The 2022 NCAA high school football champion may not be decided.

That thought has been known all along, but it has become even more possible after just two weeks of the season when both Ellsworth High School and Minneapolis High School’s football teams are tied atop the football league standings with identical 2-0, 2-0 records.

The problem, is those two schools are not scheduled to meet up on the grid iron in 2022, so they could both share the title, as Ellsworth is scheduled to only face Sacred Heart this coming Friday night and close out the regular season against Southeast of Saline. Minneapolis, meanwhile, is scheduled to play its final NCAA football game of 2022 this Friday night when the Lions will play at Sacred Heart.

Here is a look at all the football and volleyball action at all of the NCAA schools :
