American Heritage ranked in MaxPreps small schools poll 

By Jeff Greer

American Heritage lost a ton of talent from its 2012 team, but that doesn’t mean the Stallions are out of gas.

MaxPreps released its 2013 preseason small schools football rankings on Monday. The poll includes Heritage at No. 24. Trinity Christian and Clearwater Central Catholic are the only other Florida teams that made the top 25.

Here’s what MaxPreps says about the Stallions:

The Stallions lost eight players to Division I programs last year, including running back Greg Bryant to Notre Dame. However American Heritage has won state championships in 2011 and 2009 and regularly reloads for another run at a championship. The Stallions have not lost a district title since 2005.
