1. Rogers, Record 3-0, Last Week Rank: #1

Sam Ranallo became the all-time leading scorer for Rogers this week as he has them rolling at a 3-0 start. The game against #4 Andover on Thursday will tell us a lot about this Rogers team. Sophomore’s Parker Deschene, Mason Jenson, and Keaton Weis have all looked great up front for Rogers, giving them the scoring depth they need for the long haul.
