VX football rankings as of Sept. 15:


1. Mountain Pointe 4-0

2. Red Mountain 4-0

3. Desert Vista 3-1

4. Brophy 3-2

5. Chandler 4-0

6. Hamilton 2-2

7. Basha 3-1

8. Desert Ridge 3-1

9. Desert Mountain 4-0

10. Westview 3-1

The top five remain the same as all teams won, while Hamilton begins its climb back up with a statement win over Desert Ridge. Basha led Chandler 17-0 at the half before falling apart, but stays at No. 7 for now because it very well could have won. Desert Ridge drops three spots to No. 8. Desert Mountain jumps into the rankings by beating Chaparral, while Westview sticks at 10. Pinnacle is 4-0 on the season but drops just outside the top-10 because it had trouble putting away a winless North Canyon team.


1. Centennial 4-0

2. Marcos de Niza 4-0

3. Salpointe 4-1

4. Ironwood Ridge 4-0

5. Cesar Chavez 4-0

6. Horizon 4-0

7. Chaparral 1-3

8. Notre Dame 2-2

9. Cienega 3-1

10. Perry 2-2

The top-5 here remains the same as everyone was victorious. Horizon and Chaparral flip-flop after the Huskies remained undefeated and the Firebirds went down in the last seconds again, this time to Desert Mountain. Notre Dame got back on track with a rout of Goldwater to move up a couple spots, while Cienega jumps back into the rankings on the heels of three consecutive victories. Perry dropped a couple spots but at least hung with Marcos de Niza on Thursday night, while Apollo drops out after getting blown out by Centennial.


1. Sabino 4-0

2. Cactus 4-1

3. Saguaro 3-1

4. Queen Creek 4-0

5. Liberty 4-0

6. Desert Edge 4-0

7. Thunderbird 2-2

8. Williams Field 4-0

9. Sunrise Mountain 4-0

10. Paradise Valley 2-2

There is a flip at the top, as Sabino rises to No. 1 because Cactus had trouble putting away Greenway. The Cobras drop down to No. 2, followed by Saguaro, Queen Creek, Liberty and Desert Edge, which all won to stay pat. Thunderbird moves up to No. 7 by continuing to impress, while Williams Field drops another spot after barely beating Canyon del Oro. Sunrise Mountain moves up to No. 9, while Paradise Valley barely hangs on at No. 10.


1. Blue Ridge 4-0

2. Show Low 4-0

3. Coolidge 4-0

4. Seton Catholic 3-1

5. Mingus 3-1

No changes here as everyone won out this week. The Seton blowout win of San Tan Foothills was probably most surprising, in as much as the Sabercats were on the border of cracking the rankings and figured to make a better game against the shorthanded Sentinels.


1. NW Christian 4-0

2. Yuma Catholic 3-1

3. Scottsdale Christian 3-1

4. St. Johns 3-1

5. Tempe Prep 3-1

A week after its big win against Seton Catholic, Tempe Prep makes things murky by losing to Arizona Lutheran Academy. ALA is a good team, so it’s not like the Knights were going to cruise by any stretch, but it drops them to No. 5 while everyone else moves up a notch to fill the void, and, in fact, ALA makes a case for breaking into the rankings with a narrow loss to Phoenix Christian followed by three consecutive wins.


1. Pima 4-0

2. Mogollon 4-0

3. Scottsdale Prep at Veritas Prep (Saturday)

4. Joseph City 3-1

5. Joy Christian at Walden Grove (Saturday)

Things get real murky here with upsets and teams playing Saturday night. Joseph City falls from No. 1 after being hammered by Mogollon, 58-26, though another meeting could take place in late October or November between the schools. That pushes Pima to the No. 1 spot, and Mogollon makes a leap to No. 2 with the blowout victory. Joseph City falls to No. 4 for this week, pending what happens with No. 3 Scottsdale Prep and No. 5 Joy Christian, both of whom played Saturday night.
