A look at the Top 50 High School teams in the country and some big upcoming matchups.

No. 1 Don Bosco Prep of Ramsey, N.J. survived a scary trip to Bradenton, Fla. as they beat No. 43 Manatee 22-16. Manatee remains in the Scout Top 50 despite a 1-2 record. The Hurricanes' two losses came to Top 10 teams in Don Bosco and No. 7 Good Counsel of Olney, Md. 

No. 3 St. Thomas Aquinas of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. and No. 9 De La Salle of Concord, Calif. have an East/West showdown this week as De La Salle travels to South Florida to on the Raiders. Aquinas had the week off to prepare for De La Salle's precision option attack, while De La Salle prepped with a an easy 35-0 win.

No. 4 Trinity of Louisville, Ky. keeps moving on up the charts. The Shamrocks beat a very good  St. Xavier of Cincinnati, Ohio who was ranked No. 12 at the time.

No. 6 Armwood of Seffner, Fla. faces an 0-3 Leto team who already has a 50-0 loss on its resume. Let's hope everyone leaves this one healthy as the Hawks could hang a 100 on Leto.

De La Salle isn't the only California team in action as there is a separation Friday of sorts in Southern California as No. 15 Mission Viejo takes on No. Long Beach Poly, and No. 34 Oaks Christian takes on unranked St. Bonaventure. The winner of the Oaks/Bonnie game will be in the Scout Top 50 next week. The loser likely won't be.

No. 24 St. Xavier lost to Trinity, and they will get no rest as they must travel to Archbishop Moeller of Cincinnati, Ohio. Like Oaks/Bonnie, this game could decide a spot in next week's Scout Top 50.
