The high school football season is over in New York City. Lincoln ended it with a dramatic 20-12 win over Erasmus Hall for the Public Schools Athletic League title. Let's take a look at the last poll of the year:

1. St. Anthony's (10-0): How would a matchup of St. Anthony's vs. Lincoln gone? For one, there would have been a lot of running involved.

2. Lincoln (13-0): One year after losing a heartbreak at Yankee Stadium, Lincoln returned to the title game and brought home the title this year.

3. Erasmus Hall (9-4): A lack of a legitimate passing game came back to doom Erasmus Hall on Tuesday night against Lincoln.

4. Tottenville (10-2): With Brandon Barnes returning, there's no reason to not think that Tottenville won't be among the city's best the next year.

5. Stepinac (9-3): Stepinac will be losing some key seniors from this year's team. Will the Crusaders be able to turn in another great campaign next year?

6. Xaverian (7-3): It would be intriguing to see Xaverian play some of the elite Brooklyn teams in New York City like Lincoln and Fort Hamilton.

7. Fort Hamilton (8-3): Fort Hamilton has to wonder if it would have made it to the title game had Marvin Centeno not been injured.

8. Iona Prep (6-4): With quality players returning across the board, Iona Prep will be in the hunt for the CHSFL title next season.

9. Dewitt Clinton (8-4): For the second straight season, Dewitt Clinton has proved to the best team from the Bronx.

10. Boys & Girls (7-4): To show Brooklyn's strength in the PSAL: Boys & Girls is the 10th best team in the city but the fourth best team in its borough.
