High school sports: Indiana's Carmel leads MaxPreps Cup standings after winter season
Greyhounds are known as the champion of sprinters in the canine world, and that's proving to be the case for the Carmel (Ind.) Greyhounds as well. With three state championships in the winter, Carmel sprinted past the rest of the schools in the nation to take over the top spot in the latest MaxPreps Cup Winter Rankings.

The MaxPreps Cup is an effort to rank the top high school athletic programs in the country. Points are awarded for state championships, state runner-up finishes and national rankings. Points are awarded based on popularity of sport, based on participation numbers, the size of the state, the size of schools in a playoff division and the number of teams participating in that playoff division.

As is usually the case, Carmel won state championships in girls swimming and boys swimming. Indiana does not break down its state swimming championships by class and Carmel has dominated the event for decades. The girls team won its 35th straight state championship while the boys swim team won its seventh in a row.

Carmel added a boys basketball state championship as well and finished ranked in the MaxPreps Top 25 national rankings.

The Greyhounds, who were No. 8 in the fall, edged North Allegheny (Wexford, Pa.) for the No. 1 winter ranking. The Pennsylvania school was in second place following the fall sports season and added state titles in boys basketball, boys swimming and girls swimming. Bolles (Jacksonville, Fla.), the top school in the fall rankings, did not appear in a state championship game in the winter and dropped to No. 6.

Rounding out the top five are Marist (Atlanta), which was No. 6 in the fall, Century (Bismarck, N.D.), which stayed at No. 4, and Bentonville (Ark.), which moved up 40 spots to No. 5.

Texas high school football: Allen hires former Arkansas coach Chad Morris - HIGHSCORE
Texas high school football: Allen hires former Arkansas coach Chad Morris
Allen (Texas), one of the most prominent high school football programs in the nation, found its next head coach, announcing Wednesday that former Arkansas coach Chad Morris will lead the Eagles. The hire comes two weeks after Terry Gambill announced his retirement following a five-year tenure that saw the Eagles go 65-4 with a 2017 6A Division 1 state title.

"I am honored to join Allen ISD and the Allen Eagles football program," Morris said in a statement. "My roots run deep in Texas high school football, and I am excited for the opportunity to get back to coaching young student-athletes and making an impression on their lives."

Morris was Auburn's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach last year and was the head coach at Arkansas from 2018-19. He was 4-18 as Razorbacks coach. He last coached in Texas from 2015-17 as the head coach at SMU. He went 14-22 in three years with the Mustangs. He also was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for Clemson under Dabo Swinney from 2011-14 and spent a year at Tulsa the year prior.

Before his college coaching career started in 2010, Morris was one of the best high school football coaches in the Lone Star State.

He spent two years at Texas power Lake Travis (Austin) as the head coach from 2008-09 and led the Cavaliers to back-to-back 4A Division 1 state titles going 32-0 in his two years. Garrett Gilbert was his quarterback during the 2008 season when he was named the Gatorade Athlete of the Year after throwing for 4,851 yards and 55 touchdowns.

Morris is 169-38 during his 16 years high school level and also had previous stops at Stephenville (Texas), Bay City (Texas), Elysian Fields (Texas) and Eustace (Texas).

This was one of the most sought-after coaching jobs in the nation. The Eagles have won five state titles since 2008, led by a three-peat with Kyler Murray under center from 2012-14. Allen has the largest enrollment in the state and a $60 million stadium in which they've never lost.

The Texas high school football power has won at least 10 games in 15 consecutive seasons and return a lot of talent next fall led by three-star offensive lineman Neto Umeozulu, junior running back Jaylen Jenkins and 2022 Harvard commit Jackson Newville.
Chad Morris was announced Wednesday as Allen's new football coach. Prior to coaching at the University of Arkansas and other collegiate stops, Morris was Lake Travis' head coach for two seasons.

High school baseball rankings: Venice knocks Jesuit from top spot in HIGHSCORE Top 25 - HIGHSCORE
High school baseball rankings: Venice knocks Jesuit from top spot in MaxPreps Top 25
Venice knocked the Jesuit Tigers out of the No. 1 spot in the MaxPreps Top 25 high school baseball rankings, making room for another Florida team to rise to the top. Calvary Christian Academy (Fort Lauderdale) leapfrogged previous No. 2 Hamilton (Chandler, Ariz.) following Jesuit's loss.

Calvary Christian Academy continues to get strong pitching from Andrew Painter, who tossed a 1-hitter with 12 strikeouts. But the Eagles will be put to the test this week with a game against IMG Academy.

Jesuit didn't fall far. The Tigers avenged the loss to Venice on Saturday and dropped to No. 6 behind IMG Academy. Buford (Ga.) and Barbe (Lake Charles, La.) also moved ahead of Hamilton, which has yet to play a game this season. Buford and Barbe both are undefeated with double-digit win totals. Barbe was particularly impressive last week, winning four games by shutout.

Dropped out: Woodstock (Ga.), Vestavia Hills (Ala.), Houston County (Warner Robins, Ga.), John Carroll Catholic (Fort Pierce, Fla.), Heritage Hall (Oklahoma City), Charlotte Christian (N.C.)

Game of the Week: Venice 3, Jesuit 2. The Indians scored two runs in the bottom of the sixth to take a 3-1 lead over the former No. 1 team. Jesuit got a home run from Jake Kulikowski in the top of the seventh, but couldn't get the trying run on base to extend the threat.

Player of the Week: Andrew Painter, Calvary Christian Academy. In 11 innings this year, Painter is 2-0 with 27 strikeouts and three hits in leading the Eagles to a No. 1 ranking in the nation.

Recruit Watch: Braden Montgomery, Madison Central. One of the top outfielders in the nation, Montgomery has helped Madison Central start the season 6-0 by batting .500 (7-for-14) with six runs, nine RBI, two doubles, a triple and a home run.

Game to Watch: No. 1 Calvary Christian Academy takes on IMG Academy. Calvary will likely send Andrew Painter, the nation's No. 1 pitching prospect, against IMG, or the Ascenders might see Irving Carter, Florida's No. 2 pitching prospect.

Streaks: Jesuit saw its 21-game win streak come to an end against Venice. The Tigers' streak had dated back to the 2019 season.

Top 50 high schools with the most combined players in MLB, NBA and NFL - HIGHSCORE
Top 50 high schools with the most combined players in MLB, NBA and NFL
Due to the pandemic, sports fans were treated to meaningful professional football, basketball and baseball games all at the same time. During the first two weeks of October, the regular football season was in full swing, the Lakers and Heat were battling in the NBA finals and four MLB teams were competing for the chance to reach the World Series. Which led us to wonder which schools have produced the most NFL, MLB and NBA athletes.

A quick look at sources like Pro Football Reference, Basketball Reference and the Baseball Cube gave us the answer. Not surprisingly, Long Beach Poly (Calif.) is the overall leader. With 58 former and current NFL players, eight NBA players and 20 MLB players, the Jackrabbits have 86 total athletes in those three professional leagues.

The next two schools on the list — Fork Union Military and Hargrave Military — come with a caveat. While both schools produce four-year high school athletes, they also allow for a fifth-year senior. As a result, some of their numbers are inflated due to the presence of a fifth-year senior who completed his four years of regular schooling at another high school. Fork Union is No. 2 on the list with 74 athletes (including 70 in the NFL) and Hargrave has 49. DeMatha Catholic, a traditional four-year private school, is tied with Hargrave at No. 3 with 49 athletes.

California — particularly Southern California — is home to the majority of the schools on the list. A total of 23 schools from California make the list with 20 of them from Southern California (and San Diego). Florida is next on the list with nine schools.

Schools are listed with the overall number, a breakdown of the number of athletes per sport and some of the more notable professional athletes from the school.

The NFHS Network, the leader in streaming live and on-demand high school sports, is offering two free Pixellot automated-production units for schools.

The Tuesday announcement is in response to the fallout from COVID-19 and the fact fans might not be allowed to attend many live high school sporting events in the 2020-21 season.

"We recognize that the next several years will be challenging for our high schools and state associations," said Mark Koski, CEO of the NFHS Network. "Many are facing budget cuts and reduced resources, and attendance at athletic and other school events may be restricted.

"From the NFHS Network's inception seven years ago, we have been driven by the goal to create a platform that showcases every high school event across every sport and every level of competition. Consistent with this goal, we want the High School Support Program to demonstrate our continued commitment to help our partner schools manage through the inevitable complications created by COVID-19."
