Boys HS Single-School Top 25 Presented by Selective Service April 16 2013
Rankings - Boys High School

The latest edition of the RUGBYMag.com High School Top 25 Presented by Selective Service is actually a Top 30. With a few teams knocking on the door, and a couple of other ranked teams being knocked off, we have added five teams.

The big move is at the top, where Gonzaga, on the strength of their 26-7 defeat of Xavier on the weekend, move into the #1 spot. Gonzaga had also beaten Dixon on tour, and that matters, also.

Herriman, previously ranked #4, was upset by Snow Canyon, who move up past their Utah rivals. It's possible both teams will inch further upward. Watch out for Unionville, who continue to log excellent results.

Penn inches up in part because of the Herriman loss, but also because losing 8-7 to Cathedral, as of this writing still the #1 HS Club, is not a bad thing.

Lake Travis moves in at #18 thanks to a defeat of St. Thomas. Likewise Lincoln, which beat ranked Reynolds in Oregon, moves into the rankings.

Virtually all men living in the U.S. must register with Selective Service within 30 days of their 18th birthday. Men who fail to register become ineligible for important opportunities such as student loans, job training programs, citizenship for male immigrants, and driver’s license renewal in most states. In addition, registration is required for employment with the federal government, numerous state and local agencies, and a growing number of private employers. Men who fail to register by age 26 can be PERMANENTLY barred from these opportunities. Learn more, check your status, or register today at www.sss.gov.
