And the No. 1 high school football team is ... Rancho Santa Margarita (Calif.) Santa Margarita Catholic High.
This is the first time in the five-year history of the RivalsHigh 100 that a team from California has been ranked No. 1 but with 15 impact players returning from last season and one of the most difficult schedules of any team in the Top 25 the chance to hold that spot may be greater than ever before.

Digest them all, then come back on Aug. 27 for the next rankings. After that, we'll update the rankings every Monday during the season.
The team rankings were compiled by high school sports senior analyst Dallas Jackson, the Rivals AMP team, football recruiting analysts and the entire RivalsHigh network of publishers.
