FB: Sac-Joaquin Section Top 25 (7)

Due to previous No. 8 Grant losing to Sheldon plus previous No. 9 Rocklin and No. 10 Whitney both getting knocked off by Woodcreek and Roseville, respectively, there are a lot of teams on the move in this week’s rankings.

It was not a good night to be a high school football team from Rocklin last Friday. Both Rocklin High and Whitney High of Rocklin were in the top 10 of last week’s CIF Sac-Joaquin Section Top 25 rankings coming into the night and both lost.

Rocklin, which earlier this season beat Clovis West, one of the top teams in the CIF Central Section, and had a one-point loss to Grant and a one-point win over Whitney, fell to Woodcreek of Roseville 24-14. Isaiah Ajayi led the way with 144 yards rushing and two TDs.

Whitney, which earlier this season beat Granite Bay by 20 points and just had the one-point loss to Rocklin, was thumped by Roseville 35-14. One of Roseville’s TDs came on a one-handed catch by tight end Jimmy Jaggers, one of the top tight ends in the state and nation.

With the wins, both Roseville and Woodcreek had to come up in this week’s rankings in front of Rocklin and Whitney. Roseville moved from No. 25 to No. 21 while Woodcreek moved from unranked to No. 22. Roseville wasn’t higher due to a 42-7 loss to Antelope, which is still unbeaten and is now up to No. 13 overall in the section. Woodcreek is still only 4-4, but all four of the losses are to higher-ranked teams and there’s also a head-to-head win over Davis, which is currently ranked higher as co-leader in the Delta League.
