Final 2011 football rankings
By David Auguste
Lake Oswego ended the season undefeated and ranked No. 25 in the POWERADE FAB 50. Led by QB Alex Matthews and RB Steven Long, the Lakers were unstoppable on offense and their defense came up with several clutch performances during the run to the Class 6A crown. Sheldon was No. 1 for most of the fall but fell in the finals to drop to No. 2. Mountain View shocked Sherwood to secure the 5A crown and take No. 3 in our rankings, while 4A champ La Salle and Sherwood rounded out the top five.
Here's how the top three teams fared last week:
Lake Oswego — defeated Sheldon in Class 6A finals, 47-14 (Final regular season ranking: No. 2)
Sheldon — lost to Lake Oswego in Class 6A finals, 47-14 (Final regular season ranking: No. 1)
Mountain View — defeated Sherwood in Class 5A finals, 14-13 (Final regular season ranking: NR)
