S.F. Bay Area Top 25 Football (1)

Here are rankings done by longtime Bay Area analyst Harold Abend and done for use on Antioch High football game broadcasts. We’ll run the lists with a short intro on our blog. Anyone wishing to see writeups and breakdowns of the top teams in the Bay Area and in the state, sign up for our Gold Club membership. For details, CLICK HERE.

Some news of note that possibly the ordinary Bay Area high school football fans might not be aware of is the top league in the CIF North Coast Section with respect to the new buzz phrase “competitive equity,” the East Bay Athletic League, is now at nine teams with San Ramon Dougherty Valley and Dublin joining.

The result is while some teams get as many as 3-4 non-league games depending on the size of their league, action in the EBAL begins this week.

In these week one rankings and just like in the preseason rankings, the top two Bay Area spots still reside in Concord.
