Football Class 5A Rankings

#1 Pomona (4-1)
Last: Beat Valor Christian 23-16

Had they lost to Valor Christian last week, the 5A rankings would have been more difficult to compile but instead they rallied from 13 points down at halftime in the state championship rematch. The Panthers have won three straight and remain perfect against Colorado opponents.

Next: vs Rock Canyon
#2 Mullen (3-2)
Last: Lost to Orange Lutheran CA 49-33

We keep the Mustangs at number two this week despite the loss in California as Colorado Preps does not pay much attention to out of state losses. Mullen's only in-state blemish is by one point to #1 Pomona so we feel good about keeping them at #2.

Next: vs Mountain Range
#3 Columbine (4-1)
Last: Beat Chatfield 28-7

In rolling past arch-rival Chatfield, the number one team in 4A last week, the Rebels solidify their hold on the third spot in Class 5A. In three weeks, they challenge Mullen in league action but two quality opponents are in between this week and that game.

Next: vs Denver East
#4 Regis (3-1)
Last: Beat Highlands Ranch 35-17

The Raiders scored a solid win over a good club last week and used the decision to bump one spot in the rankings. They of course were also aided by the Valor Christian loss to Pomona.

Next: at Mountain Vista
#5 Eaglecrest (4-0)
Last: Beat Cherokee Trail 21-7

The Raptors were just outside the top five last week but the loss by Valor also aided them in their move up the polls. It's the highest ever ranking for Eaglecrest by Colorado Preps.

Next: vs Bear Creek
