After four weeks of playoffs, there was no change at the top of the Maryland high school football state rankings. Other than a shuffling of positions, there were hardly any new teams in the final Top 25.

Good Counsel ended the season where it started, at No. 1, followed by MIAA champ Gilman, Class 4A champ Old Mill, MIAA runner-up Calvert Hall and 4A runner-up Quince Orchard.

River Hill debuted at No. 6 following its convincing victory in the Class 2A state final. Thomas Jonson entered the rankings at No. 19 with a 3A state runner-up finish, and Churchill's near-win over Quince Orchard earned it the No. 25 spot.
