Most teams from around the state have at least two games under their belt so we here at PrepColorado thought it was time to unveil the first edtion of the power rankings. The rankings attempt to rank the teams of Colorado high school football regardless of classification.

Each week courtesy of Dr. Erik Packard of Mesa State University, PrepColorado will bring you the prep football power rankings.  The Packard Power Ratings take into account the previous week’s rank, home field, game performance and previous opponents’ game performance.  So here is the top twenty for this week.
