BC becomes the third northern New Jersey team in High School Football America’s Top 50.  St. Joseph Regional (Montvale) and Don Bosco Prep are ranked #13 and #16 respectively.  All three play each other, once again this season.

For those of you unfamiliar with our rankings, this is the fourth straight year that High School Football America will be using its proprietary algorithm to rank teams nationally, regionally and locally.  What that means is, our computer does all the work, there’s no opinion involved.  Over the past three seasons, our preseason poll included some opinion, but this year marks the first time that our algorithm is completely in-charge of determining our “mythical” national champ from start to finish.
