#CFC50 2017 high school RANKINGS (3): Ravens crack top 10, Newman plummets

For the eighth year in a row, Canadafootballchat.com (CFC) is pleased to bring you the national high school football rankings known as the #CFC50. The #CFC50 rankings considers all conference and non-conference games (in Canada and the United States) while scrimmages are not evaluated (there is no such thing as an exhibition game – those are classified as non-conference games).

How is the #CFC50 evaluated?

Leagues included in rankings: British Columbia AAA Varsity, Alberta Tier One, Saskatchewan 12-man 4A, Manitoba AAA Varsity, Ontario OFSAA Bowl AAA qualified teams, Quebec Juvenile Division 1, New Brunswick 12-man, Nova Scotia Tier 1.

The #CFC50 is a RELATIVE RANKING that considers top tier leagues from all eight high school playing provinces (minimum one team represented from each province) and the strength of the league that they play in. Additional criteria used to determine the relative ranking are the ability to accomplish winning a championship, the impact players and performers on that team (ie. #CFC100s, CDN All-Stars etc.), and a team’s coaching and recent tradition.

The CFC Scouting Bureau consists of CFC Reporters, CFC Scouts, and selected local reporters and scouts who submit local ranking results on a weekly basis. The #CFC50 is released every Monday (other than on Holidays) at 12 noon.

No. 1 South Lions (1-0) – The Lions imposed their will on the Nelson Lords with a convincing 40-0 win as the Lords second shut out loss in as many weeks. Clarke Road needs to know something is coming down the road for next week’s game. We guess being ranked No.1 pre-season wasn’t a curse at all.

No. 2 St. Francis Browns (1-0) – Looks like the Browns will once again dominate in league play as they beat the Ernest Manning Griffins 42-0. Look for them to do the same against Crescent Heights on Friday.

No. 3 Séminaire Saint-François Blizzard (3-0) – The weather forecast in Quebec continues to look cold with a 100% chance of a blizzard…can anybody stop Mother Nature – a.k.a The BLIZZARD!

No. 4 St. Paul’s Crusaders (2-0) – The game of the season already happened with the Crusaders beating out Vincent Massey 29-23. It’ll be interesting to see if anybody (other than Massey) can give them a run for their money in league play.

No. 5 W.F. Herman Green Griffins – Griffins did not play, sit idle.

No. 6 A. N. Myer Marauders (1-0) – With a 35-28 win over St. Marcellinus, the Marauders looked good in their first game in the post-Ford era. How much they improve over the course of the year will be something to keep your eye on.

No. 7 Curé-Antoine-Labelle Wolves (3-0) – With their win, 55-17, over Academie Les Estacades, the Wolves continue their undefeated season. The strength of the wolf is in the pack, but will the pack freeze in the Blizzard?

No. 8 St. Thomas More Knights (1-1) – The Knights ran over the Cardinals, 37-0. Many of us were hoping this would be a closer game because of the rivalry between the two programs and the fact that they are one of few teams who have actually competed with STM over the last few years. The big question is how will the Gaels do against the Knights as they have been rumoured to be improving.

No. 9 Leboldus Golden Suns (2-0) – Leboldus continues to win by small margins. Miller was supposed to be one of their bigger tests this year and they passed that with a 21-7 victory. 

No. 10 Terry Fox Ravens (1-1) – Breaking back into the top 10, the Ravens unleashed a very physical brand of football against CFC50 Mt. Doug this past weekend with a 24-14 win.

    Too bad that Saskatchewan teams still get shunned in these rankings even after two years in a row playing in the Gold medal games in the U18 Canada cup. Ontario teams lose but still seem to hold their spot up in the ranking. Sure wish their was more attention given to us out west.

  2. shut up lol

  3. This could easily been said about the east too, it’s not a easy process and list is subjective.

    I would say there is a fair amount of consistency over time with the schools on the list that perform well over years. To say one team is better then another at any given point from one side of country to the next would be very difficult I would think. They have criteria they use to nail done list. Provincial ball and high school ball are not the same. Not all the best athletics play on those provincial team

  4. Couple of results missing from Ontario
    Herman, Windsor won 1-0 on Friday when FJ Brennan declined to play
    St Ignatius, Thunder Bay won 27-0 on Saturday over St Patrick in league opener.

  5. My bad,
    St Ignatius won 29-0, not 27-0 … brain cramp!

  6. I gotta say I don’t think that the centennial charargers should be that high on the list, they won by 1 point against st Joseph and really shouldn’t have won that game they let a team in a division below them score 21 points on them also
