With plenty of big contests in Week 1, there was a shuffling of the deck in this week’s Trib 10 power rankings.
Nobody fell out of the power rankings this week, but both top-ranked Gateway and No. 6 North Allegheny fell after losses. The Gators dropped after losing to the new No. 1 team, Thomas Jefferson, while North Allegheny slid after a one-sided loss to Ohio power Central Pinkerington.
Teams are listed with overall record and last week’s ranking. These rankings have zero classification boundaries.
