Prep football: Canes rise in ESPN, Rivals rankings

In the wake of Friday's 48-6 win over rival and previously undefeated Southeast, Manatee has jumped some spots in ESPNRISE's Powerade Fab 50 and the RivalsHigh 100.
The Canes moved from No. 37 to No. 35 on ESPN's list and hopped 11 spots to No. 78 on the Rivals rankings.
It helps that both of Manatee's losses have come to Don Bosco Prep (N.J.) and Our Lady of Good Counsel (Md.). Bosco is ranked No. 1 by ESPN and No. 5 by Rivals, while Good Counsel is No. 8 on ESPN's poll and ranked 14th by Rivals.
Manatee lost to both by a combined 13 points.
The 2-2 Hurricanes open Class 7A-District 10 play Friday when they host Braden River.
