Lake Travis (Austin, Texas) is the top new team in the Super 25 football rankings at No. 14. Cavaliers quarterback Charlie Brewer threw for 308 yards and four touchdowns in a 49-21 6A-II semifinal defeat of Mansfield on Saturday in Waco.

Lake Travis is 15-0 and is the only team to defeat new No. 19 Westlake (Austin) this season. Westlake joins the Super 25 after knocking off No. 3 Allen, Texas, 23-17 in a 6A-I semifinal on Friday as Sam Ehlinger threw three touchdown passes.

The other new teams: No. 23 Miami (Fla.) Central; and No. 25 Westfield (Chantilly, Va.).

Miami Central won its fourth consecutive 6A title, defeating then-No. 24 Armwood (Seffner) 48-13 as freshman running back James Cook ran for 178 yards and two touchdowns.

Westfield won the state 6A title with a 49-42 defeat of Oscar Smith (Chesapeake) as Timothy Beard ran for 243 yards and three touchdowns.

A subplot with the new rankings is that Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas) holds onto the No. 1 spot, despite No. 2 Colquitt County (Moultrie, Ga.) defeating then-No. 15 Roswell 30-13 in the state AAAAAA championship.

While Colquitt’s opponents had a slightly higher win percentage than Bishop Gorman’s, the Gaels have a longer current win streak, a greater score differential and faced tougher out-of-state tests, defeating New Jersey state champion Don Bosco Prep (Ramsey) and state-runner-up Bellevue, Wash.

That means that probably only No. 5 Centennial (Corona, Calif.) and No. 6 Katy, Texas, have a chance to unseat the Gaels as the No. 1 team. Centennial plays once-beaten No. 4 De La Salle (Concord) in the Open Division Bowl in Sacramento on Saturday. Katy faces Lake Travis on Saturday for the state 6A-II title.
