MSG Varsity FB Power Rankings: WEST/HV
By Kevin Devaney Jr. | Monday, September 20
High school football rankings for week of 9/20/10.
Hudson Valley/Westchester: Top 10 Rankings
1. New Rochelle (2-0): The Huguenots exploded offensively against rival Mount Vernon, which should serve notice to the rest of Section 1. This team is balanced and talented at just about every position.
2. Monroe-Woodbury (3-0): For the second straight week, the Crusaders blew out a Binghamton-area team. They’ll be tested in the next few weeks. But don’t be surprised if the lopsided wins continue.
3. Stepinac (2-0): The CHSFL AA Division might not test this team once all season. Stepinac dominated Cardinal Spellman 42-0 last week.
4. White Plains (2-0): The Tigers put up another impressive showing in a blowout win over Lincoln. The amazing thing is they’ve barely opened their playbook through the first two games.
5. John Jay-EF (2-0): A thrilling victory over Carmel, coupled with an Arlington defeat, bumps the Patriots up a spot in the poll. Odds are they don’t go unbeaten in a league that’s as good and balanced as ever.
6. Rye (2-0): The Garnets only played a half against Saunders before the storms came and finalized a 30-0 victory. The rest will be needed with Nyack coming to town on Friday night.
7. Harrison (2-0): Another dominant effort against a solid football team proves this Harrison team might have what it takes to break through this season.
8. Mahopac (2-0): The Indians took a gamble and won a thriller on Friday night, knocking off Arlington by a point. This team is here to stay.
9. Scarsdale (2-0): What a wild win for the Raiders on Sunday at Ossining. But it’s the kind of victory that only builds confidence and propels teams to wins down the road.
10t. Iona Prep (1-1): A team that looked like it was in shambles a week before went out on Saturday and knocked off one of the CHSFL’s best. Hard to figure this team out right now. But something just might have clicked.
10t. Clarkstown North (2-0): When you beat North Rockland for the first time in 31 years, you deserve to be in the rankings. The momentum of that win should bode well for the Rams as they take on Mahopac on Friday.
On the brink: Arlington (1-1); Wallkill (3-0); Bronxville (2-0); Ketcham (1-1); Nyack (2-0); Poughkeepsie (2-0); Horace Greeley (2-0); North Rockland (0-2).
