One of the most exciting high school football games in 2016 will have a sequel as IMG Academy (Bradenton, FL) and Corona Centennial (Corona, CA) will square-off again in the 2017 Honor Bowl that will be played at Cathedral Catholic High School in San Diego, California. The game will be played September 1st at 8 o’clock.
Last year IMG, which finished No. 3 in the High School Football America National Rankings, beat the Huskies, who finished No. 10 in the nation, 50-49 in a back-and-forth offensive masterpiece. The Ascenders won the game by deciding to go for a two-point conversion with :12 seconds to go in the game.
Honor Bowl officials will announce the rest of the weekend schedule at a later date. The Honor Group, a 501 C 3 non-profit organization that produces the high school football showcase, raises money and awareness for military veterans.
