    High School Football

    Anyone from Texas knows that football is life, and only California and Florida come close to producing great players. So, in commemoration of the hub around which everything revolves from September to February, and another year with Texas holding the #1 High School team in the nation, here's the top 25 HS football teams:

    1. Carroll (Southlake, Texas) (16-0)
    2. Springdale (Ark.) (14-0)
    3. Lakeland (Fla.) (15-0)
    4. Independence (Charlotte, N.C.) (15-0)
    5. St. Xavier (Cincinnati) (15-0)
    6. Byrnes (Duncan, S.C.) (15-0)
    7. Hoover (Ala.) (14-1)
    8. South Panola (Batesville, Miss.) (15-0)
    9. Lincoln Way East (Frankfort, Il.) (14-0)
    10. Warren Central (Indianapolis) (14-1)
    11. Lowndes (Valdosta, Ga.) 14-1
    12. Trinity (Euless, Texas) (14-1)
    13. Highland Park (Dallas, Texas) (15-0)
    14. Lufkin, Texas (14-1)
    15. Middletown South (Middletown, N.J.)
    16. Morris, Ill. (14-0)
    17. Ferndale (Wash.) (14-0)
    18. Homewood (Ala.) (15-0)
    19. Skyline (Sammanish, Wash.) (14-0)
    20. St. Bonaventure (Ventura, Calif.) (14-0)
    21. Katy, Texas (14-1)
    22. Gilman (Baltimore, Md.) (9-0)
    23. Brophy Prep (Phoenix, Ariz.) (13-1)
    24. St. Peter's Prep (Jersey City, N.J.)(12-0)
    25. Rose (Greenville, N.C.) 15-0

    By State:

    5 teams -- Texas
    2 teams -- North Carolina, Alabama, Illinois, New Jersey, Washington
    1 team -- Arkansas, Florida, Ohio, South Carolina, Mississippi, Indiana, Georgia, California, Maryland, Arizona

    This is just one reason why Texas is known for its state pride. Come to the land of football, fine honeys, great outdoors, Shiner Bock, and where the Texas flag is flown more than the American flag (and at the same level), and you will become Texan too.

    As you can see, Alabama has two teams. Yup, we might live in the back woods, but we sure can play football.
