As is a tradition, when the regular season ends, so do the rankings.

The number you will see by the names from here on out is the playoff seeding.

After two weeks of little change, only two teams kept their spot, the top two teams.

No. 1 (Last Week No. 1) Casa Grande (10-0)…Congratulations to Trent Herzog and everybody involved with the Casa Grande football program on a fabulous season.  Historic season has one more chore.

No. 2 (No. 2) Analy (9-1)…Even with a week off things went their way to get them the No. 4 seed.  That was some brilliant scheduling, getting a week off before the playoffs to end the season and to play Pittsburgh to begin it.

No. 3 (No. 5) Middletown (9-1)…Only defeat was because of some faulty paperwork.  On the field they were untouchable.

No. 4 (No. 4) Cardinal Newman (7-3)…The combined record of the three teams they lost to is 26-4.  It is the first time in eleven years at the school that a Paul Cronin team lost two league games.

No. 5 (No. 8) St. Helena (8-2)…Closest win was on opening week when they defeated Tomales 20-0.  Won seven of eight with lone loss to Middletown 

No. 6 (No. 3) Montgomery (8-2)…It seemed like the Vikings were warning us for a game like they had against Windsor.  They are hoping they got that out of their system and will take the No. 4 seed and run with it.

No. 7 (No. 9) Rancho Cotate (6-4)…There losses are to teams with a combined record of 34-6.  That and the win over Windsor got them a home game.

No. 8 (NR) St. Vincent (7-2)…Hung around and hung around then won the NCL II/Bay League Championship.

No. 9 (NR) Healdsburg (6-4)…Wins over St. Helena and Piner were the key ones to get them a No. 3 seed.

No. 10 (NR) Windsor (5-5)…Came up big in a must win situation.  According to Computer Rankings, toughest schedule in NBL
