The 2022 schedules are out for the six teams in Southern California’s Trinity League, the toughest high school football league in the nation, according to High School Football America’s proprietary algorithm.

Last season, five of the league’s six teams finished in our national rankings, powered by NFL Play Football. Leading the way was Mater Dei, which won its third HSFA national championship.

Both Servite (No. 6) and St. John Bosco (No. 8) finished in the Top 10 last year. Orange Lutheran, which played for the Division 1-AA championship last year, checked-in at No. 91. Santa Margarita was ranked No. 144.

As far as this year’s schedules, all six teams are playing top-quality non-league schedules. Mater Dei and St. John Bosco will test themselves against three out-of-state opponents each.

Mater Dei will open against West from Salt Lake City, Utah. The Monarchs will also played defending Nevada champ Bishop Gorman and Mililani from Hawaii.

Bosco heads to Texas to open the season against 5-time state champ Allen, which won three straight High School Football America national championships from 2012 to 2014. The Braves will also play two defending state champs — Central Catholic (Oregon 6A) and Kahuku (Hawaii Open).

Santa Margarita will play one out-of-state opponent, Mullen from Colorado.

League play opens on the last day in September.

The team with the toughest league schedule is probably Bosco. The Braves will play Servite on September 30, followed by its annual showdown with Mater Dei on October 7. Both of those games will be on the road for SJB.

Below are the schedules for every team.
