High school football: Historic win moves Norco to No. 10 in MaxPreps Top 25 California rankings
In recent memory, some things just don't happen in Southern Section football.

1. Mater Dei (Santa Ana) and St. John Bosco (Bellflower) don't get threatened — unless they play each other.

2. Centennial (Corona) doesn't lose — unless it's to Mater Dei or Bosco.

3. Teams don't enter the MaxPreps Top 25 rankings in the Top 10.

All those "never-happens" happened last week.  

CALIFORNIA SPRING COMPUTER RANKINGS: Compare to human rankings below

• For the second straight game, No. 4 Servite (Anaheim) gave one of the two national juggernauts a heck of a game, losing 24-17 to No. 1 Mater Dei. The Monarchs needed a pick-six from junior cornerback Cameron Sidney and a strip-sack on the game's final play to eek out the win. The previous week, Servite (2-2) played toe-to-toe with No. 2 Bosco, losing 38-28.

• Previous No. 3 Centennial was stunned by unranked Norco 38-36, ending the Huskies' 57-game Big VIII league win streak. Junior quarterback Kyle Crum accounted for 265 yards and three touchdowns leading the Cougars to their first win over perennial national power Centennial since 2009.

• With the victory, Norco (3-0), which outscored its first two opponents by a cumulative score of 116-12, jumped from unranked to No. 10, just ahead of the Huskies and behind No. 9 Cathedral Catholic (San Diego).

Speaking of, Cathedral Catholic (3-0) hosts No. 22 Lincoln (San Diego) on Friday in the state Game of the Week that will decide the supremacy of the San Diego Section. Cathedral Catholic is coming off a bye while Lincoln won its third straight blowout, 52-0 over Madison (San Diego), giving the Hornets a 152-0 season edge over all opponents.

High school baseball rankings: Barbe climbs to No. 2 in OFFICIAL Top 25 after starting season 20-0 - OFFICIAL
High school baseball rankings: Barbe climbs to No. 2 in MaxPreps Top 25 after starting season 20-0
Barbe (Lake Charles, La.) last won a MaxPreps National Championship in 2014 when it finished 39-2. The Buccaneers are making another run at a possible national crown with 20 straight wins to start the 2021 season after an 8-2 win Tuesday over crosstown rival Sam Houston. That streak is enough to put Barbe at No. 2 in the MaxPreps Top 25 high school baseball rankings.

Barbe sits behind No. 1 Buford, which continues to clobber opponents with its pitching and hitting. Dylan Lesko proved that point when he struck out 10 and hit a home run against Marist. Lesko is the No. 2 player in the Class of 2022 by Perfect Game.

Calvary Christian Academy avenged its loss to IMG Academy with an 8-2 win. However, the Eagles fell to Pembroke Pines Charter to drop two spots to No. 7.

Meanwhile, Madison Central (Miss.) continues its rise up the rankings, jumping five to No. 4 after four lopsided wins by a combined score of 49-7.

Dropped out:
Grayson (Loganville, Ga.)

Game of the Week: Calvary Christian Academy 8, IMG Academy 2. The Eagles avenged their earlier loss to the Ascenders with an impressive effort by pitchers Irving Carter and Andrew Painter. Carter struck out eight in five innings while Painter fanned two.

Player of the Week: Malachi Lott, Gregory-Portland. In a win over Flour Bluff, Lott hit a home run and also threw a no-hitter with 11 strikeouts.

Recruit Watch: Brock Selvidge, Hamilton. In the season opener for the Huskies, Selvidge showed why he's one of the top two-way players in the nation, hitting two home runs and striking out six in three innings pitched.

Game to Watch: Barbe vs. Sam Houston. The state of Louisiana's two best teams reside right in Lake Charles. The two teams played on Tuesday and play again Thursday.

Top 100 single season passing yardage totals in high school football history - OFFICIAL
Top 100 single season passing yardage totals in high school football history
Video: Patrick Mahomes high school highlights
Super Bowl-winning signal caller in action at Whitehouse High School.

According to best-selling author Malcolm Gladwell, the "tipping point" is "that magic moment when an idea, trend or social behavior crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire."

For high school quarterbacks, 1998 was the tipping point.

Prior to 1998, the record for single season passing yardage in high school was 4,656 yards by Philip Deas of Evangel Christian (Shreveport, La.), set just two years earlier in 1996. But in 1998, five quarterbacks broke the record, led by J.R. House of Nitro (W.Va.) with 5,526 yards, Josh Floyd of Shiloh Christian (Springdale, Ark.) with 5,221 yards, Kyle Boller of Hart (Newhall, Calif.) with 4,838, Brock Berlin of Evangel Christian with 4,834, and Kelan Luker of Stephenville (Texas) with 4,697.

Since 1998, single season passing yardage totals have "spread like wildfire" to the point that Deas' total now ranks No. 92 overall. Compare that to the single season rushing yardage record which hasn't been broken in 70 years.

Texas does not have a quarterback in the Top 10 for single season passing yardage totals, but it dominates the Top 100 with 25 total entries. California is next with 15 and Arkansas has 12.

Three coaches have accounted for 24 members of the Top 100. Kevin Kelley of Pulaski Academy (Little Rock, Ark.) has coached 12 of those quarterbacks while Kris Richardson of Folsom (Calif.) has coached four. Mike Mauk, who coached at Kenton (Ohio) and Glendale (Springfield, Mo.) has eight, including the top three and six of the top 13.

Four quarterbacks make the list three times. They include Jake Browning of Folsom, Alex Huston of Glendale (Springfield, Mo.), Layne Hatcher of Pulaski Academy and Grant Gunnell of St. Pius X (Houston, Texas).

Among the most successful of the Top 100 include Heisman Trophy winner and 2019 No. 1 overall draft pick Kyler Murray and Super Bowl champion and NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes.

High school sports: Southern California regionals announced; No NorCal regionals, state track and field meet - OFFICIAL
High school sports: Southern California regionals announced; No NorCal regionals, state track and field meet
The California Interscholastic Federation announced Wednesday its plan to hold one-week Southern California regional playoffs in seven sports, including basketball, baseball and softball, starting June 5 and ending June 26. The other sports include soccer, tennis, boys volleyball and golf.

Because only two of six Northern California sections — Central Coast and Oakland — are even holding playoffs, there will be no Northern California regionals. That also means for a second straight year there will be no state track and field or state swimming and diving championships.

The 2021 state track and field meet, scheduled for Buchanan High school in Clovis, would have been the 102nd in history. 

The CIF, which only takes over playoffs at the regional and state level, had no choice. The organization's hands were tied. Section champions feed into the regional playoffs and with no champs to advance, regionals were impossible. 

"Ultimately with only CCS and Oakland offering playoffs, regional playoffs in the North weren't feasible," CIF Executive Director Ron Nocetti said. "We wanted to wait as long as possible to make sure there were no update or changes (with the sections)."

Though disappointed that his athletes can't move on, CCS commissioner Dave Grissom said he's heard no complaints.

"This pandemic has been absolutely life changing and life altering for so many families," he said. "In the big scheme of things, for there not to be Northern California championships is OK. It's completely OK. It's just one of those things. It was impossible to pull off. I haven't heard one coach, athletic director or school be upset about it."

San Diego Section powers Mater Dei Catholic and Cathedral Catholic figure to reach the Southern California championships, which conclude June 26. Mater Dei Catholic is ranked 19th nationally by MaxPreps.
All four Southern California sections — the Southern, San Diego, Los Angeles and Central — will finish up their playoffs in late May or early June and then enter a one-week regional playoff.

The section playoffs must be completed by the following dates in these respective sports: boys and girls soccer (May 29), boys and girls team tennis (May 29), boys volleyball (June 5), boys and girls golf (June 12), boys and girls basketball (June 12), baseball (June 19) and softball (June 19).

The last date for regional championships for each sport: boys and girls soccer (June 5), boys and girls team tennis (June 5), boys volleyball (June 12), boys and girls golf (June 15), boys and girls basketball (June 19), baseball (June 26) and softball (June 26).

With just one week to complete tournaments, each bracket will be no more than eight teams. That will create many more brackets than normally, especially in basketball.

Teams and student athletes will likely be faced with many conflicts, concerning both graduation and club teams. Nocetti is hoping for flexibility in all cases.

"We understand that section championships are top priority," Nocetti said. "But we hope those teams communicate as soon as possible their plans on participation at regionals."

The Southern California baseball and softball regionals should be very interest. Currently, three SoCal teams are in the MaxPreps Top 25 national baseball rankings and four SoCal softball squads are among the nation's 25 best.
