Glenelg debuts in state media football poll

Glenelg debuts at No. 24 in the Maryland High School Football Media State Poll this week after a 49-8 victory over Oakland Mills. The Gladiators have won five straight games since falling to No. 8 River Hill, 7-3, in the season opener.

Other than Glenelg’s appearance, only two Baltimore-area teams changed position. River Hill, one of 13 undefeated teams in the Top 25, move up a spot from No. 9 after rolling over Wilde Lake, 33-0. Archbishop Curley fell from No. 21 to No. 25 after Monday’s 28-21 loss to No. 19 St. Paul’s.

Gilman is still No. 2 behind top-ranked DeMatha, which earned all 12 first-place votes. Also remaining in place: No. 5 McDonogh, No. 6 Old Mill, No. 15 Meade, No. 16 Arundel, No. 17 Dunbar, and No. 19 St. Paul’s.

Boys’ Latin, Archbishop Spalding and Broadneck received votes but did not crack the Top 25.
