CIF-SS FOOTBALL RANKINGS

MID-VALLEY
1. Monrovia (4-0), 2. Arroyo (3-1), 3. Viewpoint (4-1), 4. Baldwin Park (4-0), 5. San Marino (3-1), 6. Pomona (5-0), 7. Paraclete (2-3), 8. San Dimas (1-4), 9. Sierra Canyon (1-3), 10. Northview (4-1). Other: Gabrielino (4-1).
Steve’s take: I can see any path where Monrovia doesn’t win this division, which likely means the Wildcats are going bowling. San Marino’s up to No. 5, with a chance to finish in the top three, which could make an All-Rio Hondo League title game.
NORTHEAST
1. Mission Prep (4-1), 2. Pasadena Poly (4-0), 3. Rio Hondo Prep (4-1), 4. St. Anthony (3-1), 5. Chadwick (5-0), 6. Salesian (3-2), 7. St. Genevieve (2-2), 8. Capistrano Valley Chr. (4-0), 9. Silver Valley (4-0), 10. Saddleback Valley Chr. (3-1).
Steve’s take: This is looking like it will be a rematch of Mission Prep and Rio Hondo Prep, which has won the division the past two years. But be wary of Poly.
NORTHWEST
1. Bishop Diego (4-0), 2. Nordhoff (4-0), 3. Oak Park (4-1), 4. Carpinteria (5-0), 5. El Segundo (2-2), 6. Whittier Christian (3-2), 7. La Salle (3-2), 8. Lawndale (4-1), 9. North Torrance (2-2). 10t. La Puente (3-1), 10t. Santa Paula (4-1).
Steve’s take: La Salle is the lone area team with a chance. The Lancers are up to No. 7, with a chance to rise higher if they run the table in the Del Rey, which is likely.
SOUTHEAST
1. Norwalk (5-0), 2. Diamond Ranch (4-1), 3. Los Altos (4-0), 4. Downey (2-3), 5. La Serna (3-2), 6. Santa Fe (3-1), 7. Burbank (4-0), 8. Muir (3-1), 9. La Mirada (1-4), 10. Diamond Bar (4-1).
Steve’s take: Muir is looking good. I think they can run the table in the Pacific, which means they could get a top four seed come November.
WESTERN
1. Serra (5-0), 2. Chaminade (3-1), 3. Lompoc (4-1), 4. Harvard-Westlake (4-0), 5. Cathedral (5-0), 6. St. Francis (4-0), 7. Camarillo (3-1), 8. Santa Monica (2-2), 9. San Marcos (5-0), 10. Culver City (1-3).
Steve’s take: The Mission League holds five of the six spots, including St. Francis, which could make an impact after going just one round last season.

    Based on performance so far, Paraclete is #2 and San Marino #3 in the Mid-Valley division.

  • Eastern Ave.

    Salesian has 3 or 4 D1 College players on their team. #5 on their team, Jamadre Cobb is an Arizona commit and a man playing with boys.

    They are strong they are the favorite.

    Mission Prep would have a chance to beat them.

    RHP would have to play a turnover free game to beat them, which is possible.

    Poly would wilt if they played them.

    I’ll take the kids from Farna St. over

    the boys from Soto St. in the Northeast.

    • Steve Ramirez

      Eastern Ave: By that thinking, La Mirada, with about six D-1 prospects, should be 4-0 and outscoring its opponents by 30 points. Instead, they are 1-4…Rio Hondo and Mission Prep’s strength is that what they do, they do very well.
