East Central High School Football Top Team in Southern Indiana - SISN Top 25

Welcome to our Southern Indiana Football Top 25 teams for Week 4. We take a look at all Southern Indiana schools and place them in a College like poll. Yes, most 2A teams probably couldn’t beat most 4A teams, we’re not looking at that. We’re looking at how well teams are doing in their class, their record, their hype, and how well they’re doing outside their class. Its not the best, but the whole reason for this poll is to shine light on some of these great Southern Indiana football teams!

The top 4 have remained unchanged since football kicked off, but Linton Stockton drops out of fifth place, down to 15 after their 1-point loss to Monrovia, 27-26. With the win, Monrovia moves from 15 to 11th. Monrovia is going to surprise a lot of teams this season, and I feel like they’re going unnoticed. They follow up the Linton win with another big game at Triton-Central tonight.

We made a mistake the past couple weeks. We had Hanover Central ranked 6th, then we learned that Hanover Central is nowhere near Hanover, Indiana. We mistook them for Southwestern, but after looking for Southwestern I can’t find anything about them. What happened to that team? We fixed the mistake (thank you to the reader who pointed that out) and moved Evansville North up from 14th to 6th.

Vincennes Lincoln makes its first appearance on our list after their big win over Evansville Mater Dei, 20-28. Things seem shaky for Mater Dei to start the season, as they fall 1-2, the 2A state champs may be looking for answers.

Paoli and Tell City are back on the Top 25 this week. I’m liking the numbers I’m seeing from Tell City, and think they’re going to make a splash. There’s a lot of great teams in Sectional 40 at the 2A level, and in my opinion, its one of the toughest to play in this season. Paoli, Perry Central, Tell City, Forest Park, North Posey, Evansville Mater Dei. In my opinion, its very likely that our 2A Southern State representative will come from this sectional again.

Let us know how we did in the comments section below. Also, please vote for your favorite game upcoming in week 4. We’ll have several games that we think are the big clashes in Week 4, and you’ll get to vote for which one will be the best game to watch. Thank you for reading.
