St. John Bosco, the #10 team in the High School Football America National Top 25, won’t get any home cooking this season.
The Braves, who have won three straight Trinity League titles, will play all of their games away from home this season while the team’s stadium and surrounding athletic complex undergoes a facelift. Bosco’s home-away-from-home will be nearby Falcon Field at Cerritos College.
St. John Bosco head coach Jason Negro says he’s not worried about playing what amounts to 10 regular season road games. Listen to his thoughts below.
If the Braves, who won the 2013 CIF Open Division state championship, need to be convinced that you don’t need a home field to win a state title, they only have to look at Allen, Texas. Last year, the Eagles won their third straight Texas title while playing all of their games on the road while their $60 million stadium was closed for repairs.
The difference between Bosco and Allen is that the Braves are at least able to practice on their home field, Allen couldn’t even do that.
