FOX Sports West High School Football Rankings: Week 5
Week 4 of our CIF-SS football coverage is in the books.
Now, onto Week 5:
Ranking (Previous) School (Record)
1. (1) Mater Dei (5-0)
The Monarchs pitched another shutout, their third of the year, to cruise past an always solid Edison team 42-0. It's tough to find any discernible weakness in this team. Mater Dei has a bye this week before starting Trinity League Play.
2. (2) Corona Centennial (4-1)
The Huskies had no problems with nationally rated Henderson (Nev.) Liberty, winning 49-32 in a game that wasn't as close as the final score. Star quarterback Tanner McKee went out with a head injury so the Huskies bye this weekend couldn't have come at a better time.
3. (3) St. John Bosco (4-1)
The Braves played one of the top teams in Northern California, Stockton (Calif.) St. Mary's and dismantled them pulling away 55-16.
Re'al Mitchell was the star of the game showing why he's one of the top dual threat quarterbacks in the '18 class.
4. (4) Mission Viejo (5-0)
The Diablos finished off a strong non-league schedule 5-0 and did it in impressive fashion. This is a young team that hasn't come close to peaking yet and has room for improvement over the course of the season.
5. (5) Rancho Cucamonga (4-0)
Were the Cougars looking ahead to their huge game with Upland this weekend? Rancho had a surprisingly tough time against Citrus Hill over the weekend but good teams find a way to win close games and the Cougars are a very good team.
6. (9) JSerra (4-1)
We love the non-league schedule the Lions played and capped it off with a very nice win over a solid Los Alamitos team 45-35. We thought they were a year away, we were wrong, the Lions should be very competitive in the rugged Trinity League.
7. (11) Vista Murrieta (4-1)
Welcome back Cole Dubots. The explosive running back who has been out since week 1 of the season, showed his game breaking ability running for 140 yards and two touchdowns on just eight carries in the Broncos 50-6 win over perennial L.A city power Crenshaw.
8. (NR) Serra (2-3) (vs. Loyola, 7p, Prep Zone)
The Cavs were very impressive shutting down the Chaminade running game and making several big plays on offense to win 30-28. Quarterback Jalani Eason ran for two touchdowns and threw for two scores as well and Serra looks primed for a strong run through league play.
9. (14) La Mirada (3-2) (at Norwalk 7p, Prep Zone)
No one has played a tougher schedule in the state than the Matadores.
They took on Mater Dei and St. John Bosco, lived to tell about it and look stronger as a result. At this point, we don't see a team on their schedule that should come within a few touchdowns of La Mirada and they look stronger than last year's team that won a state title.
10. (10) Calabasas (4-0)
The Coyotes rolled to another easy win over El Camino Real 42-7 led by big plays from stud athletes Darnay Holmes and junior Bookie Radley. We'll find out just how good Calabasas is this coming week when they take on a very solid Valencia team in what will be their toughest game of the season thus far.
