24-7's Preseason Team Rankings

24-7Football.com's preseason top five in 5A1 to 4A2.

The season doesn't go in to full tilt until next Friday but Brophy and Salpointe face off tonight to kick off the season for Arizona high school football. A handful of other games will be played on Friday and their is the big event up at NAU featuring eight games.

I wanted to start my rankings next week but it just didn't feel right with the season about to open, so I started with a top 5 in 5A1-4A2. I will more than likely do a top 10 during the season but here is just a glimpse on my early take on the season ahead.
