High school football power rankings: Corner Canyon, Skyridge, American Fork still on top after Week 6

South Summit and Stansbury make their season debuts in the Top 25

(Leah Hogsten | The Salt Lake Tribune) Lone Peak High School practices, Sept. 15, 2021.

The high school football season in Utah has surpassed the halfway point. And while there wasn’t any movement within the top four teams in the state, fewer than 10 teams can now say they haven’t yet lost a game.

Among those undefeated teams is South Summit, which had a losing record last season. It makes its debut in the power rankings this week, along with Stansbury.

But outside of those teams that haven’t lost yet, there is a logjam among most of the top 25, and it doesn’t figure to get any easier to hold a spot.

Here are The Salt Lake Tribune’s prep football Top 25 power rankings for Week 6.
