Each week during the season we update the Top 25 rankings in Class 2A providing our Top 10 teams as well as provide The Next 15 teams that we have ranked to complete the Top 25 rankings. Information used to determine the rankings include record, quality wins, defeating ranked opponents and strength of schedule (after Week 1). It is important that teams update their information with scores with us on a regular basis each week by emailing us score reports at firstname.lastname@example.org, sending us a direct message on Twitter @FlaHSFootball or updating scores in the ScoreStream app. Lack of information (scores) reported by the teams will only hurt their chances of being ranked, especially if they are having a solid season.
THE TOP 10
1. Riverview (Riverview)
Last Week: 1
NOTE: The Sharks were one point away from going 3-0 on the week last week as they played tough and took the No. 1 overall team in the Sunshine State, Robinson (Tampa) right down to the wire in a 20-19 loss which is our reason for keeping Riverview No. 1 in Class 2A. The Sharks picked up shutout wins over Durant and East Bay.
2. Seminole Ridge (Loxahatchee)
Last Week: 2
NOTE: The Hawks stay undefeated, but about came close to seeing their first district loss as Wellington forced them into overtime (a game which Seminole Ridge would win 6-0). They also picked up a come-from-behind win over Dwyer. Given how unsteady the wins have been for the Hawks, this is why we are not comfortable in considering a move to No. 1 at this time.
3. Park Vista (Lake Worth)
Last Week: 7
NOTE: The Cobras are a big riser in this week’s rankings thanks to the shifts that were caused by the results of the Capital City Classic. Park Vista has been dominating opponents, for the most part, this year outside a close 14-12 win over Suncoast who is a Top 25 team in Class 1A. The Cobras are a legitimate title contender in Class 2A, and they cannot be ignored. Other wins last week came against Spanish River and Boynton Beach.
4. Alonso (Tampa)
Last Week: 6
NOTE: The Ravens went 3-1 on the week with a victory over previous No. 5 Steinbrenner and going 2-1 overall at the Capital City Classic in Tallahassee with wins over Lincoln and Wekiva before falling to the No. 1 overall team in Robinson for the second time this year in the Capital City Classic Gold Bracket Championship.
5. Cooper City
Last Week: 4
NOTE: The Cowboys drop one thanks to Alonso jumping up in the rankings but remain in the top five in Class 2A with dominating victories last week over Flanagan and Miramar to stay undefeated on the season, clinching a spot in the District 2A-13 tournament.
6. Wekiva (Apopka)
Last Week: 3
NOTE: The Mustangs had a great showing at the Capital City Classic in Tallahassee over the weekend, going 2-1 in their first time at the tournament in the Gold Bracket with their only loss being to now No. 4 Alonso in a rematch of last year’s Class 2A North State Semifinal. Wekiva had wins over previous No. 17 Newsome and previous Class 1A No. 18 Niceville at the tournament as well as a win over Spruce Creek earlier last week.
7. Steinbrenner (Lutz)
Last Week: 5
NOTE: Steinbrenner slipped up last week with a loss to previous No. 6 Alonso and squeaked out a close win over Sickles. Steinbrenner will try to regroup this week with three games at the Bloomingdale Tournament.
8. Western (Davie)
Last Week: 10
NOTE: The Wildcats continue their undefeated ways after picking up wins last week against a good Plantation squad and running by Boyd Anderson, pretty much locking up a spot in the District 2A-12 tournament.
9. Bloomingdale (Valrico)
Last Week: 9
NOTE: The Bulls won three games last week that likely clinches the No. 2 overall seed in District 2A-6 with wins over East Bay, Newsome, and Plant City. Now the Bulls get ready this week for three games with as the host of the Bloomingdale Tournament.
10. Dr. Krop (Miami)
Last Week: 12
NOTE: The Lightning finally jumps into the Top 10 of the Class 2A rankings after teams like Jupiter and Dwyer lost games to unranked Royal Palm Beach. Dr. Krop easily won district games against Hialeah and North Miami last week to pretty much clinch the No. 1 overall seed for the District 2A-14 tournament with only one district game this week left against Reagan.
