private schools top 25

No surprise at the top of the High School Football America Private Schools Top 25. Two-time HSFA 100 national champ Mater Dei finishes as the top of the heap, followed by its Trinity League foe St. John Bosco at No. 2 in the national rankings that are created with our proprietary algorithm.

Public Schools Top 25

Bosco beat Mater Dei 41-18 during the regular season, but the Monarchs bounced back with a 17-13 victory in the CIF Southern Section Division 1 championship game. Both teams return their highly-talented starting quarterbacks next season, which means you probably find both schools near the top heading into the 2019 high school football season.
