Defending PIAA champion Southern Columbia was ranked Sunday as the No. 1 small school football team in the country by the website High School Football America.

The District 4 power has won the state’s Class 2A title three of the past four years and owns nine PIAA titles overall. The Tigers defeated Wilmington, 49-14, in the PIAA championship last season.

They’re 8-2 in their last 10 trips to Hershey, with losses to Steel Valley in 2016 and Clairton in 2011.

Southern Columbia features rising senior receiver Julian Fleming, an Ohio State commit and one of the top recruits in the country.

Also making the Small School Top 25 were Farrell at No. 14 and Philadelphia’s West Catholic at No. 19.
