The Times' high school football rankings by Ben Bolch:

*--* Rk. Team (Rec. Sec, Div.) Comment (Last week's ranking) 1 CRENSHAW (1-0, City-Division I) What do Cougars have that Servite doesn't? A victory over a legitimate top-five team, for starters. (9) 2 SERVITE (1-0, SS-Pac-5) File triumph over Long Beach Poly as "One to remember, provided Jackrabbits don't finish 0-10." (10) 3 OAKS CHRISTIAN (1-0, SS-Northwest) Rankings committee would be Lion if it said serious consideration was given to moving this team into top spot. (2) 4 ST. BONAVENTURE (1-0, SS-Northern) Seraphs could drop Long Beach Poly into 0-2 hole for first time since . . . records don't seem to go back that far. (4) 5 LAKEWOOD (0-1, SS-Pac-5) Lancers would like a do-over when it comes to the last month after losing top tailback and opener. (3) 6 SHERMAN OAKS NOTRE DAME (0-0, SS-Pac 5) Quarterback Ryan Kasdorf could be doing Texas 200-step if Klein Oak puts him on the run at Cowboys Stadium. (5) 7 CHAPARRAL (0-0, SS-Inland) If the reality TV casting folks are seeking a colorful football coach, Tom Leach is their guy. (7) 8 EDISON (1-0, SS-Pac 5) Two-way lineman Luke Gane needed to appear in only one play to be crowned comeback player of the year. (11) 9 LOYOLA (1-0, SS-Pac 5) Rick Neuheisel might have to travel by F-16 if he wants to see son Jerry play the night before UCLA plays at Tennessee. (14) 10 RANCHO CUCAMONGA (1-0, SS-Central) Sluggish victory over Damien wasn't elementary for quarterback Greg Watson and Cougars. (13) 11 ORANGE LUTHERAN (0-1, SS-Pac 5) No truth to rumor that school becoming The Orange Lutheran after touring Ohio State's athletic facilities. (6) 12 LONG BEACH POLY (0-1, SS-Pac-5) Rankings committee neglected to mention that it was April Fool's Day edition of poll in which Jackrabbits were No. 1. (1) 13 GARDENA SERRA (1-0, SS-Northwest) Having vanquished Silverado by 61 points, Cavaliers ready for gold and platinum challengers. (15) 14 TAFT (0-0, City-Division I) If talented running back Lucky Radley is cleared to play, Toreadors' opponents should start fan group called the Boo Radleys. (16) 15 TESORO (0-1, SS-Pac 5) Titans feeling rather Lilliputian after dropping second consecutive game going back to last season. (8) 16 LOS ALAMITOS (0-0, SS-Pac 5) Mayfair could be crying foul by time game against powerful Griffins is over. (17) 17 CORONA CENTENNIAL (0-0, SS-Inland) Huskies are making a habit of opening, closing seasons with games against Chaparral. (18) 18 CRESPI (1-0, SS-Pac 5) Seeking schedule upgrade, Celts are in negotiations to drop Birmingham and add Garfield. (19) 19 MISSION VIEJO (1-0, SS-Pac 5) Diablos' hopes for a repeat of 37-7 playoff romp over Loyola could be grounded by Cubs' running game. (20) 20 MOORPARK (1-0, SS-Northern) Budget cutbacks thwart Musketeers coaches' request to scout Sherman Oaks Notre Dame's opener in Texas. (21) 21 CARSON (1-0, City-Division I) Surprising Colts part of reason Trinity League went 2-4 in opening week. (NR) 22 NORCO (0-0, SS-Inland) Cougars might be last potential stumbling block for Crenshaw on way to CIF state bowl championship game. (22) 23 VALENCIA (0-0, SS-Northern) Vikings coaches take team to Magic Mountain to get thrill ride out of system before opener against Thousand Oaks. (23) 24 REDLANDS EAST VALLEY (0-0, SS-Inland) Victory over Clovis East would truly make Wildcats the Beasts of the East. (24) 25 CHARTER OAK (1-0, SS-Southeast) Unlike Lakewood and Mater Dei, Chargers got the memo that City Section is better this year. (25) *--*
