PRESEASON TOP 20 TEAMS REMAINING: 12
BIGGEST MOVER

Antioch is the biggest mover — in the wrong direction. The Panthers fell to then-unranked Freedom 14-7 in a weird game that featured several penalties and injuries. Antioch’s resume — which includes a win over No. 8 Clayton Valley — is still strong enough to keep them ranked, however. Freedom comes in at No. 20 for their second visit inside the Top 20 this season. It could be short-lived, though, depending on how well they do in their NCS Div. I Championship rematch with arch-rival No. 3 Liberty-Brentwood. Palo Alto also debuts this week at No. 18 and squares off with No. 17 Wilcox-Santa Clara.

      Who says Gilroy was a signature win? Nobody here wrote that. Liberty stayed where it was at by blowing out a team it rightly should have blown out. We’re just two weeks in. Let the schedule play out a bit. Liberty is going to have to play both Pitt and Freedom eventually. If they win out, they deserved their spot. If they don’t, they’ll certainly drop.

    I think Castlemont high school out of oakland California is being overlooked. They have scored 82 points in two games this year when they only scored 70 points all of last year. New talent and they are young. You might want to look at them.

      Thanks for the heads up. We’ll keep our eye on the Knights.

    Foothill high school out of Sacramento ca previous 3/4 years have been 1-9. So far this year they are 3-0 70-0 74-0 54-12. They have a new coaching staff and looking good over there.
