1. Bishop Guilfoyle 1-0 Next Game: Westmont
Bishop Guilfoyle handled business in week one with a 61-12 victory over Richland. They have long been talked about this off-season, and they came out and did what they were supposed to do with Chadbourn and McCloskey leading the way. Westmont got a win in week one, but I'm not expecting them to bother BG much.
2. Portage 1-0 Next Game: @ North Star
Portage slides up to number two in our rankings after they handled Blacklick Valley in week one. The Mustangs used big performances from Caleb Kephart and Luke Dividock to secure the win rather easily. North Star is 1-0, but expected to be down from previous seasons. Portage should keep rolling.
3. Bellwood-Antis 0-1 Next Game: Moshannon Valley
Bellwood nearly pulled off the upset over Tyrone in another exciting Backyard Brawl. The Blue Devils were not given a chance by many, but they had a two touchdown lead that slipped away. Moshannon Valley is not an easy game this week, it's one of the better games on the docket.
4. Blairsville 1-0 Next Game: Marion Center
Blairsville took care of Westinghouse on the road in week one. The Bobcats are billed as the favorites in the Heritage, but it's pretty clear the league is tough this year. Blairsville should be able to beat Marion Center, and after that the schedule gets brutal.
5. Homer Center 1-0 Next Game: @ Saltsburg
After a ton of questions swirling in the off-season about them taking a step back, the defending champs put a hurtin' on Penns Manor in the opener seemingly having picked up right where they left off in 2013. They have Ean Lee and Aaron Berezansky still, they'll be just fine.
1. Tyrone 1-0 Next Game: @ Central
I'll keep Tyrone here for now, but Forest Hills is ready to take this top spot at any time. The Golden Eagles didn't play bad last week, it's just some thought they would win by more. Given the history of that game, I wouldn't look too far into it, Tyrone is fine. Central on the road this week? This will be a good barometer of where Tyrone really is as a team.
2. Forest Hills 1-0 Next Game: Somerset
I think without any doubt about it, this Somerset-Forest Hills game is the marquee game of the week. Forest Hills looked really good on Saturday against McCort, and they have a quick strike offense that can score in a hurry. The game with Somerset should be a very good one to go see.
3. Bedford 1-0 Next Game: @ Central Cambria
Bedford beat Penn Cambria in week one, and it ended up being a little closer than most expected. I think Bedford is fine, and they should have the offense clicking as the season goes on. Going up and trying to win in Ebensburg is not an easy task, Bedford has a tough one cut out for themselves.
4. Mt. Union 1-0 Next Game: @ Juniata Valley
Mt. Union stays at four for now, but could be moving up very soon. The Trojans have a very high-powered offense that will score a lot of points, and they have a chance to post some good numbers this week at Juniata Valley.
5. Chestnut Ridge 1-0 Next Game: @ Fort Hill (MD)
Chestnut Ridge slides into the rankings after a solid win over Everett the other night, as Central Cambria drops out. We will find out about Ridge real quick, though. The Lions play the two Cumberland teams this week, and they have given local teams problems through the years. If they can head out of state and come back with a win, the ranking will be validated.
D 5-6-8-9 AAA
1. Somerset 1-0 Next Game: @Forest Hills
Somerset looked sharp in week one with a 41-0 blowout over Bishop Carroll. The Golden Eagles are loaded, and they have a chance for a big year. They have a huge test with Forest Hills this week.
2. Johnstown 1-0 Next Game: @ Bishop Carroll
The Trojans finally looked like they are back on track after a very good win over a solid Central Cambria team. Johnstown should be able to take it to Bishop Carroll this week.
3. Clearfield 0-1 Next Game: @ Penns Valley
The Bison drop with a loss in week one, but it wasn't a bad loss as they did travel the whole way to West Virginia and hung for most of the game. They should get into the win column playing 0-1 Penns Valley this week.
