Elite 11: A ranking of the top 11 teams after Week 10

11. Cedar Cliff8-210
Took care of business to close out an 8-win regular season thanks largely in part to star RB Jontate Morris, who had three touchdowns on offense and pick-six on defense.
10. Shippensburg10-09
Complete second perfect regular season in three years, now has to make some noise in the playoffs.
9. Carlisle7-3NR
This a reward for a second half performance under pressure and closing it out by pulling off an upset of CD East. Thundering Herd won 4 of last 5 games including final three in a row knowing one more loss and they would NOT be playoff eligible.
All the Spartans did to close out the regular season was crack a seven-win Conrad Weiser squad by 38. Gasp … the Wyo defense allowed a single touchdown. Spartans feel like a heavy favorite in Class 3A.
7. Exeter Township6-36
Didn’t play in Week 10, enters the postseason winning two straight. This is a very dangerous No. 7 seed in Class 5A. The quality of their schedule will show up big-time.
6. CD East7-35
Had a 14-0 on Carlisle and could not hold a two-score lead. Bad loss to have heading into the second season when the playoffs are not part of your DNA.
5. Manheim Central9-17
Quality win over Cocalico to close out a solid nine-win regular season. Offense is hitting on all cylinders. Sticky playoff opener against fellow Elite 11 squad Exeter Township.
4. Bishop McDevitt8-14
After seven straight scoring 55 or more, the Crusaders failed to crack 50 against Hershey. Of course McD still won 49-0. They are a heavy favorite in Class 4A. I want to see the team in this PIAA classification that slows down this offense.
3. Harrisburg9-13
Congratulations to the Cougars for winning the Mid-Penn Conference Commonwealth Division title outright by drilling Chambersburg. What this team has done with a roster of less than 40 plays is way more impressive than a 9-1 record.
2. Central York10-02
In horrible weather conditions, hung 60 on a William Penn team that came into this game with only one loss. Yeah, the gap is that big. Panthers are playoff ready.
1. Governor Mifflin8-01
Completed an undefeated regular season with a complete win over a solid Berks Catholic squad. Nobody is going to touch this team in District 3 5A field. They are built for big-time success in the playoffs.
