Bishop Gorman strengthened its hold onto the No. 1 spot in the Super 25 football rankings by winning its seventh consecutive state title. Running back Biaggio Ali-Walsh ran for 255 yards and three touchdowns in a 62-21 win Saturday vs. Liberty (Henderson) in the state Division I championship.

There’s a new No. 2 this week as Colquitt County (Moultrie, Ga.) moved up a spot after defeating Mill Creek (Hoschton) 52-31 in the AAAAAA semifinals as Chase Parrish threw for 431 yards and six touchdowns. The Packers’ rise was aided because the previous No. 2, St. John Bosco (Bellflower, Calif.) fell 62-52 to previous No. 9 Centennial (Corona, Calif.), as Centennial running back J.J. Taylor ran for 269 yards and five touchdowns. With the victory, the Huskies moved up to No. 6.

The highest rated new team is No. 22 Spanish Fort, Ala., which defeated then-No. 11 Clay-Chalkville (Pinson) 31-28 in the state 6A championship as Javon Brown had two touchdown catches and ran for a touchdown.

The other three new teams: No. 23 Jenks, Okla., which won its fourth consecutive state title; No. 24 Armwood (Seffner, Fla.), which is unbeaten and plays for the state 6A title this week; and No. 25 Xaverian Brothers (Westwood, Mass.), which won its second consecutive state Division I title.
