Power 25 Ranking: Week 7

Toby Bicknell
Texas Scouting Director

TEXAS, USA - Now that we are seven weeks into the season, it’s time to get down to the nitty-gritty, where the rubber meets the road. Strength of District is becoming more important, along with record over the past ten games. This past week saw a lot of movement as there were a number of upsets within the Power 25, and several new teams moving in.

Our scouting staff has seen over 100 High School Games this spring, with over 200 teams covered from all corners of the state.

Steady Clubs

This could essentially be every team in the Power 25, but we wanted to highlight some clubs that have been steady all year with little volatility from week to week.

No. 6 Veterans Memorial moves to 9-1 in District with 7-4 win over Moody, they have won 8 in row to bring their Overall record to 24-3-1, and play in one of the most competitive districts in the state.

No. 7 Prosper just keeps winning at 22-4 (7-1 District) with a two game sweep of McKinney Boyd last week.

No. 11 Wakeland continues to rise in the Power 25 with another 2-0 week and sweep of Frisco Liberty. The Wolverines are now 11-0 in what is turning out to be a very balanced District in Frisco.

No. 13 Kinkaid won three more games this week to move to 21-2 on the year.

No. 21 Mansfield Legacy is having a fantastic year at 20-2. They swept Granbury last week, and still have a big series with Burleson Centennial in two weeks. 

New Teams

No. 16 Allen is 21-4, 8-0 in District with a two game sweep of Jesuit this week and a 5-1 win over Marcus on Saturday. The Eagles have a tough series against McKinney Boyd this week, then Prosper the next week.

No. 22 Flower Mound is back in the ranking after running the table so far in District at 8-0. They swept a solid Hebron club 11-1, and 5-3. The Jag’s have won 9 games in a row since the start of District. Big rivalry series this week against Marcus.

No. 24 Magnolia West is now 18-3, 8-0 in District. They have swept Brenham and Magnolia the past two weeks. They have Waller this week, then A&M Consolidated and College Station to finish the season.

5A STRong

As we break down teams, districts, and the wealth of talent in Texas, it is becoming more and more evident the pure strength of 5A schools this season. There are 10 teams represented in this weeks ranking, and quite honestly, there could be more. Several 5A Districts are the most competitive in the state (19-5A, 9-5A, and 30-5A). If you're wondering where the strongest competition could be in this year's UIL Playoffs, it could be in 5A. 

Bubble Teams

Gregory Portland is certainly deserving of being included this week after beating Calallen 2-1, bringing their overall record to 20-2.

Round Rock is 9-0 in District after going 2-0 with wins over Leander 3-1 and Stony Point 8-4. Plus, they have marquee wins over Southlake Carroll, Coppell, Kingwood Park, and a close loss to Lake Travis. The Dragons are on the rise and have won 9 in a row.

Ridge Point is 17-2-1 and possibly the hottest team in Texas with 17 wins in a row and an undefeated record in District (8-0).

Stratford split a series with No. 9 Memorial and they are now 16-6 and tied for first place in District.

Summer Creek split a series with No. 12 Kingwood and are now 8-2 in District, 17-4 Overall.

Klein Collins is now 13-5 Overall and tied for first in District with The Woodlands at 9-2 after beating Oak Ridge and College Park last week. Big game coming up the last week of the season with the Highlanders on Tuesday, April 26th.

The John Cooper Dragons have won eight in a row to bring their season record to 19-5. The Private School Playoffs are going to be interesting this year.
