It is time for the second annual NUC National High School Rankings. Starting the last Monday of August the rankings will be updated once a week until the end of all state playoffs in December. We will also name a player or players of the week for the individual who went above and beyond the call of duty on the football field. The rankings are strictly for entertainment purposes and we hope every NUC fan will follow along as their favorite high school team competes on the gridiron this season. The National Underclassmen would also like to wish every coach and player a successful 2012 football season.
