ESPN RecruitingNation

After games of Sept. 22

For the second straight week, four teams fell out of the ESPN 25 Power Rankings, including top 10 squads in No. 7 Lake Travis (Texas) and No. 8 Archbishop Moeller (Cincinnati).

Joining the Power Rankings for the first time this season are No. 18 Colerain (Cincinnati), No. 19 Narbonne (Harbor City, Calif.), No. 24 Goose Creek (S.C.) and No. 25 American Heritage (Delray Beach, Fla.).

Meanwhile, No. 1 Santa Margarita (Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif.) strengthened its hold on the top spot with a big win over previously unbeaten St. Bonaventure (Ventura, Calif.). But the Eagles were dealt difficult news when star quarterback Johnny Stanton suffered an ACL injury and could be lost for the season.
