CFC25 Small School RANKINGS (WEEK 3): Who will win the race for top spot in Quebec?

The CFC25 Small School Rankings see another minor shuffle in the top five as College Laval continue to put pressure of College de Levis to stay undefeated down the stretch. Thankfully we only have to wait a couple of more weeks before they finally meet on the field, and a potential rematch in the playoffs.

Medicine Hat did their best to hold off AAA Raymond in a tight contest, but sadly their efforts weren’t enough to come away with the massive upset. Bishop J. Mahoney faced the same fate as they couldn’t handle the firepower from CFC50 top ten program St. Joseph’s.

The biggest shakeup this week comes in Manitoba where the “other” Vincent Massey out of Brandon jump onto the rankings after a pair of massive victories to begin the year, while the Owen Sounds Raiders make their first appearance on the rankings after defeating former CFC25 programs St. Mary’s in preseason action. This could easily change when points are on the line, but it appear like Owen Sound might be a real contender for the league championship this year.

Who’s getting ranked?

For the first time, (CFC) is pleased to bring you the national ‘Small School’ high school football rankings known as the CFC25.

The CFC25 rankings considers all conference and non-conference games (in Canada and the United States) while scrimmages are not evaluated (there is no such thing as an exhibition game – those are classified as non-conference games) and forfeit* wins are not considered towards overall record.

How is the CFC25 evaluated?

Leagues/teams included in rankings:

  • British Columbia: AA Varsity
  • Alberta: Tier 2-4
  • Saskatchewan: 12-man 3A rural, Saskatoon  – 5A, Regina – Stewart
  • Manitoba: Division 2 and 3 Varsity
  • Ontario: NSSAA – Haldimand-Norfolk, BAA – Bluewater, COSSAA – Kawartha, COSSAA – Bay of Quinte, LRFL – Lanark-Renfrew, LGSSAA – Brockville, EOFC – Cornwall
  • Quebec: Juvenile Division 1b
  • New Brunswick: 12-man D2E and D2W
  • Nova Scotia: Div. 2 Nova – Sydney Academy, Horton, Millwood, Avon View, Cole Harbour. Scotia – Sackville, Park View, J.L. Ilsley, Central Kings, West Kings (***NS league was re-aligned Oct. 1, 2019. These are now the Division 2 teams and will take into affect for week 7 ranking)

The CFC25 is a RELATIVE RANKING that considers small school leagues from all eight high school playing provinces (minimum one team represented from each province) and the strength of the league. Additional criteria used to determine the relative ranking are the ability to accomplish winning a championship, the impact players and performers on that team (ie. CFC100s, CDN All-Stars etc.), and a team’s coaching and recent tradition.

The CFC Scouting Bureau consists of CFC Reporters, CFC Scouts, and selected local reporters and scouts who submit local ranking results on a weekly basis. The CFC25 is released every Tuesday (other than on Holidays) at 12 noon.
