When we release our new national rankings on Sunday, St. John Bosco will be able to start celebrating a “mythical” national championship. Saturday night, the Braves, ranked No. 1 in the High School Football America 100, beat No. 7 De La Salle 49-28 for the California Open Division championship, which will all but wrap-up the national title with only next week’s Texas championships to be played along with a couple of games in the GEICO State Champions Bowl Series.

Clemson-recruit DJ Uiagalelei closed-out his scholastic career with a fantastic finish. He threw four touchdowns passes and ran for another.

Bosco finishes with a 13-1 record with its only loss to two-time defending champ Mater Dei. De La Salle finishes 12-2 with losses to No. 1 St. John Bosco and No. 4 St. Thomas Aquinas (Florida).
