Super 10 football rankings

Rank, Previous, School, Record, Classification

1. (1) Trinity Christian (9-0), 1M

Last week: d. Providence, 55-10*.

This week: vs. Quincy Munroe (4-5), 7:30 p.m.

Notable: The Conquerors have gone wire to wire as the area’s No. 1 team. They shouldn’t have a problem here wrapping up another perfect regular season for coach Verlon Dorminey.

2. (2) Bartram Trail (9-0), 4S

Last week: d. Oakleaf, 55-20*.

This week: vs. Mandarin (5-3).

Notable: The Bears have gotten better by the week and are in position to polish off just the second unbeaten regular season in program history (2019). A win would be the 180th for Bartram, all of those under longtime coach Darrell Sutherland. The Bears are strong enough to contend for a state title in Class 4S.

3. (3) Jackson (8-1), 2M

Last week: d. Raines, 21-12*.

This week: at First Coast (5-3), 6:30 p.m.

Notable: The Tigers won their first district title since 2009 last week, completing their turnaround under coach Christopher Foy. They’ll add the Gateway Conference crown with a win over the Buccaneers.

4. (4) Bradford (9-0), 2S

Last week: d. Palatka, 35-14*.

This week: at Suwannee (7-2), 7:30 p.m.

Notable: The district champion Tornadoes gave up a couple touchdowns last week (they’ve allowed three now all season) but they’re still on a tear. This shapes up to be their most difficult opponent of the regular season against the red-hot Bulldogs.

5. (6) University Christian (8-1), 1M

Last week: Off.

This week: vs. (6) Bishop Kenny (7-1), Thursday.

Notable: The Christians seem pretty safe as the No. 2 seed in Region 1-1M, but a win over surging Kenny would certainly make things interesting. They’ll likely face Trinity Christian in the regional finals later this month.

6. (NR) Bishop Kenny (8-1), 2M

Last week: d. Bolles, 14-13.

This week: at (5) University Christian (8-1), Thursday.

Notable: The Crusaders wrapped up the District 2-2M title last week with a history-making win over the Bulldogs. They hadn’t beaten Bolles since 1977 before last week. Coach Tim Krause has built this program from a one-win team in 2020 to back-to-back playoff qualifiers. They end the regular season with another big test.

7. (7) Fletcher (7-2), 3M

Last week: d. First Coast, 30-18*.

This week: at Atlantic Coast (0-9), 6:30 p.m.

Notable: The Senators won their second straight district title under coach Ciatrick Fason and have been far more consistent (and dangerous) this season than last. They’re headed for the state playoffs likely as an eight-win team barring a massive upset by the Stingrays.

8. (8) Creekside (7-2), 4S

Last week: d. Atlantic Coast, 36-7.

This week: at Ponte Vedra (5-4).

Notable: The Knights are positioned well for an at-large playoff berth, but an eight-win regular season will help solidify their position in Region 1-4S. The Sharks are still battling for a playoff spot so this one should have a postseason feel to it.

9. (10) White (6-2), 2M

Last week: d. Westside, 34-0.

This week: vs. Baldwin (8-1), 6:30 p.m.

Notable: The Commanders officially sewed up the district title last week and get a very challenging regular season finale against a playoff-bound Indians team that is surging.

10. (5) Raines (6-2), 2M

Last week: lost to Jackson, 21-12*.

This week: at Westside (1-8), 6:30 p.m.

Notable: The Vikings are heading to the state playoffs, just not as district champs. They wrap things up against a Wolverines team that has shown flashes of big things, just not enough.
