High school football rankings Week 5, 2023: Bay Area News Group Top 25

With more than one-third of the teams in last week’s Bay Area News Group rankings off, there are only subtle changes in the new Top 25.

McClymonds dropped from sixth to ninth after losing at San Ramon Valley. Amador Valley moved ahead of Monte Vista after beating the Mustangs in a thriller.

Hillsdale, which knocked off Sacred Heart Prep to remain undefeated, moved into the Top 20.

Nobody dropped out this week.
