Each week during the regular season, the World will update its ranking of the top 10 area high school football players. Rankings are based on performance this season, potential and previous years' accomplishments. All players listed are seniors although underclassmen are eligible. A player who has not participated in at least half his team's games this season is ineligible for the rankings.
