Good Counsel, the defending Washington Catholic Athletic Conference champs, will once again be taking-on a tough non-league schedule in addition to its meat-grinder WCAC schedule in 2020. The Falcons, who finished No. 12 in the High School Football America 100 national rankings, will play non-WCAC teams from Alabama, Florida, New Jersey and nearby Washington, D.C.

Six of ten of GC’s game are against teams that finished in our Top 125 last year, including a road trip to Bradenton, Florida in October to face IMG Academy, which finished No. 6 in the High School Football America 100 in 2019.

Good Counsel will open on the road against St. Joseph Regional (Montvale, New Jersey). The Green Knights finished No. 85 in our national rankings last year. Two weeks later, the Falcons will host Mount St. Joseph (Maryland), which finished No. 123 in our national rankings.

The Falcons will close-out the regular season with its four WCAC games. Last year, in addition to Good Counsel’s No. 12 ranking, St. John’s College High School finished No. 28, followed by Gonzaga (Washington, D.C.) at No. 40 and DeMatha (Maryland) at No. 41.
