Trib HSSN debuts football power rankings for ’19 season
Wednesday, August 28, 2019 | 10:43 PM
Every Thursday during the 2019 WPIAL football season, the TribLive High School Sports Network will release weekly Trib 10 power rankings.
These rankings have zero classification boundaries.
This is the first week of the Trib 10 WPIAL football power rankings where classifications are not reality and the strength of the overall team is considered whether they have 71 or 17 players on the roster.
With Week Zero in the rear-view mirror, most district teams have a game under their belt heading into Week 1.
That’s a good thing because most of the teams are preparing to open conference play this weekend.
Here are the rankings heading into Week 1.
