2014 Prep Football Rankings: Week Four


Games of the Week

#3 Helix Highlanders (2-0) at #5 Cathedral Catholic Dons (2-1)
 
Coming off an 8-7 edging over neighborhood rival Torrey Pines, Cathedral will play host to Helix, who is fresh off a bye week. This will be the Highlanders' first game of the year against a San Diego opponent after knocking off two intersectional teams to start the season.
 
Otay Ranch Mustangs (3-0) at #4 St. Augustine Saints (1-2)
 
St. Augustine running back Elijah Preston rushed for 295 yards and four touchdowns during a hard fought 42-35 loss to Loyola (Los Angeles, CA) last week. After opening the season with three road trips, the Saints kickoff their home schedule against an Otay Ranch team looking to legitimize an undefeated start.

QUALCOMM STADIUM (09/12/2014) The "Legion of Boom" had no answers for tight end Antonio Gates, who caught seven passes for 96 yards and three touchdowns (tied career-high) to help the San Diego Chargers (1-1) come away with a 31-20 win over the Seattle Seahawks (1-1).

The Chargers are now 6-3 against defending Super Bowl champions since 2000.
