#CFC50 High School Rankings (13): One more week

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.

In just another week, it will be hard to believe that another national high school football season will draw to a close.

This past weekend was a big one in Alberta as Provincial Champions were crowned in four tiers.  CFC#1 St. Francis Browns officially ended the three year reign of Notre Dame Pride to claim the Alberta Schools Athletic Association (ASAA) Provincial Tier 1 Championship with a 38-28 victory. It’s the Browns’ first provincial crown since 1997.

Additionally, Foothill Falcons (Tier 2), Cochrane Cobras (Tier 3) and Ardrossan Bisons (Tier 4) all took home provincial titles on Championship Saturday in Alberta. One significant note in the Falcons victory is that #CFC100 players Trey Kellogg and Landon Rose both broke provincial records.  Kellogg smashed the Bowl mark for passing yards with 343 while Rose took over the touchdown record as he scored five.
