Year-in and year-out Corona Centennial plays an extremely tough non-league schedule that prepares the Huskies for league play, but more importantly for the postseason grind in in Southern California.
Last year, the Huskies found themselves at 1-2, three games into the season, but both of those losses came at the hands of two of the top teams in America — Bishop Gorman (Nevada) and Southern California power Mater Dei. After the September 12th loss to six-time defending Nevada champion Bishop Gorman, Centennial went-on an 11-game tear that landed the Huskies in the CIF Open Division championship game where head coach Matt Logan‘s troops lost to De La Salle, which ended the season #2 in the High School Football America Top 25. Corona Centennial finished #13 in our final poll.
With tons of talent back, which seems to always be the case with the Huskies, look for Logan, who is one of the top coaches in the country, to have his program in position to start 2015 in many of the national rankings.
USA Today High School Sports‘ Super 25 will come-out in a few weeks and recently, longtime USA Today writer Jim Halley took at look at why the Huskies should be in-the-hunt for their preseason rankings.
The High School Football America Preseason Top 25 will be released on August 1st.
