Back-to-back wins by less than 10 points, including a 30-22 victory over an unranked Kapolei team in the state of Hawaii on Friday, has caused Saint Louis to plummet in the USA Today Super 25 released today.

The Crusaders, winners of 20 consecutive games, dropped all the way down to No. 17 in the poll. Saint Louis dropped just one spot in the MaxPreps Xcellent 25 to No. 11.

Six undefeated teams jumped ahead of Saint Louis, including Pickering Central (Ohio), which moved up a spot with a 17-14 win over unranked Hilliard Davidson (Ohio).

The Crusaders were No. 11 in last week’s poll and played Friday’s game without starting quarterback Jayden de Laura.

It was an interesting week in the poll with Bingham (Utah) dropping five spots to No. 22 despite a 45-7 win over Westlake (Calif.). Good Counsel (Md.) fell five spots to No. 24 despite winning 55-0.

The reigning national champion, Mater Dei (Calif.), took over the top spot ahead of St. John Bosco (Calif.) after its 28-24 win over IMG Academy (Fla.), which dropped to No. 3.

Up next for Saint Louis is a trip out to Ewa Beach to play Campbell on Friday night. It’s the first meeting ever between the two schools.

    Awrite look at mililani how many guys live in mililani a lot of those guys live in KPT kahuku over the years guys come in from Utah and other places with the rule with the OIA you can transfer to any school and play look at the dumb rule the ILH had from 1970 that’s the principles made that you got to sit out a year so if you are a good coach in a OIA team you have the edge by the way look what coach cal coach ron did when they were at kalani they made the playoffs at kalani when they were loosing every game so stop saying he’s not a good coach so he was recruiting when he was at kalani give me a break

    Hammer, like your boy toppdogg said…”ILH got bread, Kahuku got bread fruit”
    4.8 million dollar athletic facility just one item on the list of “Reasons to go to St. Louis”

    H$itty field and lockers, just one of the reasons “why NOT to play a game at Kahuku” let alone transfer there.

    Kahuku vs Hawaii coming November 19th

    Awrite. You forgot Herbig,Kauai,Wilson from Maui, and the biggest sin, poached from another catholic chool, Delaura. If you recruited for Lee, and they sit you one year, it’s OK because you can play 1 more year for him..
