PIAA finalists stand atop Trib 10 football power rankings
Wednesday, November 25, 2020 | 4:09 PM
Two WPIAL champions are spectators while the four others are Hershey bound, looking to add to their golden seasons.
Four times in the 33-year history of the PIAA football playoffs has the WPIAL captured three state football championships in a year.
In 2001, ‘05, ‘07 and ‘17, three WPIAL teams returned home with a PIAA title to go with their district crown.
Can the WPIAL add to that list, or, perhaps in this unique season, set a record with four state champions?
Before finding out how much power district teams have this weekend, here are the penultimate Trib 10 power rankings.
Last week’s rankings are after the team’s record and before this week’s opponent.
These rankings have zero classification boundaries.
