Allen tops national composite football rankings, DeSoto 4th, Katy 11th
The SportsDay HS area rankings and statewide rankings end with the regular season, but national polls continue on. DeSoto had a close call against a top-notch Coppell team, so did that hurt the Eagles in the rankings?
In this week's national composite football rankings presented by MaxPreps, DeSoto is still at No. 4. Allen is No. 1, and Miami Booker T. Washington and Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco are between them.
Katy, which won't play Allen or DeSoto in the playoffs because it's in 5A Division II, is up one spot to No. 11. The Texas teams:
