorman. Gorman moved up 35 spots to No. 20 this week after a heart-stopping one-point win on Saturday night in Naples, Florida against Miami Central (Florida), who dropped to No. 31.

Central’s 0-2 start is its worst in over 15 years. However, the Rockets' losses have been against two highly ranked opponents — No. 5 St. John Bosco (California) and Gorman.

Corona Centennial (California), which couldn’t play its scheduled regular season opener against Mater Dei due to COVID-19 protocols, rose into the Top 100 to No. 47. The Huskies beat former No. 46 Sierra Canyon (California) 35-14. The Trailblazers dropped to No. 102.

The top three — Mater Dei, Westlake (Texas), and Thompson (Alabama) — all held their spots this week. Defending national champ IMG Academy (Florida) moved from No. 5 to No. 4 after blasting former No. 21 La Salle (Ohio) 58-7. The Ascenders will return to Bradenton to host No. 32 Northwestern (Florida) and No. 45 Jones (Orlando, FL) in the next two weeks.

Creekside (Georgia) is making its first ever appearance in the Top 100, coming in at No. 79 this week after season opening wins of over defending 7A champ Grayson and Westlake this past weekend. Also new to the Week 3 rankings are Imhotep Charter (Pennsylvania) at No. 84, Atascocita (Texas) at No. 87, East St. Louis (Illinois) at No. 90 and Grayson (Georgia) at No. 93.

Eden James is following in his father’s footsteps.

The 5-10, 180-pound running back — and son of 2020 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Edgerrin James — ran for 267 yards and two touchdowns for Treasure Coast (Port St. Lucie, Florida) in a 29-21 upset of defending Florida 5A champ American Heritage.

Eden James currently has nine college scholarship offers, including from the University of Miami (his dad’s alma mater) and all three military academies. And his big night helped Treasure Coast break into the Week 2 High School Football America 100, powered by NFL Play Football. The team entered the Week 2 rankings at No. 61, after being ranked No. 149 after Week 1. 

American Heritage (Plantation, Florida), coached by NFL Legend Patrick Surtain, entered the game ranked No. 15. But after the upset, American Heritage slipped to No. 64 in Week 2's rankings.

In addition to Treasure Coast, there are four other new teams in the Top 100.

Atlanta's Westlake High School jumped from No. 161 to No. 63 after a hard-fought road win against former No. 38 Colquitt County (Georgia).

Georgia's North Cobb climbed 38 spots to No. 72 this week after beating former No. 43 Milton (Georgia) on national television Friday night.

Bartram Trail (Florida) rose 13 spots to No. 98 this week. The Bears will test that ranking against No. 36 Columbus (Miami, Florida) on Friday.

Auburn High (Alabama) also entered the rankings at No. 99 after being ranked No. 109 last week.

Aside from the Bartram Trail/Columbus matchup, there are eleven other head-to-head HSFA 100 matchups this weekend.

  • No. 2 Westlake (Texas) vs. No. 53 Euless Trinity (Texas)
  • No. 5 IMG Academy (Florida) vs. No. 21 La Salle (Ohio)
  • No. 9 St. Joseph's Prep (Pennsylvania) vs. No. 81 Milton (Georgia)

Four losses inside the Top 25 shook up the High School Football America 100, powered by NFL Play Football. 

Preseason No. 13 Lowndes (Georgia), No. 15 Trinity (Kentucky), No. 17 Grayson (Georgia), and No. 22 Miami Central (Florida) all lost their season openers over the weekend.

The most shocking defeat was when unranked Creekside (Georgia) beat defending Georgia 7A champ Grayson, 19-14. The loss knocked the Rams all the way down to No. 147 this week. Creekside made its first-ever appearance in our national rankings at No. 136.

Lowndes was the highest-ranked team in Georgia before suffering an overtime defeat to Walton (Georgia). Lowndes slipped to No. 77 after the loss, and Walton, which was honorable mention in HSFA's preseason rankings, entered the HSFA 100 at No. 75.

Trinity fell to preseason No. 154 Carmel (Indiana), which crossed state lines to hand the Shamrocks a loss after trailing 17-0. Carmel climbed to No. 72, and Trinity tumbled to No. 76. 

Miami Central's loss was on the west coast to California powerhouse St. John Bosco, which moved up one spot to No. 6 in the nation this week. The Rockets fell eight spots this week and will try to rebound this week when it plays No. 60 Bishop Gorman (Nevada) in Naples, Florida.

The other new addition to the Top 100 is Elder (Ohio), which moved from No. 101 to No. 100 after beating Covington Catholic (Kentucky). 

Florida and Texas open their regular seasons this week. HSFA doesn't use the Florida Kickoff Classics in its proprietary rankings algorithm, since they don't count toward a team’s overall record.

In addition to the Gorman/Miami Central game, there will be nine other head-to-head matchups in the Top 100, including a showdown between No. 1 Mater Dei (California) and No. 14 Duncanville (Texas).

Here are the other Top 100 head-to-heads:

  • No. 32 St. Frances Academy (Maryland) at No. 4 St. Thomas Aquinas (Florida)
  • No. 6 Southlake Carroll (Texas) at No. 86 Highland Park (Texas)
  • No. 13 Bergen Catholic (New Jersey) at No. 16 Archbishop Hoban (Ohio)
  • No. 20 Oakland (Tennessee) at No. 85 Madison-Ridgeland Academy (Mississippi)
  • No. 25 Cardinal Gibbons (Florida) at No. 90 Venice (Florida)
  • No. 42 Good Counsel (Maryland) at No. 57 St. Joseph Regional (Montvale, New Jersey)
  • No. 100 Elder (Ohio) at No. 50 Pickerington Central (Ohio)
  • No. 80 Arlington Martin (Texas) at No. 82 Lake Travis (Texas)

Two-time defending national champ Mater Dei (Santa Ana, California) begins the season as the No. 1 team in the High School Football America 100 national rankings.

The Monarchs won back-to-back HSFA national titles in 2017 and 2018. Led by legendary head coach Bruce Rollinson, who owns 315 lifetime high school football coaching victories, Mater Dei is coming-off a perfect 5-0 spring season. There wasn’t a postseason in California due to COVID-19 protocols.

Falling in behind Mater Dei at No. 2 is two-time defending Texas high school football state champ Westlake High (Austin, Texas).

The Chaparrals are led by head coach Todd Dodge, who has won six state championships. Last month, Dodge announced that he will be retiring at the end of the 2021 high school football season.

No. 3 Thompson (Alabaster, Alabama) will be going after a third straight Class 7A title this season. Head coach Mark Freeman brings a lifetime record of 223-51 in 22 seasons as a head coach. Freeman has won four Alabama High School Athletic Association state championships to go along with four state titles in the Alabama Independent School Association.

Florida-power St. Thomas Aquinas (Fort Lauderdale, Florida) checks-in the preseason national rankings at No. 4. The Raiders have won back-to-back Class 7A state championships. STA had 11 alumni in the NFL at the start of the season, most of any high school.

Rounding out the top five is IMG Academy (Bradenton, Florida), winners of the 2020-21 national championship. It was the Ascenders' first-ever national crown.

During the offseason, IMG promoted NFL Legend Pepper Johnson from defensive coordinator to head coach. Johnson won two Super Bowls during his 13-year NFL career.

Overall, Texas leads the way with 19 teams in the HSFA 100, followed by Florida with 15. Georgia has the third most teams in the Top 100 with nine.

Powered by NFL Play Football, the High School Football America 100 is created using HSFA’s proprietary algorithm.
