High school football hotbed

If you follow high school football at all, you have heard about the great programs throughout country. Most of them come from Texas, California and Florida. Pennsylvania has been very well represented over time.

This year, there is something special going on in the Delaware Valley.

In USA Today's Super 25 rankings, a national look at the top teams in the nation, there are three teams from the region. No other area can make that claim.

Neshaminy (Langhorne), the state runner-up last season, comes in at No. 9.

Perennial power St. Joseph's Prep (Philadelphia) starts at No. 20.

North Penn (Lansdale) begins the season at No. 25.

How long will it last?

It is conceivable that there will be only one team from the region in the rankings after the first week. Neshaminy and St. Joe's Prep meet on Sept. 2 in the first game for both teams. And because North Penn is No. 25, a loss or unimpressive win against Glen Mills could knock them out.

In tomorrow's Inquirer and on Philly.com you will be able to read more about the nation's top region for high school football.
