High School football season is rapidly approaching, and the nation's top teams will be eyeing various district, regional and state championships.
While it's a bit daunting to rank the top high school teams in the nation, this list will do exactly that. Some of these dominant squads feature a stud recruit or two, while others are well coached. A combination of talent, returning starters, past performance, coaching and competition quality all served as the main factors in determining this list.
A few programs in California figure to have nationally ranked teams, while a pair of powerful Texas squads are also ranked high. The state of Florida is represented well on this list.
