After games of Oct. 20

No. 25 Coppell (Texas), which improved to 7-0, makes its ESPN 25 Power Rankings debut amid an incredibly trying week. According to The Dallas Morning News, senior starting receiver Jacob Logan drowned last week and his body was found Thursday, a day before Coppell defeated Flower Mound (Texas) 27-18. Coppell players wore decals of Logan's No. 21 on their helmets during the game.

Coppell took the spot of previous No. 23 Mater Dei (Santa Ana, Calif.), which fell to St. John Bosco (Bellflower, Calif.) and dropped out just a week after moving in.

Meanwhile, No. 1 Manatee (Bradenton, Fla.) strengthened its hold on the top spot in the ESPN 25 Power Rankings with an impressive 56-27 win over Venice (Fla.). Manatee quarterback and Mississippi State commit Cord Sandberg accounted for five touchdowns in the win.
