Andy Shay’s Elite 11 Rankings After Week 9

11. Hempfield7-211
Nice rebound from that loss to Exeter Township. Blanked Cedar Crest 24-0 and, after taking out Reading to close out the regular season, will enter the playoffs as a team that will have a say in who wins the Class 6A crown.
10. Cumberland Valley6-37
Are the wheels coming off for the Eagles? They gave undefeated State College a fair fight, but that’s back-to-back losses for a CV team that was red-hot early and has battled some key position adversity. Altoona will put up a fight in Week 10.
9. Manheim Township7-210
As a friendly reminder, the Blue Streaks have lost a pair of games by a total of seven points to Cumberland Valley and Hempfield. Early playoff tilt in Week 10 with 7-2 Wilson on the docket.
Remember in Week 1 when L-S was mildly upset by Solanco to open the 2022 campaign? That seems like it was a year ago, and make no mistake, the Pioneers are crushing opponents lately. They know what’s on deck. Week 10 showdown with Wyomissing awaits.
7. Central York8-18
Before the Panthers embark on another second-season campaign in the District 3 playoffs, they have a regular-season finale with powder keg William Penn. Losing the talent they saw graduate and still performing at this level is a sign York County has its first powerhouse program in decades.
6. Wyomissing9-06
In nine games this season the Spartans have registered 400 points. That’s not even a fair fight. See what one-loss Lampeter-Strasburg can do in Week 10. Will be Wyo’s toughest test.
5. Solanco9-05
The march toward a perfect regular season remains very much alive after drilling Fleetwood. Can the Golden Mules handle Garden Spot in Week 10 and complete the magic ride? It wasn’t long ago this program was an L-L also-ran.
4. Harrisburg6-24
Cougars should beat Chambersburg 41-0 and a normally tough game with Central Dauphin to close out the regular season could be a game that might upset the apple cart on Market Street. This Rams team doesn’t appear to have much fight left, though.
3. Manheim Central9-04
Welcome to the playoffs a week early. Undefeated Exeter Township and the undefeated Barons trading paint in Week 10. A clear-cut marquee matchup in the entire state.
2. Exeter Township9-02
See above!
1. Bishop McDevitt7-11
One more “Keystone Division” game for the Crusaders to get out of the way. Not sure I’ve seen a playing field this slanted in my 30 years. Postseason ride 2022 version is just around the corner for McDevitt.
