MaxPreps honor’s St. John Bosco as #1 in the nation

by Jeff Fisher

There is no shortage of national ranking folks out there these days.  Even I decided to dip my toe into the pool a couple of years ago with a High School Football America Top 25.

In my mind though, MaxPreps has done the best job through the years with two different types of polls – one an opinion poll, the Xcellent 25, headed by my good friend Steve Spiewak and the Freeman Rankings that use a non-biased computer program to determine team rank.

This past season, St. John Bosco came out on-top in the Freeman Rankings and this past Monday, representatives of MaxPreps traveled to Bellflower to honor the Braves and head coach Jason Negro as part of the website’s Tour of Champions journey around America.
