Teams are ranked based on how good they are RIGHT NOW. If at any given time two teams squared off at a neutral site, the team who is ranked higher on my power rankings would be the favorite. The rankings are updated constantly, especially when the during the season. I do power rankings for football and basketball. In order for the rankings to be accurate I go to as many games/tournaments as possible.
Players are ranked based on how they project at the college level. The players are ranked according to my opinion. I take into consideration a player's size, quickness, athleticism, and overall skill set when ranking players. The rankings are updated frequently, especially during the season. I do player rankings for boys & girls basketball, as well as football. Once again, in order for these rankings to be accurate I go to as many games/tournaments as possible. I base the rankings on what I see in games I go to in person, as well as what I see on film.
If there are any players not ranked who you feel should be feel free to let me know!
My credibility when ranking teams and players comes from the fact that I have numerous articles published in the New England Recruiting Report, I cover NH High School Sports for 3 different radio stations, 2 different websites, I covered UNH football, basketball and hockey for 4 years and have also broadcasted NECBL baseball.
