Our mission is to take all the guesswork out of the ranking process. We recognize that the sheer number of teams across the nation make it very difficult to notice all of the deserving teams out there. The process we propose is as follows:
Listed below are the most important factors in the Team ranking process:
The way a team performs on a weekly basis, is ultimately what will determine whether or not a team gets, and stays ranked from week to week. Dominant performances over great competition, especially other ranked teams will cay the most weight in the ranking process.
Teams that play top competition such as other ranked teams, out of state or league teams, and teams that play in travel leagues will have the greatest chances of being ranked in the NSR TOP 15 Power Rankings. A team has more to gain with competitive loss against a good team, than a blow-out win over a bad team in the weekly voting process.
Teams that play in power house leagues that face stiff competition on a weekly basis have the best chance of being ranked. Games played by teams in powerhouse leagues will carry more weight in the weekly voting process.
Over all team talent will play a critical roll in determining the preseason rankings. Teams that where ranked the following season and have the majority of their squad in tact, have a great shot at being ranked early. You still have to win.
In youth football, coaching is often the difference between winning and losing. Teams that boaster the most experienced, coaching staffs, who have a proven championship pedigree have a great shot at being ranked early. You still have to win on the field
Teams that add travel games to their schedule will have a greater chance of being ranked. Travel games carry more weight in the weekly voting process.
Teams that participate in preseason Tournaments, even ones that are not NSR, Tournament of Champions, or National Title Games events. The results of these events will be used a baseline team evaluation tool.
