At the end of the 2015 regular season, the top five ranked football teams in Division 1 of the Michigan High School Athletic Association according to the Associated Press were Saline, West Bloomfield, Northville, Detroit Cass Tech and Grand Ledge. Michigan high school football consists of eight divisions, each of which has its own separate rankings.

The top five teams in Division 3 were Zeeland West, Orchard Lake St. Mary's, Coldwater, Lowell and Muskegon. The top five teams in Division 4 were Detroit Country Day, Grand Rapids Catholic Central, Corunna, Comstock Park and Detroit Collegiate Prep-Northwestern. Division 4 is the highest division to have a team with at least one loss atop the rankings.
In Division 5, the top five ranked teams were Menominee, Portland, Freeland, Lansing Catholic and Ida. In Division 6, the top five teams were Ithaca, Schoolcraft, Montague, Monroe St. Mary Catholic Central and Millington. The top five teams in Division 7 were Traverse City St. Francis, Ishpeming, New Lothrop, Pewamo-Westphalia and Clinton. The top five ranked teams in Division 8 were Muskegon Catholic Central, St. Ignace, Waterford Our Lady of the Lakes, Climax-Scotts and Lake Linden-Hubbell. This division is notable because Waterford Our Lady of the Lakes ranked lower than Muskegon Catholic Central even though the former school received more first place votes than the latter school.
