Elite 11: A ranking of our top 11 teams after Week 3

Each week, we’re scouring the Mid-Penn, Lancaster-Lebanon, York, and Berks conferences to determine the top 11 teams in the area regardless of classification. Take a look at which teams made the cut after Week 3. Disagree, let us know on Twitter (@4thdownmag) and Facebook.

11. Wyomissing3-08
Beat up on Boyertown, and it wasn’t a real surprise, either. Spartans are going to win plenty of games.
10. Cedar Cliff2-17
That was a tough loss to CD East, and it was clear the Panthers speed on defense was something the Colts were not used to seeing. Strong effort from the D will serve them well going forward.
9. Steel-High3-010
All the defending state champions do is throw plenty of long touchdown bombs and score 50 points a game. They haven’t played a “competitive” quarter yet this season.
8.CD East2-1NR
As long as the defense stays healthy and they continue to evolve as a unit over individual talent, they are going to give plenty of teams problems.
7. Central Dauphin1-16
Rams are battling an outbreak of COVID-19 that cost them a game with Manheim Township and could possibly put their Week 4 contest in doubt.
6. Manheim Central3-0NR
Probably should have been in the Elite 11 last week. That was a miscue on my part. Two quality wins to start the season. Beating the 'Hanna Tribe by 60 was expected.
5. Exeter Township2-1NR
Only loss was to No. 2 Central York by a touchdown, and they just took the Wilson Bulldogs out behind the woodshed and won in convincing fashion. Another squad a week late to the rankings.
4. Bishop McDevitt1-14
Another squad with COVID-19 issues, and it cost them a legitimate test with Harrisburg. With so few challenges inside the Keystone Division, they needed that game. Crusaders are still going to roll up plenty of W’s if they get back on the turf sooner than later.
3. Harrisburg3-03
Love the fact Harrisburg and Manheim Township played on less than 36 hours notice after each lost games to opponents dealing with COVID-19. And it was a dandy affair with the Blue Streaks. Cougars found a way, and that matters.
2. Central York3-02
Received a complete test from Hempfield, who hit for plenty of big plays. CY forced three turnovers to counter and has star QB Beau Pribula, the Penn State recruit who has a knack for finding ways to win. Black Knights are the 1-2 team you don’t want to face.
1. Governor Mifflin3-01
The Mustangs have now beaten William Penn (York), Wilson and Cocalico — not exactly programs short of talent or pedigree — by a combined score of 153-20. That’s staggering.
