For the second week in a row, little changed in the Maryland High School Football Media State Poll as all the Baltimore-area teams stayed within one spot of the previous week's rankings. Only one team lost in Week Five – No. 16 Bishop McNamara, which dropped out of the poll.

Gilman remained No. 2 behind DeMatha, with Quince Orchard at No. 3 and Eastern Christian at No. 4.

McDonogh, with the state’s best record at 7-0, jumped into the top five, flipping spots with Old Mill, which dropped to No. 6 – the only change in the top 10

River Hill remained No. 9 and Meade stayed at No. 10 while Arundel and Dunbar each moved up a spot to No. 16 and No. 17 respectively. St. Paul’s is still No. 19 with the Crusaders’ next opponent, Archbishop Curley, moving up one position to No. 21.
