The 2013 football season is sadly over for most of the local teams, so I wanted to take this chance to rank all the local teams this year based on how good I thought they were (based on only the thoughts of just a random guy in the stands who doesn't know a damn thing about football, me!). I included all teams from Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William... Feel free to pull and poke at this list however you like...
#1. Centreville (6A, Clifton) ... State champions? No one has slowed them down even a little outside SoCo.
#2. Briar Woods (5A, Ashburn) ... also playing for the state title, don't talk about how they are a smaller school.
#3. Westfield (6A, Chantilly) ... the playoffs proved that they belong at this rank. Luck or skill, you decide.
#4. Lake Braddock (6A, Burke) ... the coaches choked, pure and simple, so they fall a little in my eyes.
#5. C.D. Hylton (6A, Woodbridge) ... Impressive performance this year, too bad they are in the south now.
#6. Broad Run (5A, Ashburn) ... gained a couple spots in my eyes by showing a coach CAN change a gameplan.
#7. Stone Bridge (5A, Ashburn) ... still wondering just what happened out there this year.
#8. South County (6A, Lorton) ... A beautiful offensive attack, but they still need other elements of the game.
#9. James Robinson (6A, Fairfax) ... a team that turned out to be the real thing. Keep an eye on these guys.
#10. Forest Park (6A, Woodbridge) ... Feeling sorry because they had to go to ROANOKE for 1ST ROUND PLAYOFF game.
#11. Washington-Lee (6A, Arlington) ... They finally got that weight of Yorktown off their back this year.
#12. Stonewall Jackson (6A, Manassas) ... I still don't know a damn thing about this team.
#13. T.C. Williams (6A, Alexandria) ... Nice play, they make the playoffs for the first time in how many decades?
#14. Langley (6A, McLean) ... had a surprisingly better offensive attack than I expected, darn good QB.
#15. Patriot (6A, Nokesville) ... Farm... House... Farm... Forest... SCHOOL?!!... Farm... House...
#16. Fairfax (6A, Fairfax) ... Played above their weight this year, gotta love this feel-good story here.
#17. Yorktown (6A, Arlington) ... Fell down by losing to Washington-Lee for the first time since, well, er...
#18. Loudoun Valley (3A, Purcellville) ... Don't give crap about smaller schools, they were amazing to watch!
#19. Chantilly (6A, Chantilly) ... They did beat SoCo (for what that's worth). Can't wait to see them next year.
#20. Woodgrove (4A, Purcellville) ... Farm... Forest... SCHOOL?!!... Farm... House... see I can do this all day.
#21. Tuscarora (5A, Leesburg) ... when you play 3A schools, you end up not being ready for a 5A playoff.
#22. Battlefield (6A, Haymarket) ... A good quality team like they always seem to field.
#23. Falls Church (5A, Falls Church) ... another fun team on the rise, can't wait to see what they do next year.
#24. Woodbridge (6A, Woodbridge)
#25. Dominion (4A, Sterling)
#26. Hayfield (6A, Alexandria) ... Welcome to the 6A, you gotta play with the big boys now.
#27. Oakton (6A, Vienna) ... They will get back on track next year, you can count on it.
#28. West Potomac (6A, Alexandria) ... Liked their football better when they were Groveton High School.
#29. McLean (6A, McLean) ... It's probably better that they missed the playoffs, it might force some changes.
#30. W.T. Woodson (6A, Fairfax) ... Probably should go and stick to the basketball season.
#31. South Lakes (6A, Reston)
#32. Robert E. Lee (5A, Springfield) ... Honestly, they are worse than this ranking, but they're mine!
#33. Potomac (5A, Dumfries)
#34. Loudoun County (4A, Leesburg)
#35. Freedom (5A, Woodbridge) ... Why are two schools so close to each other named the same damn thing?
#36. Kettle Run (3A, Nokesville) ... Patriot's little step-brother?
#37. Osbourn Park (6A, Manassas)
#38. Potomac Falls (5A, Sterling) ... They appear to be a program on the rise, but they have quite a way to go.
#39. George Mason (2A, Falls Church) ... Yes, they have a football team, and yes, they were in the playoffs.
#40. Mount Vernon (5A, Alexandria) ... Made the playoffs, but then again, so did everybody else.
#41. Herndon (6A, Herndon) ... Looks like their team is holding together for next year, experience helps.
#42. Thomas Edison (5A, Alexandria) ... My 9-year-old cousin's flag football team plays a better defense.
#43. Thomas Jefferson (5A, Alexandria) ... Launched a satellite, still needs to launch a football.
#44. West Springfield (6A, Springfield) ... This is me being objective. They beat my Lee, else they'd be last.
#45. Osbourn (6A, Manassas) ... Will they always be outshone by neighboring Osbourn Park?
#46. J.E.B. Stuart (5A, Falls Church) ... not much football right now, just money laundering.
#47. James Madison (6A, Vienna) ... needs all the help they can get, it is like a circus over there.
#48. Park View (4A, Sterling)
#49. Heritage (4A, Leesburg) ... barely missed the playoffs, but did upset Loudoun County.
#50. Gar-Field (6A, Woodbridge) ... I'm probably dating myself, but I remember when these guys were GOOD.
#51. John Champe (3A, Aldie)
#52. Annandale (6A, Annandale) ... classless team, classless coach, classless school, fire everyone.
#53. Wakefield (5A, Arlington) ... at least Annandale actually won a game.
#54. Freedom (5A, South Riding)
#55. Manassas Park (3A, Manassas Park) ... There are two teams worse than this one? Can I call it a team?
#56. George Marshall (5A, Falls Church) ... If I can actually say one school is worse than this bunch.
#57. Brentsville District (3A, Nokesville) ... they win the distinction of being the worst area thing... Hurray!
