THE TIMES' HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL RANKINGS, INCLUDING RECORDS, SECTIONS AND COMMENTS BY BEN BOLCH:

Rk.; SCHOOL; COMMENT (LAST WEEK)

1. COR. CENTENNIAL (4-0, SS-Inland) Since moving into top spot, team's 275-pound linemen have been telling everyone, "It's good to be Husky." (1)

2. L.B. POLY

(4-0, SS-Pac-5) Jackrabbits notify DNC and RNC that they're also planning to run in 2008. (2)

3. ST. BONAVENTURE (4-0, SS-Northern) CIF state bowl representatives might have to make room for Orange and Fiesta counterparts in press box Friday. (3)

4. MISSION VIEJO

(5-0, SS-Pac-5) Who would have imagined five years ago that Diablos' biggest challenge in South Coast League might come from Tesoro? (4)

5. CRESPI

(3-1, SS-Pac-5) Rumor has it a Celts freshman saw "Idle" on schedule last week and asked his coach if they were any good. (5)

6. SERVITE

(3-1, SS-Pac-5) Friars must remember to dot I's and cross Ts to get signature victory against Sherman Oaks Notre Dame. (7)

7. EDISON

(4-1, SS-Pac-5) As far as Mater Dei's defense is concerned, Chargers' quarterback is just plain vile. (11)

8. SO NOTRE DAME

(4-0, SS-Pac-5) Knights glad their quarterback stuck with football after spurning offer to star in "Kasdorf on Golf." (8)

9. OAKS CHRISTIAN (5-0, SS-Northwest) Priest scheduled to be on hand Friday to issue last rites to winless Bishop Diego before kickoff. (9)

10. REDLANDS EAST VALLEY (4-0, SS-Inland) From sound of things, Yucaipa was as lost against Wildcats as Andy Griffith in "What It Was, Was Football." (10)

11. VISTA MURRIETA

(5-0, SS-Inland) Broncos seem right at rankings home with blowout of Peninsula in first week in top 25. (12)

12. LOS OSOS

(3-1, SS-Central) Grizzlies' not-so-special teams get it together one week after suffering two bad punt snaps and a missed field goal. (13)

13. BISHOP AMAT

(3-1, SS-Pac 5) Uh-oh alert for Lancers: Diamond Ranch's three losses have come to teams that are a combined 12-1. (14)

14. UPLAND

(5-0, SS-Central) Stanford-bound QB Josh Nunes wouldn't provide bulletin-board material for Notre Dame; Tennessee could be another matter. (15)

15. ST. JOHN BOSCO

(5-0, SS-Pac 5) Braves need to beat Santa Margarita on Oct. 17 to keep Eagles below (Kiki) Mendoza line. (16)

16. MATER DEI

(3-2, SS-Pac-5) At this rate, Monarchs just might let Servite scratch that 20-year itch in rivalry. (6)
