#CFC50 2016 High school RANKINGS (11): Time to step up or get stepped over!

For the seventh year in a row, Canadafootballchat.com (CFC) is pleased to bring you the national high school football rankings known as the #CFC50. The #CFC50 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 non-conference games).

How is the #CFC50 evaluated?

Leagues included in rankings: British Columbia AAA Varsity, Alberta Tier One, Saskatchewan 12-man 4A, Manitoba AAA Varsity, Ontario OFSAA Bowl AAA qualified teams, Quebec Juvenile Division 1, New Brunswick 12-man, Nova Scotia Tier 1.

The #CFC50 is a RELATIVE RANKING that considers top tier leagues from all eight high school playing provinces (minimum one team represented from each province) and the strength of the league that they play in. 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 #CFC50 is released every Monday (other than on Holidays) at 12 noon.

Registration for the 2016-2017 Fox 40 Prospect Challenge has begun

No. 1 W.F. Herman Green Griffins – The green machine has punched their ticket to the finals with their win over Massey 42-0. We don’t think this year has been too difficult for Herman yet, that or they just make it look easy. We’ll see what No. 18 Holy Names has to say about it when they face each other this week in the finals.

No. 2 Bev Facey Falcons – Facey football has been unstoppable all year. The Metro Edmonton Div 1 champions haven’t let their foot off the gas this whole year, but do they have enough in the tank to, in all probability, meet the returning No. 10, the St. Francis Browns in the Alberta provincial final?

No. 3 A. N. Myer Marauders – Myer has had a nice long break waiting to meet their next opponent to hopefully move on to the highly anticipated OFSAA bowls.

No. 4 Séminaire Saint-François Blizzard – Hats off to the Blizzard on their championship win versus the Curé-Antoine-Labelle. A perfect 10-0 season. Will be hard to top that. See you next year.

No. 5 Leboldus Golden Suns – The Golden Suns have also had a pretty sweet season with them winning all eight (nine including the championship) of their conference games while outscoring their opponents 419-123 and win their 5th consecutive Saskatchewan provincial title.

No. 6 Cardinal Newman Cardinals – Newman has to get through No. 17 St. Thomas More before they can do any sort of celebrating, but up to this point, they have a lot to be proud of. Their league in Ontario is no cake walk and anyone who has made it to the final deserves recognition.

No. 7 St. Paul’s Crusaders – Well, we asked for it and we got it. St. Paul’s defeated Vincent Massey WPG 17-8 in a much anticipated season finale. From what we heard, the crusaders simply made the plays when they had to and now they are champions once again.

No. 8 Terry Fox Ravens – The Ravens will be well rested and ready to face their first challenge in the quarter-finals of the BC playoffs in former #CFC50 Mt. Douglas. We are curious to see this game as we think it will be the first time Terry Fox will really be challenged.

No. 9 Huron Heights Warriors – The Warriors won their semi-final and now will go on to face No. 38 St. Maximillian Kolbe Mustangs who had almost pulled off the upset, 14-11, in week 6. This has been Huron’s only competitive game this year.

No. 10 St. Francis Browns – Welcome back former No. 1. The Browns didn’t like being out of the winner’s circle and rectified that this weekend with their back-to-back Calgary City Championship win. As mentioned above, No. 2 Bev Facey, is calling!
