FOOTBALL: Pre-Season “Great 8 & 4 More” Rankings

Using a very complicated, scientific, and mathematical formula; the Inland_Sports Show Super Computer was able to squirt out (as Geoff Gorham put it) these preseason “Great 8 & 4 More” power rankings based on a points system.

Centennial checks in at the top spot with 48 points; followed by Murrieta Valley, Heritage, Vista Murrieta and Roosevelt rounding out the top five spots. There were several ties including a log jam for the 8th spot in the Great 8.

FOOTBALL: Rancho Verde, Corona, Chino Hills, and Orange Vista reach Southwest County Semis

Rancho Verde, Corona, Chino Hills, and Orange Vista reached the semifinals of the 13th annual Southwest County Passing Tournament at Paloma Valley High School.

After a long, hot day that included a weather delay because of lightning, the tournament was called-off early following a scuffle between Corona and Hillcrest in the quarterfinals.

Orange Vista, playing with a team with no varsity experience, made a cinderella run to reach the semis after topping Ventura in the quarterfinals.

Rancho Verde outlasted Vista Murrieta in another great quarterfinal match-up.

FOOTBALL: The “Great 8 & 4 More” Rankings after First Round of Playoffs

screen-shot-2016-11-12-at-5-53-52-pm

Everybody and their brother puts together a “High School Football Poll,” and to be honest, most of them look like they don’t even go the games!?!? Inland_Sports covers about a dozen football games every week so not only do we see all these teams, but we got the video highlights to back up our rankings.

With that said … I think we’ve been pretty darn close all season and this week’s rankings prove that. Roosevelt cracks the “Great 8” after wins against Norco and San Jacinto in back-to-back weeks.

Meanwhile, there’s three teams in the “4 More” that have closed out their season: Cajon, Citrus Hill, and Paloma Valley.

That’ll give a couple teams that are currently still in the playoffs, an opportunity to get off the bubble and into the “Great 8 & 4 More” — we’re looking at you Norte Vista, Summit, San Gorgonio, Notre Dame, Rubidoux, Redlands, etc.

FOOTBALL: The “Great 8 & 4 More” Rankings after Week 10

screen-shot-2016-11-07-at-4-37-11-pm

Have a look at the Inland_Sports “Great 8 & 4 More” football rankings as we head into the CIF Southern Section playoffs. We actually had some significant changes now that the regular season is in the rear view mirror.

Paloma Valley slides just a little bit, down to #7 after falling to #2 Heritage 35-13 in the Menifee Bowl.

Yucaipa cracks the “Great 8” and checks in at #8 after finishing in 2nd place in the Citrus Belt League.

And how could we ignore Roosevelt after head coach Tommy Leach and the Mustangs defeated Norco for 2nd place in the

land of the Big VIII! Roosevelt’s only losses this season came against Centennial and Cajon.

We broke down the final week of the regular season and previewed the playoffs on the latest Inland_Sports Show on Fox Sports 1350. We had special guest The Heritage Patriots in-studio as well! Check it out …
