No way Martinsburg WV is in the top 25 in the USA. They might not be in the top 25 in Ohio.

You do realize they get kids from DC and Baltimore. They beat Morgantown 62-0. Steubenville was only up 6-0 on Morgantown at half.

Steuby beat Morgantown 28-6
Martinsburg beat them 51-7
North Allegheny beat them 45-0 in Week 1.

Martinsburg isn't Top 25 in the country. Top 100? Maybe.

Most of the USAT list is better here than their normal work, though.

By "prep" do mean private? If so, the breakdown is almost 50-50 public/private. Besides IMG and a couple charter schools, nearly the entire list are traditional high schools.

In the context of comparing them to the Top 25/100 teams in the entire country, yeah.

So they are not a real High School team then, like a lot on the list. If they play a WV schedule, it is weak. So they may be in the top 25 teams in Ohio, no way in the United States.

No issue with them having 2 in the T25...but Grayson at #3 is weak sauce. You could make a case for both them and Archer in the 15-25 range though.

You missed Marietta at #19 to make the third Georgia team in the top 25. I think that's particularly suspect.

I think that's mostly due to them having a highly recruited senior QB this year, and they made the state quarterfinals last year, despite a 6-4 regular season record. I also think they're getting the hype machine going, because Marietta is playing Good Counsel and St. John's College from the WCAC this season.

What does Trotwood have returning? They went 15-0 and beat Pick Central last year.

I did indeed miss that. Count me in the "overrepresented" camp then.
