#CFC50 2017 high school RANKINGS (4): The Sun experienced an eclipse, the Blizzard stay frosty

For the eighth 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 (1-0, 1-0) – With their win over Clarke Road, 44-7, South continues to impress. Oakridge is their next opponent, we’ll see how they fair.

No. 2 St. Francis Browns (2-0) – CFC50 Crescent Heights lost to the Browns 32-6 this past week. Again, the Browns continue to dominate in southern Alberta. Next week doesn’t look to be much better as they play previously ranked CFC50 Centennial who has been struggling as of late.

No. 3 Séminaire Saint-François Blizzard (4-0) – Remaining undefeated, the Blizzard beat Saint-Jean-Eudes 36-3. College Laval better put on their ear muffs and feet warmers next week as the Blizzard may cause some frostbite.

No. 4 St. Paul’s Crusaders (3-0) – In a shut out against Oak Park 38-0, the Crusaders will go on to play Dakota next weekend. This will be a good matchup as both teams are undefeated at 3-0 and Dakota just beat CFC50 Vincent Massey 14-2.

No. 5 W.F. Herman Green Griffins (2-0) – The Green Griffins first game was won by forfeit and then they went on to play Vincent Massey (Windsor) and beat them 25-6.

No. 6 A. N. Myer Marauders (1-0, 1-0) – Myer nation had a solid win against Westlane, 36-14.

No. 7 Curé-Antoine-Labelle Wolves (4-0) – College Jean-Eudes was on the losing end of the stick with their loss, 42-22, to the Wolves. Next week the Wolves will face Saint-Jean-Eudes who just lost to the Blizzard. Will the wolves continue to hunt in the storm?

No. 8 St. Thomas More Knights (1-0, 1-1) – STM didn’t waste any time with their convincing win, 56-7, over St. Mary. Slowly climbing up the ladder, they will face Bishop Tonnes who is coming off a bye.

No. 9 Terry Fox Ravens (1-0, 1-1) – In a no contest game against WJ Mouat this past weekend, the Ravens felt the need to put the exclamation mark of 79-0 on their opponent. It’s difficult to say when the Ravens will get their next true competition. We think it’s time to move Terry Fox into the Western conference where they will be challenged week in and week out. Until then, the Ravens will most likely continue to have their way in the Eastern conference.

No. 10 Harry Ainlay Titans (2-0, 3-0) – The Titans are dominating northern Alberta. Harry Ainlay has run over all opponents up to this point. It will be interesting to see if even Bev Facey can hang with them this year. They have the talent and the linemen to make a deep push into the provincial playoffs. Could this be the year that someone not from the city of Calgary wins a provincial championship?

*UPDATED Sept. 28 – Paul Dwyer lost 23-7 vs. Holy Trinity Titans (Courtice). Ranking has been adjusted to reflect this.
