CFC50 2017 high school RANKINGS (10): Hyacks move up in top 10, 3 newcomers to list as playoffs heat up

The Fox 40 Prospect Challenge (FPC) is a series of elite showcase games that feature the best tackle football players from across Canada aged 10-19 years. Tournaments are played in Central Canada (ON) and the West Coast (BC).




No. 1 South Lions (5-0*, 1-0) – With the Lions win over Central this past weekend, 35-0, they will go on to play A.B Lucas (5-0) in the TVDSB Central semifinal on the 10th. This should be a very good game and probably the only one outside of the OFSAA Bowl Festival that will really showcase both team’s talent. 

No. 2 Séminaire Saint-François Blizzard (10-0) – Coming off their first round bye, the Blizzard will have had two weeks to prepare for their semifinal match against Saint-Jean-Eudes who won their quarter final.

No. 3 St. Francis Browns (6-0) – The Browns are also coming off a first round bye and will face the 3-5 Centennial Coyotes in the Calgary High School division 1 league. 

No. 4 St. Paul’s Crusaders (7-0*) – St. Paul’s played Vincent Massey in the semifinal round of the Anavets Bowl in the WHSFL this past weekend where they won 35-7. We already see the writing on the wall in this won as they face the Dakota Lancers for the Championship. Look for the Crusaders to hoist the trophy once again this year. 

No. 5 A. N. Myer Marauders (6-0, 1-0) – With a second shutout against Sir Winston Churchill, 42-0 (59-0 in regular season), the Marauders will move on to the Tier 1 Championship game against Greater Fort Erie in the Niagara Region.

No. 6 St. Thomas More Knights (5-0, 1-1) –  STM was also idle this past weekend as they watched to see who they would play in their semifinal game in the Hamilton Catholic District. They will play St. Mary’s on Friday. Look for STM to be moving on.

No. 7 Harry Ainlay Titans (9-0, 2-0) – The Titans won comfortably over a banged up Bellerose team in the Metro Athletics league in Edmonton, 48-14 this past weekend and are now the 2017 Edmonton City Champions. They will now go on to play Salisbury (5-4) in the regional playoff to determine who will play against the Southern champion.

No. 8 New Westminster Hyacks (7-0, 2-1) – Moving up one spot in the CFC50 rankings, the Hyacks beat No. 30 the South Delta Sun Devils convincingly, 63-16 and were awarded the Kushnir Boot Trophy for their last regular season game. They earned a bye for the wild card round in the BCHSFB league and will have two weeks to wait for their opponent for the quarterfinals.

No. 9 Huron Heights Warriors (5-0, 1-1) – Shutting out St. Maximilian, 49-0, this past weekend, the Warriors remain undefeated. They will start their playoff run.

No. 10 Holy Names Knights (6-0, 2-0) – The Knights will play St. Anne for their first semifinal playoff game as they were also idle this past weekend.

About the CFC50

For the eighth year in a row, (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 classified as non-conference games) and forfeit* wins are not considered towards overall record.

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.
