This past weekend the biggest postseason tournament in homeschool football history was held at Panama City Beach. That final championship game pitted the #3 CVCHA Disciples (2012 national champions) against the #1 Chargers. The 19-12 final score verified the Maxpreps designations.
Other teams bolstered their national rankings with their own postseason accomplishments.
But other inactive teams let their past opponents do the work for them. Maxpreps includes a dynamic facter called "strength of schedule" which changes as a past opponent continues to thrive in the postseason. Many West Region teams had very strong public and private schools on their schedules. As those teams keep winning in tournament play, their past opponents (like Tulsa NOAH, OKC Legion, & Dallas HSAA) get slight 'bumps' in their rating.
Tomball is the last team to play, this season. They made the finals of the Texas Christian Athletic League. Their last game is this Saturday, in the Cotton Bowl, against Deion Sanders' Prime Prep Charter School.
