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.

Week 14 Rankings

Updated on November 30, 2022

For the first time ever, Miami Central (Florida) sits atop the High School Football America 100 national rankings, powered by NFL Play Football. The Rockets move from No. 2 to No. 1 in the latest rankings after reigning national champ Mater Dei (California) lost to St. John Bosco (California) 24-22 Friday at the historic Rose Bowl.

Miami Central has an extremely narrow lead over St. John Bosco, which now sits at No. 2 in our rankings that are created with High School Football America’s proprietary algorithm.

Miami Central is a perfect 12-0 with a state semifinal game coming up in Florida’s 2M classification this weekend against No. 156 Lakewood. If the Rockets win, they’ll face the winner of the game between No. 8 American Heritage (Plantation, Florida) and No. 223 Bolles School in the state championship in mid-December.

After a week off, St. John Bosco will take-on No. 33 Serra (San Mateo) on December 10 for California’s Open Division championship. Florida’s St. Thomas Aquinas (No. 3) and Chaminade-Madonna (No. 4) are also in the national championship hunt. After seeing its 29-game win streak come to an end, Mater Dei falls to No. 5 in the latest rankings.

Below is the new Top 100.

Past Rankings

Updated on November 23, 2022

With No. 2 Buford (Georgia) and No. 3 St. Frances Academy (Maryland) losing last weekend, the latest High School Football America 100, powered by NFL Play Football, has whole new look.

Aside from reigning HSFA national champ Mater Dei (California) remaining at No. 1, there’s a complete shuffle from No. 2 through No. 12. And, only five teams in the Top 100 held their previous rankings.

The road to a national championship still runs through Santa Ana, California where top-ranked Mater Dei is within two wins of winning its fourth national title in six years. This week, the Monarchs will clash with new No. 3 St. John Bosco for the California Interscholastic Federation’s Southern Section Division 1 title at the historic Rose Bowl in Pasadena.

Back on October 7, MD beat the Braves 17-7. This will be fifth time in the last decade that these two programs have met twice in a season.

In three of those years, the team that won the regular season game then lost the playoff matchup. In 2017, Mater Dei won Parts I and II. In 2013, Bosco won both games.

Miami Central (Florida) is now knocking-on the No. 1 door. The Rockets have moved-up from No. 4 to No. 2 in the latest rankings created with our proprietary algorithm.

MC has several ranked opponents in front of them. This week in the 2M state quarterfinals, the Rockets play No. 273 Norland, a team they beat 53-7 on October 13. If the Rockets advance to the state semifinals, they’ll face the winner of the game between No. 9 American Heritage (Plantation, Florida) and No. 15 Cardinal Gibbons. CG has won two straight Florida high school football state titles.

Central isn’t the only Florida team with a shot at a national title. Three-time defending state champ St. Thomas Aquinas is currently sitting at No. 4. Chaminade-Madonna, winners of four state titles in five years, is ranked No. 5.

Where did Buford and St. Frances end-up after their first losses of the year? SFA drops five spots to No. 8. Buford falls 26 spots to No. 28 this week.

Updated November 8, 2022

The postseason begins this weekend in Florida, Georgia and Texas — and the chase for the High School Football America championship is coming down to the final six weeks of the year. 

No. 1 Mater Dei (California) has the clearest path to the championship, determined by HSFA's proprietary algorithm. This weekend, the Monarchs are back in action against No. 94 JSerra in the CIF-Southern Section Division 1 quarterfinals. Mater Dei eked out a close win against the Lions in the regular season, winning 21-13.

No. 2 Buford (Georgia) will begin its quest for a fourth straight Georgia state championship Friday night against Peachtree Ridge. If Buford advances to the state championship, the Wolves could possibly get a rematch with No. 25 Mill Creek. Buford beat the Hawks 39-27 back on October 14.

No. 3 St. Francis Academy (Maryland) only has two games remaining — including a showdown on November 18 against No. 12 IMG Academy (Florida).

No. 4 Miami Central (Florida) begin their drive for a fourth straight state in a loaded Class 2M backet that includes No. 11 American Heritage (Plantation), No. 19 Cardinal Gibbons, and No. 36 Miami Northwestern.

No. 5 St. John Bosco's hopes of a national title will rest on a possible rematch against Mater Dei for the CIF-SS Division 1 title. This Friday, Bosco plays No. 86 Orange Lutheran.

It was a fairly calm week inside the High School Football America 100, powered by NFL Play Football.

St. Edward (Ohio) re-entered the Top 25 at No. 19. The reigning Ohio Division I champs have beaten top-25 opponents in consecutive weeks—taking down then-No. 11 Archbishop Moeller and then-No. 19 Archbishop Hoban.

Colquitt County (Georgia) also moved into the Top 25, settling at No. 20. And Denton Guyer (Texas) moved up to No. 16 after an impressive 49-7 defeat of former No. 58 Allen (Texas).

Louisiana's John Curtis made a huge jump from No. 172 to No. 100 after battling back from a two-score deficit to beat then-No. 96 St. Augustine. John Curtis is led by legendary coach J.T. Curtis, who leads all high school coaches in career victories.

As the playoffs approach, here are the Top 100 rankings for this week.

Buford (Georgia) scored a statement win on Friday to secure its hold on the No. 2 spot in the High School Football America 100, powered by NFL Play Football.

The Wolves led former No. 20 Mill Creek from start to finish, winning 39-27 before 10,000 fans and college football coaches like Georgia's Kirby Smart and Ohio State's Brian Day.

Of Buford’s seven wins, five of them have come against teams that are currently ranked in the HSFA 300.

In other Top 100 action, Archbishop Moeller (Ohio) lost 6-0 to defending Division I state champ St. Edward. Moeller tumbled from No. 11 to No. 26 this week, while St. Edward moved up three notches to No. 36.

Central (Phenix City, Alabama) makes the big move 14 spots to No. 52 after handing former No. 38 Auburn its first loss of the year. The 38-17 loss dropped Auburn to No. 59 this week.

Next week, No. 4 Miami Central will look to retain its undefeated record and lofty ranking against No. 20 Columbus in a South Florida showdown.

Mater Dei (California) took control of their destiny on Friday with a huge 17-7 win against then-No. 2 St. John Bosco (California).

Mater Dei retained the No. 1 spot in the latest HSFA 100, powered by NFL Play Football. Bosco slipped to No. 5. Mater Dei will be challenged again in the next several weeks, with No. 87 Orange Lutheran, No. 91 Santa Margarita, and longtime rival Servite on deck. 

Buford (Georgia) moved up to No. 2. The Wolves, who have won three straight Georgia state titles, face a big test against No. 20 Mill Creek (Georgia) on Friday night.

Maryland’s St. Frances Academy moved to No. 3 this week. St. Francis will be highly favored to win its next three games before closing out the regular season against No. 14 IMG Academy (Florida). Miami Central is No. 4 in the HSFA 100 after an impressive 42-7 win over arch-rival Miami Northwestern on Friday.

Updated October 4, 2022

The chase for the 2022 High School Football America national championship is about to heat up.

Reigning national champ and No. 1 Mater Dei (California) plays No. 2 St. John Bosco (California) on Friday. The winner will have the inside track to the national championship, determined by HSFA's proprietary algorithm.

Mater Dei won the HSFA championship in 2017, 2018, and 2021. St. John Bosco won the title in 2019.

No. 136 JSerra gave Mater Dei all it could handle last week, but the Monarchs prevailed 21-13. 

No. 4 St. Frances Academy (Maryland) also survived a scare on Friday. After traveling nearly 5,000 miles from Baltimore to Hawaii, the Panthers needed two scores in the final eight minutes to secure a comeback 22-15 win against reigning Hawaii Open Division champ Kahuku.

Georgia’s Buford sits at No. 3 after a perfect 6-0 start that includes beating four teams inside the Top 300. After a bye week this week, the three-time defending state champs will play No. 20 Mill Creek on October 14.

Updated September 11, 2022

A pair of top 25 games and a series of upsets shook up the High School Football America 100, powered by NFL Play Football. 

Chaminade-Madonna (Florida) moved up two spots to No. 8 after knocking off former No. 24 Miami Northwestern 42-14 on Saturday. Chaminade Madonna scored 35 unanswered points to blow the game open. Another big matchup looms next week when the Lions will face No. 14 American Heritage (Plantation, Florida).

Ohio’s Archbishop Moeller picked up five spots this week, sitting at No. 13 after beating former No. 12 Good Counsel (Maryland) 39-31 in the Ironton Gridiron Classic.

New to the Top 25 this week is Grayson (Georgia). The 25th-ranked Rams are off to a 4-0 start after back-to-back wins against South Carolina opponents.

This week’s big mover is Alabama's Opelika High School. The Bulldogs soared from No. 300 to No. 71 after beating former No. 27 Central (Phenix City, Alabama) 17-14 in overtime.

Creekside (Georgia) also vaulted into the Top 100 after surprising former No. 44 East St. Louis (Illinois) 10-8. The Tribe moves from No. 192 to No. 89. East St. Louis, which nearly upset No. 4 St. Frances Academy (Maryland) in its season opener, fell to No. 90.

Updated September 7, 2022

The top teams in the nation remained unchanged in Week 2 of the High School Football America 100, powered by NFL Play Football. 

Defending HSFA national champ Mater Dei (California) strengthened its hold on the top spot by beating former No. 17 Corona Centennial (California). The win came on the heels of the Monarchs' 24-21 come-from-behind win over No. 13 Bishop Gorman two weeks ago.

Mater Dei is a heavy favorite to win its next three games heading into a massive showdown against No. 2 St. John Bosco (California) on October 7. No. 3 Buford (Georgia) is also in the national championship chase after its third straight win over a nationally-ranked team.

The top fifteen teams held their spots from last week, but there are two new teams in the Top 25. Miami's Northwestern enters at No. 24. This week, the Bulls will test that ranking against No. 10 Chaminade-Madonna (Florida).

Chandler took the No. 25 spot after cruising past former No. 89 Cathedral Catholic (San Diego, California) 63-7.

Overall, the HSFA 100 welcomes eight new teams this week:

  • No. 66 Montgomery Bell Academy (Tennessee)
  • No. 83 Trinity (Kentucky)
  • No. 93 Arlington Martin (Texas)
  • No. 96 Santa Margarita (California)
  • No. 97 Loyola Academy (Illinois)
  • No. 98 Westfield (Texas)
  • No. 99 Cedar Grove (Georgia)
  • No. 100 Maryville (Tennessee)

Updated on August 29, 2022. 

As the calendar changes to September, the top five high school teams in the country remain unchanged.

But that doesn't mean the early weeks of the season have been drama-free for the top teams in the High School Football America 100, powered by NFL Play Football.

Reigning national champ Mater Dei (California) is No. 1 after a 24-21 come-from-behind win over No. 13 Bishop Gorman in Las Vegas. This week, the Monarchs will be challenged with another tough road contest against No. 17 Corona Centennial (California).

No. 2 St. John Bosco picked up huge win over three-time HSFA national champ Allen (Texas). The game was never in doubt as the Braves routed the Eagles 52-14.

Buford (Georgia) is off to a 2-0 start that includes an impressive 38-7 win over preseason No. 17 Thompson (Alabama). This week, the Wolves will challenge No. 20 North Cobb (Georgia).

No. 4 St. Frances Academy (Maryland) received a scare this weekend at the NFL Alumni Academy Freedom Bowl in Canton, Ohio, home of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The Panthers edged No. 66 East St. Louis 20-13. This weekend, SFA travels to Texas to play No. 16 DeSoto, which opened its season in the Nike Kickoff Classic. The Eagles beat St. Augustine (Louisiana) 35-10.

No. 5 Bergen Catholic (New Jersey) will head to Arizona this week to face No. 21 Saguaro. Both teams won state titles in 2021.

There are two new teams in the Top 25 from HSFA’s preseason rankings. Lipscomb Academy (Tennessee), coached by former NFL Super Bowl MVP Trent Dilfer, sits at No. 22 this week, up seven spots from its preseason ranking. Dilfer’s squad has beaten preseason No. 65 Milton (Georgia) and three-time defending champ Thompson, which fell from No. 17 to No. 52 after an 0-2 start.

Also new to the Top 25 this week is Ohio’s Archbishop Moeller at No. 23.

Overall, there are nine new teams to the Top 100:

  • No. 79 Brownsburg (Indiana)
  • No. 80 Auburn (Alabama)
  • No. 86 Skyridge (Utah)
  • No. 88 Pittsburg (California)
  • No. 90 Winton Woods (Ohio)
  • No. 92 Orange Lutheran (California)
  • No. 93 Timpview (Utah)
  • No. 98 Collins Hill (Georgia)
  • No. 100 Warren Central (Indiana)

Updated December 20, 2021

For the third time in five years, Mater Dei (Santa Ana, California) is High School Football America's national champion.

The Monarchs, who are back on top after winning consecutive HSFA titles in 2017 and 2018, spent the entire 2021 season ranked No. 1 in the HSFA 100, powered by NFL Play Football.

Mater Dei's perfect 12-0 season was punctuated by 10 wins against teams ranked in the HSFA top 200 — No. 7 Servite (twice), No. 8 St. John Bosco, No. 9 Duncanville, No. 20 Corona Centennial, No. 81 Serra (San Mateo) No. 91 Orange Lutheran, No. 143 Norco, No. 144 Santa Margarita and No. 188 Liberty.

Right behind Mater Dei is three-time Texas high school football state champ Westlake. The Chaparrals wrapped-up a perfect 16-0 season Saturday night with a 40-21 win over No. 30 Denton Guyer for the Class 6A Division II title.

Like Mater Dei, Westlake never budged from their preseason No. 2 ranking. The Chaparrals' state title concluded the legendary coaching career of Todd Dodge, who retires with seven Texas high school football championships. Dodge leaves the game with a 40-game win streak.

Bergen Catholic finishes No. 3 in our national rankings after capturing New Jersey's Non-Public A championship.

Fourth-ranked North Shore beat No. 9 Duncanville on Saturday night to win the school’s third state title in the last four years in Texas' largest classification.

Florida 6A champ Jesuit finishes 2021 at No. 5. The Tigers, who started the year at the fringes of the HSFA 100, ended with a perfect 15-0 mark and won the school’s first state title since 1968.

St. Thomas Aquinas, whose lone loss on the season came at the hands of Jesuit on Sept. 3, won its third straight Florida 7A championship on Friday and finishes the season ranked No. 6 in the HSFA 100.

Servite (No. 7) and St. John Bosco (No. 8) fall in behind St. Thomas Aquinas, followed by No. 9 Duncanville. Two-time Tennessee state champ Oakland rounds out the Top 10.

Florida had seven teams in the top 25 and 17 teams in the top 100, leading both categories. Texas placed three teams in the top 25 and 15 in the top 100. Four California teams placed in the top 25, and 10 ranked in the top 100. In all, 23 different states, plus the District of Columbia, are represented in the HSFA 100.
