Honor Bowl to host rematch of IMG Academy and Corona Centennial in Southern California in 2017

The Honor Bowl

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.
