I get why they have them...but one of the most useless things in all of sports is a high school poll. No way to ever verify any of the rankings. Most teams get their positioning based on reputation. Interesting to see but does not hold much value.

20 years ago, I'd be right there with you. Right now, most of the top 25 all play each other at least once. The top 100 also play each other enough to give someone a baseline to rank. It's much easier to gauge these things these days. Just locally you have DeMatha playing Gorman, SJC playing DLS, SJR, SJB, and IMG, HD Woodson playing St. Edwards, Good Counsel playing Bishop Sullivan, St. Frances playing IMG and Bishop Sullivan, etc... Thats just our big dogs. The Florida, California, Ohio and NJ powerhouses put it on the line at a higher clip.

Some of the rankings guys(prepgridiron I know for sure) are straight up saying you have to play a top 25 team to be in the top 25. Basically if you want recognition, you have to put in the work and show it. I used to look at the USA Today rankings and think, no shot that any of this is legit. I can't say that right now. The internet and money in high school football with sponsorship has changed everything.

Just a couple match-ups amongst the premiere programs:

1 Bosco (CA) vs 14 Aquinas (FL)

4 Gorman (NV) vs 13 Dematha (MD)

5 IMG (FL) vs 11 Chandler (AZ)

2 Mater Dei (CA) vs 4 Gorman (NV)

5 IMG (FL) vs 10 Centennial (CA)

2 Mater Dei (CA) vs 15 Bergen (NJ)

4 Gorman (NV) vs 21 De La Salle (CA)

5 IMG (FL) vs 8 Hoover (AL)

8 Hoover (AL) vs 16 Grayson (GA)

AND THE BIG ONE if both teams make it to October unscathed

1 Bosco (CA) vs 2 Mater Dei (CA)

I Agree

This certainly illustrates the point made by silverbullet.  There are a lot of teams playing each other at the top.  High School football is in a golden age.

The entire area would do well to ride this wave given recent articles that point out that the conditions to sustain success are abundant in the DMV.  Why not roll the dice?  Basketball worked out pretty well, and I'm a fan of giving kids the opportunity.  Even if you don't embrace it at the highest level, in this case a rising tide floats all of the boats.  Smaller DMV football programs will likely see a rise in scholarship offers.
