High school football rankings Week 8, 2022: Bay Area News Group Top 25

The toughest question this week was what to do with De La Salle.

The Spartans lost Friday for the third time this season, all to highly-ranked Northern California teams that have one loss between them.

Serra, Folsom and now St. Mary’s-Stockton have beaten De La Salle.

Serra is 6-0.

Folsom is 6-1, with its only loss by five points to Serra.

St. Mary’s-Stockton is 7-0.

De La Salle entered last week’s game at St. Mary’s ranked second by the Bay Area News Group.

The Spartans dropped one spot this week, to No. 3, after losing to the Stockton school 45-35. They trail Serra and a team that has not beaten De La Salle in 31 years, Pittsburg.

The Pirates moved up one spot despite needing a late field goal Friday to edge unranked Liberty.

Wilcox held steady at No. 4 and McClymonds and San Ramon Valley traded places again, with Mack back at No. 5 and SRV at No. 6 after they played a thriller Friday.

McClymonds beat SRV 45-42.

The only newcomer to this week’s rankings was Miramonte, which improved to 5-1 after beating previously unbeaten Northgate.
