So how do these rankings compare to the calpreps computer ranking model? A model that gives heavy weight to strength of schedule...and not much weight to a game's final score. There are a little over 1,000 teams in California playing 11 man football. So each 100 teams represents a 10% decile. In other words if your team's state ranking is 88 you are in the top 10% of teams in the state. 122 and your team is in the top 20%.

Here are calpreps current rankings with the team's ranking among state teams in ( ).

1. Palma (106)
2. Hollister (113)
3. Carmel (286)
4. Salinas (319)
5. MVC (320)
6. Seaside (522)
7. North Salinas (555)
8. Alvarez (565)
9. RLS (622)
10. Soledad (649)

And on the bubble: Gilroy (675), King City (686), Christopher (706) and PG (722)
