Earlier this week — on Sunday night at 10:17 p.m., to be exact — there was a screen shot posted showing an Indiana high school football poll after last Friday’s games.

It showed Michigan City (3-2 overall record) at No. 3 in the Class 5A state rankings behind Indianapolis Roncalli and Indianapolis Cathedral, which is 1-4, but has lost to powerhouse schools from Kentucky (Louisville St. Xavier), Michigan (Detroit King) and Ohio (Pickerington Central and Cincinnati St. Xavier), all on the road.
