CHSAANow.com prep football rankings, Week 3: Cherry Creek leapfrogs Valor Christian in 5A – The Denver Post

For those who missed it, Valor Christian went on the road and crushed a perennial California power on Friday, beating Oaks Christian 30-7 out on the West Coast.

The Eagles reward? Getting leapfrogged by Cherry Creek atop the latest CHSAANow.com prep football rankings released Tuesday.

How could that happen? Well, the Bruins are winners of 25 in a row and haven’t allowed an opposing team to score a point in 14 quarters (including four quarters against Valor in last year’s 5A title game). So, it’s not as if they are totally undeserving.

The best part is, we’ll likely get to see the two of them settle it out on the field this fall. Playoffs are great, aren’t they?

Here’s this week’s rankings:
