No. 1 St. Thomas More (11-0, 0-1) – 2018 OFSAA Western Bowl Champions

STM left no questions after they defeated the (at that time) No. 2 ranked CFC50 team in Canada, Catholic Central in the Western Bowl last Monday with a score of 26-9. Playing in less than favourable conditions of snow and rain, the Knights didn’t let that slow them down as they go back-to-back at the top of the CFC50 rankings. This will be the first team ever to accomplish this feat in the time that CFC has been doing the ranking – 9 years now.

No. 2  St. Francis (6-2, 2-0) – 2018 Alberta Provincial Champions

One of the biggest upsets of the season, the Browns squeezed the dominant CFC50 No. 4 (previously No. 2) in one of the most low scoring games that we have ever seen, 3-2. We aren’t sure they weren’t playing soccer. We thought that the game would be competitive, but no contest for the Browns. Boy were we wrong. This would have been a great game to watch. So, the 2018 Provincial Championship trophy comes back to Calgary. This one is going to take a long time to get over up North. Congrats to the Browns for an incredible win. We can’t wait for next season!

No. 3 Harry Ainlay (9-1, 2-0) – 2018 MetroAthletics City Champions

Who spoiled the party? In a stunning loss to the CFC50 No. 3 St. Francis Browns, 2-3, we had to check and then double check the final score. We still are caught shaking our heads. What an upset by the Browns. No doubt the Titans didn’t quite know what happened either. However, that being said, we have all the confidence that this team is going to finish what they started this year, next year. We have to give a shout out to the Titans who had a terrific season.

No. 4 Holy Names (10-1, 01-) – 2018 OFSAA Northern Bowl Champions

A back-to-back championship for the Knights as they beat CFC50 Huron Heights 24-12 in the Northern Bowl. CFC100s Mike Herzog, Devin Veresuk, Jake Heydon, and Theo Johnson are just a few of the many talented players on this roster. Watching the game, there was no doubt that Herzog was the star of the show with 235 yards rushing on 20 carries and 3 rushing touchdowns. Let’s just say the O-line did their job! Great season and congratulations!

No. 5 College Jean-Eudes (7-4) – 2018 Bol d’Or Provincial Champions

In the upset of huge proportions, the Aigles stunned Quebec in the juvenile ranks as they beat former CFC50 No. 3, Saint-Jean-Eudes, in the semifinals. The underdog had a tough job ahead of them as they set to meet the Blizzard for the 2018 Bol d’Or. At the end of the 3rd quarter, the score was 32-17 for the Blizzard. We checked again and they had tied it up 32-32 to send them into OT. The Aigles came out the victor of that one, 38-32, and are the new 2018 Bol d’Or Champions. Congratulations to them. Talk about peaking at the most optimal time!!

No. 6 Vincent Massey WPG (9-0-1, 1-0) – 2018 Manitoba Provincial Champions

Congratulations are in order for the Trojans as they are the new Manitoba AAA provincial champions as they beat the CFC50 No. 16 St. Paul’s. How this went down in nothing short of epic as the Trojans scored a touchdown late in the 4th to give them the lead 28-25. The Crusaders had their chance to kick the field goal and tie it up to send them into OT, but the kick was blocked and the Trojans came out the victors. We can only imagine the elation and devastation from both teams, but that’s why we love playoffs. We’ll be seeing these two back at it next season.

No. 7 Mount Douglas (9-2) – 2018 Subway Bowl (B.C) Provincial Champions

The last high school team to complete their season, the Mt. Douglas Rams. They showed their championship pedigree this weekend as they took apart the defending champs – CFC50 New Westminster Hyacks, 48-24. Both teams struggled during the season with key players being injured, however, somehow, they both managed to make it to the final. Mt. Doug squeezed out the win over CFC50 Vancouver College in the semifinals, while NWSS shut out CFC50 Terry Fox. The Rams were just the better team on this night. They looked poised, confident and boy do they have some terrific athletes. CFC100s Gideone and Zairech Kremler, Aiden Bertuzzi, Jackson McEwan, Matt Ounsted, and potentially Sebastien Hansen who has put himself on the map this post season. The Rams shut down completely NWSS’s run game, which NWSS couldn’t find an answer for. Congratulations to the Rams. This will make their 6th provincial title in the past 10 years.

No. 8 Miller (8-2) – 2018 Saskatchewan Provincial Champions

Say hello to the 2018 Saskatchewan 4a 12-man provincial champions as they went on to beat soundly the CFC50 No. 43, the Centennial Chargers from Saskatoon. The final score of that game was 45-0. The last time Miller won the championship was back in 1971 when they beat Evan Hardy, 33-7. Congratulations to the Marauders.

No. 9 Catholic Central (8-1, 2-1) – 2018 WOSSA Champions Ontario

CFC titled this the “National Championship” as No. 1 played No. 2 in the country. They did not come away the winner of the Western Bowl against St. Thomas More, and with the score 16-0 after the first quarter, they didn’t seem to wake up until they were quite behind. Unfortunately, they couldn’t catch up to the Knights on this day. With the weather being a major factor, both teams struggled to really showcase the incredible talent that these two rosters boast. CCH outscored their opponents 460-92, a dominant season for sure. This was CCH’s sixth appearance to the Bowl Festival and have won two titles, the last being in 2005.

No. 10 Holy Trinity (Courtice) (9-0, 1-0) – 2018 OFSAA Simcoe Bowl Champions

Remaining undefeated, the Titans outscored their opponents 434-20. They toppled CFC50 St. Joan of Arc, 38-21, in the Simcoe Bowl and cracked the top 10 of the CFC50.

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 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.

For all your recruiting and player news, we’ve got you covered with the most in-depth analysis and insider information you’ll find in Canada.
