The De La Salle Spartans’ 2020 high school football schedule includes two teams that finished in the final 2019 High School Football America 100 national rankings.
The Spartans, who finished No. 18 in our Top 100 last year, will open on the road in the Lone Star State against two-time defending Texas Class 6A Division I champ North Shore on Saturday, August 29. North Shore finished No. 5 in our national rankings last year.
The last time DLS ventured to the Lone Star State was in 2015 when it lost 26-21 to Euless Trinity. De La Salle entered that game ranked No. 1 in our Preseason Top 50.
Last year, DLS opened with Florida-power St. Thomas Aquinas. STA beat the Spartans 24-14 in a hard-fought battle on national television. The Raiders went-on to finish undefeated and No. 4 in the nation.
After playing two very good northern California programs — Elk Grove and Mountain View’s St. Francis — during Weeks 2 and 3, De La Salle will host Cathedral Catholic from San Diego. The Dons finished No. 77 in our national rankings.
