High school football rankings Week 13, 2023: Bay Area News Group Top 25

The high school football season is starting to wind down.

Ten of the 25 teams in this week’s Bay Area News Group rankings have put away their gear until next year. More will do the same after this week’s games.

The big movers as the second weekend of the playoffs approaches are Las Lomas, Menlo School and Christopher.

All three 10-1 teams jumped at least four spots after opening-round playoff wins last week.

Wilcox, coming off a stunning rout of St. Francis, is back in the Top 10. The Chargers moved up three spots to No. 9 ahead of their Central Coast Section Open Division championship game on Friday at San Jose City College against Serra.
