MaxPreps Top 25 Since 2009
By Jordan Divens

The high school football season is almost here, and that means it’s time for everyone to start paying even more attention to prep football. It also means that in a few weeks we’ll see some smaller schools pop up as we get closer to the season and MaxPreps releases its rankings. Many of these smaller schools may be new to you, so we put together a list of every team that has appeared in the MaxPreps Top 25 since 2009 (the year MaxPreps records began). There are currently 124 teams on this list, but within the next month or two there will be many more. Let’s take a look at every team that has appeared in the MaxPreps Top 25 since 2009.

2009

2009 was a great year for prep football. The list of teams that have made it into the MaxPreps Top 25 since 2009 started with a bang. In 2009, there were six teams in the MaxPreps Top 25 including reigning national champion and number one team on this list, St. John Bosco Braves. Bosco beat their opponents that season by an average of 44 points per game and won their state’s championship game 41-14 over Mission Viejo. There were also four schools that had never appeared in the MaxPreps Top 25 before: Redondo Union, Valor Christian (CO), Mater Dei (CA), and Boca Raton Community School.

2010

The 2010 season was a big one for high school football. MaxPreps lists the number of teams that made their first appearance in the top 25, and this season saw 17 new names join the list.
