Want to be in the ESPN RISE rankings?

Ever wonder how the folks who put together the POWERADE FAB 50 ESPN RISE rankings determine which high school football teams are the best in the nation?

There's an interesting article posted on ESPN RISE that explains the process.

Among the ways listed for cracking the national rankings is to beat a ranked team.

For DFW schools, that means taking down sixth-ranked Euless Trinity. That's no easy task, as the Trojans have won three state championships in the last five years.

North Richland Hills Richland will be the first area team to get a crack at Trinity, but it won't be until the third week of games. The Trojans open against Tyler Lee then face Shiloh Christian, an Arkansas private school.

Trinity's Aug. 28 game against Tyler Lee will be televised on ESPNU as part of the ESPN RISE High School Football Kickoff.
