Despite an early scare, Bishop Gorman held onto its No. 1 spot in the Super 25 football rankings by defeating then-No. 32 Servite (Anaheim) 48-27 on Friday. The Gaels get another test this week as they play host to No. 18 Bingham (South Jordan, Utah) on Friday.
Booker T. Washington defeated Tucker, Ga., 19-7 on Saturday and leapfrogged over Miami Central to the No. 5 spot. The Tornadoes will play No. 6 Miami Central on Friday in this week’s biggest game.
Colquitt County (Moultrie, Ga.) was this week’s most aggressive mover, defeating then-No. 20 Hoover, Ala., 35-14 on Friday and crashing the rankings at No. 24. The Packers are coached by Rush Propst, who coached Hoover from 1999 to 2007.
Long Beach Poly, playing its first regular-season game for new coach Antonio Pierce, jumped five spots to reach the Super 25, moving from No. 30 to No. 25 as quarterback Josh Love threw for two touchdowns and ran for two in a 54-14 win Saturday over Crenshaw (Los Angeles).
Another big mover was Eden Prairie, Minn., which jumped four spots from No. 26 to No. 22 with two wins in four days, led by running back Will Rains. He ran for two touchdowns in a 48-6 win Wednesday at Minneapolis South then caught a touchdown pass and ran for a touchdown in a 53-17 defeat on Saturday of a Canadian team, Oak Park (Winnipeg, Manitoba).
Three Super 25 teams lost to fall out of the rankings: Hoover; No. 11 Mallard Creek (Charlotte) and No. 17 Apopka, Fla.
