#CFC50 High School Rankings (1): Will the Pride repeat?

For the sixth year in a row, Canadafootballchat.com (CFC) is pleased to bring you the national high school football rankings known as the #CFC50.

Last year’s final rankings were the most controversial to date…and we heard about it.  Whether you agree or disagree we love hearing from you.  Best of luck to all the players and coaches competing across the country and beyond.

For an explanation of how the rankings are computed please scroll to the bottom of the page.  We have made some adjustments this season in order to high light more programs.

Avery McCuaig

TOP 10:

#1 Notre Dame Pride (CALGARY)  0-0  – Can the Pride be the first team to repeat as #CFC50 champions?  Loaded with 3 #CFC100 stars Oklahoma State commit LB Amen Ogbongbemiga (top picture), RBs Avery McCuaig (picture above) and Ted Kubongo we think they have a legitimate chance.  Not to mention one of the strongest and deepest coaching staffs in the county.

#2 South Delta Sun Devils (South Delta, BC) 0-0  – Looking to repeat as BC AAA Varsity champions despite the fact they must replace 14 starters, including #CFC100 QB Lucas Kirk.  New starting QB Kyle Chace is looking to lead the Sun Devils to the promise land.  By the end of it we may see this as Coach Moon’s best team yet.

#3 St. Francis Browns (CALGARY) 0-0 – The two best teams in Canada may be in the same city.  #CFC100 Des Catellier and super juniors Jacob Izquierdo and Joseph Dutton may take the Browns to the next level.  Winning the city championship may be that level.

#4  Curé-Antoine-Labelle Wolves (LAVAL, QC) 2-0 – Always a force in Quebec Juvenile Division 1, the Wolves have been great in their first two games of the season.

#5 St. Paul Crusaders (WINNIPEG, MB) 0-0 – Impressive in an exhibition game versus #9 Leboldus Golden Suns, prevailing 21 to 14.   #CFC100 Matt Kaneski and Trevor Wright lead an offensive attack that may be too much for others in ‘The ‘Peg’.

#6 W.F. Herman Green Griffins (WINDSOR, ON) 0-0 – Coach Harry Lumley is a legend of Ontario high school football and deserves lots of credit for producing a top program year in and year out.  Will this be the year the Green Griffins finish on top?  #CFC100 Jalen Jackson and teammates are ready for the challenge.

#7  Collège Notre-Dame Cactus (Montreal) 2-0 – Another juggernaut in Quebec, the Cactus may just have the best team and best nick name in La Belle Province.

#8  A.B. Lucas Vikings (London, ON) 0-0 – Coach Hayes may have his best group to date.  #CFC100 QB Tristan Arndt gets all the press but two names to remember are Blake Reason and Brett Ledingham.

#9 Leboldus Golden Suns (Regina) FINAL 1-0 – Steamrolled Thom Trojans 77 to 0 in the opener.  #CFC100 Nicolas Dheilly is an absolute beast and teams will be hard pressed to move the ball tackle to tackle when he is on the field.

#10  Terry Fox Ravens (Port Coquitlam, BC) 0-0 – Not a lot of high profile names on this team…yet.  Players to watch include Jeremie Kankolongo (running back), Taylor Poitras (running back), Zander Bailey (running back), Jake Laberge (quarterback).
