High School Football America 100

Mater Dei Controls Destiny, More State Champs

We head into the final two weeks of the 2021 high school football season with five teams in the hunt for the High School Football America national championship.

We head into the final two weeks of the 2021 high school football season with five teams in the hunt for the High School Football America national championship.

Top-ranked Mater Dei (California) controls its destiny. The Monarchs can wrap-up its third national title in five years by beating No. 75 Serra (San Mateo, California) in the Open Division championship.

If heavily-favored Mater Dei loses to Serra, No. 2 Westlake (Texas) is waiting in the wings. Westlake, which has won two straight Texas state championships, will face No. 5 Katy in the Class 6A Division I state semifinals.

In Class 6A Division I, the largest classification in Texas, No. 3 Southlake Carroll is matched-up against No. 25 Duncanville in one state semifinal. On the other side of the bracket, No. 33 North Shore will square-off with No. 41 Lake Travis.

During this past weekend, 13 teams in the High School Football America 100, powered by NFL Play Football, won state championships. Five of those championship trophies were hoisted after Top 100 head-to-head matchups.

  • No. 85 Gaffney beat No. 14 Dutch Fork 22-19 to win South Carolina's 5A championship. Dutch Fork had won five straight state titles with a 62-game unbeaten streak that dated back to 2016. 

  • Thompson won its third straight Alabama 7A championship with a 38-22 win over No. 75 Central (Phenix City).

  • No. 22 St. Edward beat No. 47 Springfield 23-13 for the Ohio Division 1 state championship. The title is the fifth for the Eagles since 2010.

  • Kentucky's 6A title belongs to No. 88 St. Xavier after a 31-21 win over No. 29 Male High School. It is the Tigers first state title since 2009.

  • No. 98 Cherry Creek won its third straight Colorado 5A state title by beating No. 54 Valor Christian 21-0. It was the second year in a row that the Bruins beat VC 21-0 for the title.
