    Very inconsistent rankings. Bishop Amat beats a Division 4 school buy only two scores and remains at number 1? After two weeks of poor performances I would say after week two La Serna and St Paul have been more impressive and deserving.

    • FredJ

      They beat the No. 2 ranked team in Division 4 that looked great in Week 1. Two weeks of poor performances? They fared better against Mater Dei than No. 10 in the country Bishop Gorman. Take that pal.

      Fred J ,
      Nice to see the blog up and running , and starting off with the same old BS
      TruTH ??? These look like lies to me . St Paul ,are you kidding me , when was the last time they beat AMAT ??? you were probably in diapers .

  • hs sports news

    Pretty solid on your rankings Freddy I know it is still early. I am really curious to see how Saint Francis and Damien game goes this week, I tend to think Damien is a top 20 team once they have a better sample size, and then it looks like after Glendora will take care of Charter Oak this week, we can finally see them drop out of the top 20 since they are only there now for history. Another team (because they have been the jokes in recent years) is 2-0 Walnut with their weak schedule, but could this finally be the year they get a Hacienda League win? If so, it would likely need to be against the falling West Co or Charter Oak programs. Keep up the good work, a couple more weeks when all pans out we can start seeing the rankings solidify.

  • Conq’76

    IMO, SOS would indicate that both DR and SH should be ranked higher than LA, but all 3 play each other, so that’s where it will be settled

    • Nomoredrama

      I agree, South Hills looked pretty good against Don Lugo. That Elliott kid is a monster!

  • Radical

    I think you ranked Glendora to low. That Roosevelt Eastvale team they lost to had just beaten Rancho Cucamonga the week before.
