Once again I am proud to be included in the ACS Football Rankings, which is the only state-wide poll with every corner of the state covered.

The methodology: Each rank is assigned a point value based on the rank. The 10 teams with the most points are listed in descending point order. Numbers in parentheses indicate previous week's ranking. "NR" indicates not ranked in the previous week.

It is the brainchild of Paul Gallegos and can be found at http://www.dkcomm.net/dkcrate/hs/
