Back In, Again

This week there will be an eight-team turnover in the RivalsHigh100, and of the eight moving in, five are programs which were ranked at one point this season.

All five of the re-entries will come in between No. 96 and No. 100, keeping the revolving door moving at the back end of the national poll.

At No. 96 will be Brandon (Miss.) High which has been outside of the poll since a Week 7 loss to Petal (Miss.) High knocked it from the top spot in the state. It has since defeated Meridian (Miss.) High and Hattiesburg (Miss.) Oak Grove to reclaim its pole position. The game this week with Oak Grove was for the No. 1 placement within the state, and it knocked Oak Grove from No. 57 to outside of the rankings.

Broken Arrow (Okla.) and Bentonville (Ark.) High will re-enter at No. 97 and 98, respectively. The pair had been ranked in the 90s earlier in the season but fell out of the rankings following Week 4. Since that time both have solidified their places within the state rankings -- Broken Arrow at No. 3 in Oklahoma and Bentonville atop Arkansas -- and have been pulled back into the rankings as the teams they lost to continue to win and move up the rankings.

Bentonville was beaten by Broken Arrow, 24-17, and then fell to Euless (Texas) Trinity, 21-13. Broken Arrow owns its win over Bentonville but fell to Tulsa (Okla.) Union, 38-21, and Jenks (Okla.) High, 28-7. Both Trinity and Union have been slowly climbing the poll, and the crossover contests helped push the two other schools back into the picture.

Hilliard (Ohio) Davidson was a team that left the rankings after a victory and has been on the outside looking in since Week 1, but it is now 9-0 and could potentially earn the top seed in its region of the Ohio Division I playoffs due to the formula that the state uses. Davidson has historically been a team that does not impress when it gets off the bus but continues to win with quality high school football players, fundamentals and coaching. It is still No. 10 in Ohio according to the RivalsHigh100 and will be earning its place during the coming weeks.

The final spot in the poll went to Bowling Green (Kent.) High. The program had never been ranked higher than No. 97 in the three prior rankings periods and stunningly fell from the poll in Week 7 despite a 91-10 victory. The program has been the top team in Kentucky for five weeks, but the overall quality of the teams in the state is down this year and that has caused its ranking to buoy.

The other three teams entering will be Suwannee (Ga.) Collins Hill, Suwanee (Ga.) Peachtree Ridge, and Murfreesboro (Tenn.) Oakland.

Leaving the RivalsHigh100 will be Santa Ana (Cali.) Mater Dei, Cleveland (Ohio) St. Ignatius, Oak Grove, Arlington (Texas) Martin, Anaheim (Cali.) Servite, Wilmette (Ill.) Loyola Academy, and Lake Zurich (Ill.) High.

1Booker T. WashingtonMiamiFL9-01
The Tornadoes will finish out the regular season with standout quarterback Treon Harris on the sidelines. Reports say he could play if needed but will rest nagging injuries for the playoffs. This week the team won 41-14 without him against Norland.
Allen continues its assault on local opponents as it beat Boyd, 49-26. The playoffs in Texas should be epic this season.
DeSoto dominated Duncanville to the tune of 55-29. The offense is one of the most explosive in the nation.
4Miami CentralMiamiFL7-14
The Rockets rolled through Carol City, 48-18. It would have been better if the game with Booker T. Washington would have happened later in the season.
5St. John BoscoBellflowerCA8-06
The Braves rolled over JSerra Catholic, 48-7. It did not get caught looking ahead to the game with Mater Dei next week.
6Junipero SerraGardenaCA8-07
Serra continued to flex its muscle in an easy win over LA Cathedral, 45-14. Seeing how the team navigates the playoffs will be interesting.
7St. Joseph'sMontvaleNJ6-08
St. Joseph's won against Paramus Catholic cementing its spot as the top team in New Jersey and a top 10 team. It has a game with DePaul next week to see if that cement sets.
8NorthwesternRock HillSC9-09
Northwestern proved a lot to doubters in beating previously unbeaten, York, 45-15. York had been nationally ranked and was just outside the rankings entering the game.
9Mountain PointePhoenixAZ9-05
Mountain Pointe was idle this week and took a slide with multiple teams winning really good games.
10De La SalleConcordCA8-010
It is hard to know what make of De La Salle at this point as it hasn't been tested recently. This week it bettered Amador Valley, 63-14. The talent on the field is impressive but its final placement is playoff dependent.
