No. 1 St. Thomas More Knights (9-0, 1-1) – The 2017 OFSAA Golden Horseshoe Bowl Champions charge into the number 1 spot after their 57-7 win over Welland Notre Dame. The Knights have physically dominated all their opponents throughout the regular season behind the performance of who could the best running back in Canada, CFC100 Michael Chris-Ike. It would be nice to see STM line up a few more non-conference opponents (ie. Huron Heights) to get a more competitive game in the 2018 season! We hear they want it. Congratulations to the Knights program and their hard working coaching staff. (Photo Credit – Ryan McCabe)

No. 3 Harry Ainlay Titans (12-0, 2-0) – 2017 Alberta Tier 1 Provincial Champions

No. 4 Holy Names Knights (11-0, 1-0) – Holy Names was able to defeat the No. 1 CFC50 ranked South Lions, 21-17, in the 2017 Western Bowl in OFSAA. It’s tough to gage this win as the Lions lost their starting quarterback early during the game due to injury. The Knights capped an impressive season where they dominated all their competition, including decisive rival W.F. Herman. This last bowl victory catapulted Holy Names in to the top 5 where they deserve to be following an outstanding season. Congratulations!

No. 5 St. Paul’s Crusaders (8-0*) – 2017 WHSFL AAA John Potter Division Champions Anavets Bowl

No. 6 New Westminster Hyacks (10-0, 2-1) – The Hyacks capped a undefeated 2017 season with their improbable come from behind victory over the defending 2016 champions, the Terry Fox Ravens, 15-14 to earn the BC AAA Provincial Championship in the Subway Bowl. New West scored on the last play of the game, brining them within one point. With no time left on the clock, they elected to go for two, not playing for the tie, but playing for the win. The gamble paid off and the game in ended in dramatic fashion. Congratulations! (Photo: Katie Burt, CFC)

No. 7 Huron Heights Warriors (7-0, 1-1) – Winners of the 2017 OFSAA Simcoe Bowl, the Huron Heights Warriors defeated CFC50 ranked St. Matthew’s, 40-6. The Warriors ran their vaunted option attack up and down the field against an outmanned St. Matt’s team. Following their victory, the Warriors have made an open challenge to several of the other high profile programs in Ontario. Throughout the course of the season, no one has accepted that offer. They will be looking for more quality opponents in 2018, anybody looking for a highly competitive game should contact the Huron Heights coaching staff. Congratulations!

No. 8 St. Francis Browns (9-1) – 2017 Alberta Regional semifinalists

No. 9 South Lions (9-1*, 1-0) – The Lions had a dream season, completely dominating all of their opponents all the way to the 2017 OFSAA Western Bowl where they lost to Holy Names, 17-21. From the outside looking in, it looks as though the injury to starting quarterback and CFC100 Ethan Martin, was too much for the Lions to overcome against a very competitive Holy Names Knights squad. The Lions proved that they are one of the premier programs in the country. Had the injury to their quarterback not occurred, we believe that the Lions would have completed their undefeated season and held on to their previous number 1 ranking. Congratulations on a terrific season!

N0. 10 Campbell Tartans (8-1-1) – 2017 SHSAA 4A Provincial Champions

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.
