RIHS Football Poll – Week 9

La Salle remains in the top spot, and they remain undefeated.

Back after a week’s absence – thanks Sandy! – not much has changed in the top six.

Although the order has switched around a bit, La Salle, Hendricken, Cranston East and Portsmouth remain the top four in the state. La Salle remains undefeated, while the other three have traded wins and losses against one another.

Behind the top four in Division I lurk the best two teams – so far – in Division II, Johnston and Cumberland. After the top six is where the ballot gets jumbled, with a mixture of mediocre Division I programs, good Division II programs and great Division III programs.
