Allen holds at No. 2 in USA Today High School Super 25 football rankings; DeSoto top of computer rankings
Sure, national rankings are a little silly and much too abstract, but it's neat to see two area programs getting the praise they deserve.
With its 36-17 win over Hebron, Allen (4-0) kept its No. 2 spot in the USA Today Super 25 high school rankings, right behind Florida power Miami Booker T. Washington.
DeSoto (4-0) moved up three spots to No. 12 in the USA Today rankings, but - given how dominant its wins over Cedar Hill, Tulsa (Okla.) Union and Euless Trinity have been - its computer rankings are much higher. In fact, USA Today's computer rankings have DeSoto as the top-ranked team in the country.
No. 4 Katy is the only other Texas team in the Top 25, while Coppell (3-0) is sitting right outside the rankings at No. 26.
Here's the full Super 25.
