Scott Venci's area prep football rankings, awards


1. West De Pere (7-0): The Phantoms used defense to beat Seymour 12-7 and extend their winning streak to 35. West De Pere has clinched a share of its seventh straight Bay Conference title and can win it outright with a victory at Hortonville this week.

2. Green Bay Southwest (7-0): The Trojans had no trouble in a big 33-0 win over Green Bay Preble. It sets up a showdown against Bay Port for the Fox River Classic Conference championship on Friday.

3. Bay Port (7-0): The Pirates have been so good this season that their 28 points in a win at Sheboygan South was their fewest in 2012.

4. Wrightstown (6-1): The Tigers keep winning, this time 16-7 over Mishicot. They still have a chance to share the Olympian/Packerland-Large with Chilton, which leads Wrightstown by one game in the league standings.

5. Green Bay Preble (6-1): The Hornets’ defense has taken a hit due to injuries, but the team can finish the regular season strong if they beat Green Bay East.
