Andy Shay’s Elite 11 Rankings after Week 10

11. West Perry9-110
The dream of a perfect season came crashing down at the hands of defending PIAA Class 1A champion Steel-High. Not a bad loss by any measurable, though.
10. Cedar Cliff9-1NR
Called an audible here and went with the Colts in the final rankings. Only loss was to Bishop McDevitt, and they have improved massively since the start of the season. Crushed Milton Hershey to close out a stellar 2023. This was earned.
9. Exeter Township8-27
Back-to-back losses for the Eagles, except this one to fellow Elite 11 foe Manheim Central wasn’t close. Losing by four touchdowns reveals some cracks after that 8-0 start.
Allowed only one touchdown to fellow unbeaten West Perry on the road in a hostile environment. That’s championship pedigree right there.
7. Wyomissing9-18
Had to scratch and claw past a feisty Lampeter-Strasburg squad that has some chops. This kind of game is a good measuring stick for the Spartans, and the 18-13 final is still a good result.
6. Manheim Central9-16
Was in a battle with fellow Elite 11 resident at halftime, but the Barons put the final 28 points on the board to pull away for an impressive victory.
5. Cocalico9-15
Was pushed to the limit by a Conrad Weiser team that came in with only two wins this season. Final was 24-14, and sometimes winning matters more than the score.
4. Central York10-04
You always celebrate a perfect regular season, and the Panthers completed another stellar campaign by drilling York by 31 points. Impressive.
3. Harrisburg9-13
Why yes, the Cougars are playing their best football heading into the second season. A four-touchdown victory over the CD Rams is just another example. Harrisburg offense is in full go-mode after scoring 47 more.
2. Manheim Township10-02
From start to finish this team has been as consistent as anybody. Wilson pushed all the right buttons and gave the Blue Streaks a full-metal-jacket test during a 49-34 contest. Excellent playoff primer for Township.
1. Bishop McDevitt10-01
Scored at least two touchdowns in each quarter in roughing up Lower Dauphin 61-10. In 10 games the Crusaders have scored 478 points. And that number includes 20 in the opener. A defense of their state title is primed and ready.
