Polls do not mean much beyond our recognition and some fun for the fans and players. We may not get it right every time, and we may be completely off from what the Coach’s Polls and others are saying. Our polls are based off current records, points differential, and our own knowledge of the teams to put these together.

  1. Charlestown (3A)
  2. Linton (2A)
  3. Owen Valley (3A)
  4. Evansville Reitz (4A)
  5. Bloomington South (5A)
  6. Castle (5A)
  7. Gibson Southern (3A)
  8. Southridge (3A)
  9. East Central (4A)
  10. South Dearborn (3A)
  11. Scecina (2A)
  12. Perry Central (2A)
  13. North Harrison (3A)
  14. Brownstown Central (2A)
  15. Tri (1A)
  16. West Washington (1A)
  17. Providence (1A)
  18. Martinsville (4A)
  19. Southmont (2A)
  20. Tecumseh (1A)
  21. Triton Central (2A)
  22. North Decatur (1A)
  23. Edinburgh (1A)
  24. Evansville Mater Dei (2A)
  25. Boonville (4A)

The Charlestown Pirates are our pick for the number one spot in Week 4. The Pirates, a 3A team just north of Louisville, have been good this year. Looking at the most recent coach’s poll update, we noticed Charlestown wasn’t even ranked in 3A yet. I’m not sure if we’re missing something, of if the polls just aren’t reaching all the way to the Ohio yet. We think these Pirates are good and deserve the top spot.

Linton-Stockton and Owen Valley both would like to be involved in that top spot discussion though. Like a lot of teams on this list, they’ve had a great opening to their seasons. Simply steam rolling their opponents. Should be interesting to see how the season pans out. What do you think of our list for Southern Indiana Top 25 High School Football teams?

BNL wins another one against Ohio River foes and climbs up the rankings in this sectional pairing. Bedford North Lawrence Sophomore Cal Gates had a big game over New Albany. Gates carried the ball 19 times for 270 yards and 3 touchdowns.

East Central continues to blow teams out of the water, but I’m not sure they’ve been the best teams on the block. Silver Creek is starting to make a come back after a slow start.

Martinsville suffers its first loss of the season, knocking them down in the rankings slightly.

North Posey downs sectional 40 rivals Tell City. Tell City has been on the cusps of breaking out. We’re waiting to determine if they’ll take the 4 spot from Paoli once they play in a couple weeks.

Sectional 46

Cambridge City Lincoln, Edinburgh, Knightstown, Milan, North Decatur, South Decatur, Tri

Edinburgh continues to win, bringing them up to their first 4 and 0 start since 1961. Their success is coming behind QB Caleb Murphy and RB Jarrett Turner, but their whole team is full of strong players that are gritting it out. A lot of big things are happening in Edinburgh and their fanbase is exciting about win streak, but are they as stong as Tri or North Decatur.

Tri’s point differential is the greatest among all teams. Steamroll.

SISN Ranking

  1. Tri
  2. North Decatur
  3. Edinburgh
  4. Milan
  5. South Decatur
  6. Knightstown
  7. Cambridge City Lincoln

Sectional 48

Eastern Greene, North Daviess, Providence, Rock Creek Academy, South Spencer, Springs Valley, Tecumseh, West Washington

“Backwoods Bowl”

Sectional 48 is shaping up to be a really touch Sectional to play in. Tecumseh, West Washington, and Providence are all undefeated and probably some of the toughest 1A teams out there. North Daviess has also climbed back into the picture after their week 1 loss. Springs Valley is slumping, but I see them being a tough team come October as well.

A fan told me we were crazy not to pick Providence to win this sectional, and they may have been right. Only time will tell.    

My old school, Eastern Greene gets their first win of the season behind an explosvie performance from RB James Lewis who carried for 33 times 372 yards and 7 touchdowns.

SISN Ranking

  1. Tecumseh
  2. West Washington
  3. Providence (4)

  7. South Spencer (6)
