Quick take: You will see more shake-ups in the rankings coming out of District 3 where Central Dauphin and State College still have to play each other. No. 9 Coatesville has been on fire for the past several weeks and should be considered a serious contender in District 1. No. 8 Pine-Richland lost quarterback Phil Jurkovec for the rest of the season due to a thumb injury. Erie McDowell enters our top ten for the first time this year.
