Four weeks into a six-game regular season, the spring football playoff picture is starting to take some shape. It should round into even more form after this week especially in Class 5A where the top four clubs in the first composite rankings of the season clash.
With two weeks remaining in the regular season, Colorado Preps provides a first look at composite rankings for the spring football season. This formula, which combines rankings of RPI, MaxPreps, CHSAA and Packard into one poll, will be used to determine the eight playoff qualifiers in each class.

Glenwood Springs football remained unbeaten in the Spring season with a late 21-14 win over Basalt last week. The win pushed the Demons to number two in the most recent 3A polls and puts them in position for the top overall playoff seed especially if they beat Rifle in week five. The Demons have success on the ground and much of it comes from the work of Blake Nieslanik and he joins Marty Cesario on this episode of Next Up Video.
