Close call for Lincoln-Way East

(10-22-17) Wake Forest remains in the #1 spot after picking a 42-0 win over Rolesville, the Cougars have now won 25 consecutive games in a row.

After last week’s mass changes, this week was pretty calm. Although Lincolnway East found themselves down with under three minutes to go before WR Shane Pedersen (Sr) caught a 75-yard touchdown pass from Brendan Morrissey, saving the Griffins with a perfect season and an 18-14 win at Bolingbrook.

Cartersville remains at #3, thanks to their 39 win streak and All-American QB Trevor Lawrence. On Friday Cartersville beat Chapel Hill 52-0, Trevor Lawrence had another big passing night going 17 for 23 and 283 yards with four touchdowns, making him the Georgia state career passing leader with 13,255 yards passing DeShaun Watson.

On The Bubble

Two teams are ‘on the bubble’, Toledo Whitmer (9-0) remains outside the Top 10 for the 2nd week in a row after beating Toledo St. St. Francis de Sales 34-14.

Miami Northwestern (6-1) , who was in the Top 10 three weeks ago, picked up a big win over Miami Central. Many Floridians thought Central was the best team in the state, so the Bulls redeem themselves after losing to IMG Academy.
