Super 10

Rank (Previous) School, Record, Classification

1. (1) Trinity Christian (3-0), Class 2A

Last week: d. Zarephath Academy, 55-8.

This week: vs. Clearwater International Academy (3-0), 7:30 p.m.

Notable: Coach Verlon Dorminey heads to picking up his 300th career win this week before the schedule jumps up considerably.

2 (2) Bolles (3-0), Class 4A

Last week: d. (10) St. Augustine, 32-27.

This week: at Fernandina Beach (0-3).

Notable: Bolles has two high quality wins so far, including a rout of then No. 5 Columbia (34-7) and a tight win over No. 10 St. Augustine last week. Next week, it’s University Christian followed by No. 1 Trinity on Oct. 1.

3. (4) Riverside (3-0), Class 6A

Last week: d. Ribault, 34-8.

This week: at Orange Park (1-2)*.

Notable: The Generals are chopping teams up with defense. They’ve given up just 18 points all season and no more than eight in a game. Their first significant test comes on Oct. 8 against Columbia. The Tigers are probably the first team on the schedule that can test Riverside.

4. (3) Bartram Trail (2-1), Class 8A

Last week: lost to Tallahassee Lincoln, 37-31.

This week: at Mandarin (1-2), 6:30 p.m.*

5. (NR) Creekside (3-0), Class 8A

Last week: d. Fleming Island, 26-0.

This week: at Sandalwood (1-2), 6:30 p.m.*

6. (7) Raines (1-1), Class 5A

Last week: Off.

This week: at Jackson (2-1), 6:30 p.m.

Notable: The Vikings were off and jumped a spot. Interesting game against the Tigers, who shut down Fletcher last week. Expect a solid defensive battle in this one.

7. (9) Baker County (2-1), Class 5A

Last week: d. Ponte Vedra, 26-7.

This week: vs. Paxon (1-2)*.

Notable: Wildcats rebounded on defense after a tough Week 2 loss to Viera. District play begins against the Golden Eagles before a big game next week against Mandarin.

8. (NR) Columbia (2-1), Class 6A

Last week: d. (9) Oakleaf, 27-23.

This week: vs. Englewood (1-2), 7:30 p.m.*

Last week: lost to (8) Columbia, 27-23.

This week: at Camden County (3-1), 7:30 p.m.

This week: at Middleburg (3-0)*.
