High school football rankings Week 12, 2023: Bay Area News Group Top 25

Serra, De La Salle, San Ramon Valley, Pittsburg and El Cerrito are the Bay Area News Group’s top five high school football teams heading into the playoffs.

But will they remain in those spots when the curtain closes on the 2023 season next month?

This week’s rankings are similar to last week’s, with a few exceptions.

Twenty-four of the 25 teams in the updated rankings are still playing. The only one that’s done is Liberty, which did not receive one of the eight spots in the North Coast Section’s Open/Division I playoffs.
