Fort Hunt did what was expected this past weekend in Mid-Atlantic Premier League action, but Doylestown was a bit of a surprise.
West End beat Doylestown 28-26 on Saturday, while Fort Hunt beat West Shore United 35-7. On Sunday, Fort Hunt hammered Doylestown 88-7, while West End beat West Shore United 28-16.
A few thoughts and comments on Boys HS Rankings.
The new Boys HS Rankings are on FloRugby here - you've got to sign up to see them, but it's worth it, as you'll also get access to a whole bunch of other stuff.
Who should we be looking at with the High School Rankings?
Well, watch out. GRR is partnering with FloRugby on our High School Rankings once again, and they will be available on Wednesday.

The headline is the question, and generally I'd have to say, yes, I do.

The latest HS Club rankings are here, and the #1 team is still Fort Hunt.
However, there's plenty of movement in the Top 10. Royal Irish has been winning games, but very, very close games, and with other teams doing pretty well, it's more a case of others moving up than Royal Irish moving down. Doylestown and West Valley get a boost, and Granite Bay perhaps a belated one.

There's movement in the top 10 and further down, as well, in the Boys HS Club Rankings.
