Football: Central Catholic "Team of the Decade" in PA

Written by Brad Everett on .

Central Catholic has been the most dominant team in Pennsylvania over the past 10 seasons.

Well, that's the case according to one national website.

MaxPreps published an article Friday listing the state's 20 most dominant football programs in the 10 years the website has compiled computer rankings. Each team was assigned a point total based on where it finished in the Top 25 after each season. The rankings gave 25 points for teams finishing first, all the way down to one point for teams finishing 25th. Teams were awarded 25 points for winning a state title and 15 for being the runner-up.

Only two teams eclipsed 200 points, and each hailed from the WPIAL. Central Catholic topped the list with 218 points, while Clairton placed second with 207.

Nine WPIAL teams finished in the Top 20. The others were Thomas Jefferson (187 points, fourth), North Allegheny (169 points, eighth), Upper St. Clair (126 points, 12th), Woodland Hills (95 points, 13th), McKeesport (93 points, 15th), Gateway (90 points, 16th) and South Fayette (84 points, 19th).
