Madison, Hamilton ahead of Jefferson

October 16, 2008

We’ve been keeping up with HighschoolRivals.com Top 100 football teams in the U.S. this season – not for historical or educational purposes, but simply because several of the teams are named after (or have the same last names as) a couple of the Founding Fathers, including TJ himself (which falls under the category of ‘TJ-related’ as well as fun!).

This week Madison County of Flo-rida holds strong in 34th place. Hamilton of AZ is number 40, while Thomas Jefferson (in PA) hovers just outside the Top 50 in 52nd place. Undefeated Independence is 83rd, while the two Trinitys (in 1st and 78th place, respectively) still seek that elusive third.

A special shoutout to Columbus (of Miami, FL) in honor of Monday’s greatest single day surge in the history of the U.S. stock market (on Columbus Day, no less).

Madison still ahead of Jefferson, Independence – 3rd Trinity still sought…

October 2, 2008

Just for fun I’ve been keeping up with the high school football rankings over at highschoolrivals.com (See posts here and here).

Madison County continues to climb, ranked 34th this week. Thomas Jefferson (of Jefferson Hills, PA) slips 52nd, despite crushing their last opponent, 48-7. Independence stays in the Top 100, clocking in at number 87.

Trinity of Euless, TX stays on top, but a third Trinity has not cracked the Top 100 (Trinity of Lousiville, KY is 48th).

Madison Overtakes Jefferson…

September 18, 2008

…in High School Football, that is.  Madison County, perhaps spurred on by Constitution Day, shot up to #42 in highschoolrivals.com Top 100 weekly rankings. Thomas Jefferson slips to #51 and Independence is #91.

Trinity (of Texas) sits atop the rankings, while Trinity (of Louisville, KY) is 71st. That leaves on Trinity short on the list.
