The Central Catholic football team will play for a state championship this weekend, but the Vikings are now getting national attention.
Central Catholic moved into the No. 25 spot in CBS Maxpreps Xcellent 25 rankings.
A few other polls haven't been released this week, but last week Central Catholic was No. 17 in the National Prep Football Poll and on the verge of cracking the top 25 in USA Today. The Vikings were No. 26 last week.
Also, in my high school football notebook in today's paper, Central Catholic linebacker Niko Thorpe is the lead subject.
