High school football: Michael O’Brien’s Super 25 rankings for Week 7

Week 6 wasn’t as tumultuous as the rest of the season. But both Mount Carmel and Loyola received real tests, which was interesting.

The Caravan and Ramblers won, but the close games were good signs for Brother Rice and Marist.

Three teams join the rankings this week. St Charles North and Lake Zurich have been knocking on the door for a long time and could have entered any of the past few weeks.

The North Stars have won five consecutive games, with quality wins against Lake Zurich, Wheaton North and Geneva. Every game they’ve played this season has been against a difficult opponent.

Lake Zurich isn’t quite as battle-tested as St. Charles North but has likely deserved a spot since beating Warren in Week 5.

Plainfield North is the third newcomer. The Tigers sneak in at No. 25. The Southwest Prairie doesn’t appear to be particularly strong this season, but the win against Naperville Central in Week 2 looks quite a bit better after the Redhawks knocked off Naperville North on Friday.

Notre Dame, Glenbrook South and Naperville North all drop out this week after picking up losses. It wouldn’t be surprising to see any of the three back at some point later this season.

Geneva, Reed-Custer and South Elgin are the teams that just missed the cut today.
