No. 1 St. Thomas More Knights (3-0, 0-1) – We would like to say it was a tough one for the Knights this past week, but once again, they blanked their opponent 45-0. They will go up against the Bishop Tonnos Titans on the 5th.

No. 2 Harry Ainlay Titans (3-0, 2-0) – It continues to be a blood bath for anyone playing against Harry Ainlay these days. With a 77-0 score over Jasper Place, we are not sure if or when the white flag came out. It was 40-0 at the half, backups came in, and the clock ran for the rest of the game. Spruce Grove will get much of the same next week as they prepare to face the most dominant team, in our opinion, in Alberta, at the moment.

No. 3 Séminaire Saint-François Blizzard (4-0) – Roger-Comtois didn’t have a chance. The Blizzard rolled over them 40-0 this past weekend. However, next weekend is the game we are all waiting for. They will face the No. 7 Saint-Jean Eudes Condors. The Condors are ranked first in the Quebec standings as they have played one more game than the Blizzard, but both are undefeated. The top two offenses and defenses in juvenile d1 football will go head to head. A lot is on the line this game. We believe that this is probably the best game across Canada this Thanksgiving weekend.

No. 4 St. Francis Browns (2-0, 2-0) – While the Browns were scheduled to play the Centennial Coyotes, the Coyotes forfeited the game so the Browns played in a non-conference matchup with the Tier 3, Cochrane Cobras, where they won 53-26. While the score may not be indicative of the competition, we were informed that it wasn’t until the last 5 minutes of the game that the Browns pulled their starters. Cochrane played these folks hard, so shout out to them! St. Francis is off next week, and then will face the Notre Dame Pride on the 11th. This is the game that we are all holding our breath for in Calgary.

No. 5 Holy Names Knights (3-0, 0-1) – The Knights dominated the Villanova Wildcats, 44-7, this past weekend. We are curious to see how they play next weekend against No. 14 Herman, who will be coming off a bye and beat l’Essor, 36-3, and St. Anne’s, 52-0, in previous weeks.

No. 6 New Westminster Hyacks ( 3-0, 1-1) – We wish that one of these weeks we could report that the Hyacks played in all three phases of their game. Unfortunately, it wasn’t this week. While they did come out with a 20-6 win over the No. 45 South Delta Sun Devils, it sure wasn’t pretty. With 23 penalties and 343 yards of penalties between both teams, we’re surprised they both came out alive. We weren’t lying when we said that this was going to be an emotionally charged game. That being said, the Hyacks keep their undefeated record (regular season) and move on to face a gritty, tough No. 50 Notre Dame team on Friday.

No. 7 Saint-Jean-Eudes Condors (5-0) – The Condors beat Academie Saint-Louis, 30-7, on the weekend. As mentioned above, they will have their hardest, and probably only true test, when they face the Blizzard on the 6th.

No. 8 Catholic Central Crusaders (2-0, 1-1) – Catholic Central beat soundly St. Thomas Aquinas, 40-3, on the weekend. They will move on to face St. Andre Bessette on the 4th.

No. 9 Vincent Massey Trojans (4-0, 1-0) – With a 44-0 win over the Sturgeon Heights Huskies on the weekend, the Trojans move up one spot to No. 9. With a quarterback (Jackson Tachinski) who went 12/18 for 216 passing yards and 3 passing touchdowns and carried it once for 21 yards, it seems the Trojans are positioning themselves to make a run for the provincial champion title. We won’t get too carried away just yet, though, as they take on the Dakota Lancers who are a tough team and currently sit 3-1 in the regular season.

No. 10 A.B Lucas Vikings (2-0, 2-0) – Newcomer to the top 10, the Vikings are playing determined. They pulled the upset on No. 26 London South with their 34-7 win this past weekend, took out Wilfrid Laurier 42-7 the week before, beat No. 24 Jacob Hespeler in non-conference 26-19 and CFC10 St. Mike’s, 29-15, at the start of September. The win over South was not predicted by us, that’s for sure. Congratulations to them. They get a nice break for Thanksgiving and will be back at it on the 11th when they face East Elgin.

Who’s getting ranked?

For the ninth 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.
