Top 25 football rankings

Crenshaw remains in top spot despite poor defensive showing, and Anaheim Servite maintains its spot in rankings entering showdown later this week with Encino Crespi.

September 14, 2009

*--* Rk. Team (Rec. Sec, Div.) Comment (Last week's ranking) 1 CRENSHAW (2-0, City-Division I) Coach Robert Garrett wore sunglasses against Norco to shield eyes from shaky defense. (1) 2 SERVITE (2-0, SS-Pac-5) During Crespi week, Coach Troy Thomas knows what Phil Jackson feels like when Lakers play Chicago Bulls. (2) 3 ST. BONAVENTURE (2-0, SS-Northern) Seraphs are so good they might skip invitation from Pac-5 and head straight for Pac-10. (4) 4 OAKS CHRISTIAN (2-0, SS-Northwest) Laugh factory could close regarding Lions' schedule if they beat mighty Sammamish (Wash.) Skyline. (3) 5 LAKEWOOD (1-1, SS-Pac-5) USC-bound Jesse Scroggins gives a "How do you do?" shout-out to 0-2 rival Long Beach Poly. (5) 6 EDISON (2-0, SS-Pac 5) Going to play at 2-0 Dana Hills won't be as carefree as most trips to the beach. (8) 7 RANCHO CUCAMONGA (2-0, SS-Central) Sequentially speaking, Cougars should follow game against Carter with one against Reagan. (10) 8 ORANGE LUTHERAN (0-1, SS-Pac 5) Scary thought for Lancers: Tustin tailback Anthony Wilkerson compares favorably to DeShaun Foster. (11) 9 CORONA CENTENNIAL (1-0, SS-Inland) Matt Logan rumored to be next Oakland Raiders coach because all he does is win, baby. (17) 10 GARDENA SERRA (2-0, SS-Northwest) Any hits on an opponent's midsection Friday could be shrugged off as going for Carson's ribs. (13) 11 MOORPARK (1-0, SS-Northern) Brody Rohach, Austin Edmonson, A.J. Dettorre are three Musketeers Sherman Oaks Notre Dame can't stop. (20) 12 CHAPARRAL (0-1, SS-Inland) It could be "Valley of the Dead" if Pumas stumble against Paloma Valley or Valley View. (7) 13 TAFT (1-0, City-Division I) Win over Sherman Oaks Notre Dame would prompt City Section to request two CIF state championship bowl berths. (14) 14 LOS ALAMITOS (1-0, SS-Pac 5) Outscored by 60 points in first two games, Fremont should request running clock in first quarter vs. Griffins. (16) 15 CRESPI (2-0, SS-Pac 5) Celts ready to hum a different tune after losing "Battle of Bagpipes" last year. (18) 16 MISSION VIEJO (2-0, SS-Pac 5) Exavier Edwards no longer welcome at Loyola hot spot John O'Groats after helping Diablos rout Cubs. (19) 17 SHERMAN OAKS NOTRE DAME (1-1, SS-Pac 5) Knights' defense misinterprets Moorpark's inkblot schemes, fails (Brody) Rohach test. (6) 18 CARSON (2-0, City-Division I) Showdown with Gardena Serra worthy of a Goodyear blimp fly-over. (21) 19 VALENCIA (1-0, SS-Northern) If talented running back Steven Manfro grew out his hair, you could say he had a man-'fro. (23) 20 LOYOLA (1-1, SS-Pac 5) Anthony Barr's broken ankle could result in lost season for Cubs. (9) 21 REDLANDS EAST VALLEY (1-0, SS-Inland) A loss to San Gorgonio would be a red flag one week before Orange Lutheran showdown. (24) 22 CHARTER OAK (2-0, SS-Southeast) Diamond Bar will be the amuse-bouche for Chargers before the mouthful that is Rancho Cucamonga. (25) 23 FOUNTAIN VALLEY (2-0, SS-Pac-5) Barons ding Tesoro as a warm-up for "Battle for the Bell" next month against Edison. (NR) 24 NORCO (0-1, SS-Inland) What Coach Todd Gerhart described as "junior varsity mistakes" cost Cougars' big boys. (22) 25 NARBONNE (1-0, City-Division I) Gauchos could drop Long Beach Poly to 0-3 for first time since Jackrabbits wore leather helmets. (NR) *--*
