national top 50

Bishop Gorman is the new #1 team in the High School Football America Top 25 that is created using our proprietary algorithm.  Friday night, Gorman beat former #1 St. John Bosco with an impressive second half performance that saw the Gaels overcome a 14-0 1st quarter deficit.

Bishop Gorman (3-0) now owns victories over the Big Three states of California, Florida and Texas.  This week, the Gaels will host Kahuku, the top-ranked team in Hawaii.

St. John Bosco was one of three Top 25 teams to lose this week.  The Braves fall to #7 in the latest rankings.

Former #8 Booker T. Washington (Florida) fell into The Other 25 at #27 after losing to unranked Jackson 12-9 on Saturday.

St. John’s, which opens the season by playing five of its first six games against teams in the High School Football America Preseason Top 50, will have a chance to climb even higher when it plays #2 IMG Academy (Florida) this week.  The Cadets began the year ranked #39 in our Preseason Top 50.
