#CFC50 2017 high school RANKINGS (2): Traditional powers dominate early, one top 10 falls

For the eight 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 classified as 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.

No. 1 South Lions – The Lions’ anticipation builds as they face the CFC50 Nelson Lords next weekend. Is South already feeling the pressure of their pre-season ranking? It should be a heck of a game because the Lords will be looking to get back on track after being dominated by the St. Roch Ravens this past weekend.

No. 2 St. Francis Browns – Did not play, they will play the Ernest Manning Griffins in their season opener next weekend.

No. 3 Séminaire Saint-François Blizzard – The Blizzard continue to freeze their opponents in Quebec. How long will this storm last?

No. 4 St. Paul’s Crusaders – The Crusaders continue to dominate Winnipeg with their win against the Sisler Spartans of 39-1.

No. 5 W.F. Herman Green Griffins – Griffins did not play, sit idle.

No. 6 A. N. Myer Marauders – Myer did not play, sit idle.

No. 7 Curé-Antoine-Labelle Wolves – With the biggest jump of the week, the Wolves are on a collision course with the Blizzard. With fairly healthy wins over two other CFC50 teams in Quebec, are they on the rise?

No. 8 Leboldus Golden Suns – The Golden Suns managed a win against Winston Knoll this past weekend, a pretty close game of 35-30. We are not used to seeing this from them, was this just an off day or are the Golden Suns starting to struggle this early in the season.

No. 9 St. Thomas More Knights – STM lost to an outstanding Glenoak team from Ohio. We realize the score says 39-0, but Glenoak is a solid football program.

No. 10 Huron Heights Warriors – Did not play, sit idle.
