Pete’s Top-10: Blue Eagles finish on top

So, this is it. The final top-10 poll of the season is here upon us and it’s fitting that it ends during Thanksgiving week.

I’m sure anyone affiliated or interested in the local football scene has to be happy that we got some type of a season under our belts, despite all the hardships involved.

Nazareth, Central Catholic and Palisades walked away from the final weekend as district champions, while Notre Dame will likely add their name to the group this Wednesday when they play in the District 11 3A final.

Nazareth continues to shine with its second-straight D-11 title, while Freedom gets one more shot to get a game under their belt this week against Liberty.

Central Catholic looks like it will be the team to beat in 4A moving forward and is Palisades cooking something up for the long run in 2A?

Farewell to this year and let’s hope that 2021 can return us to normalcy.

1. Nazareth (8-0)
