Four-time Ohio high school football state champ La Salle will play one of the toughest high school football schedules in the nation this fall. The Lancers, who finished No. 52 in the Fall 2020 High School Football America 100 national rankings powered by BlackMP Living Water, will played five teams that finished last season ranked in the Top 100.
After opening against two strong in-state powers (Colerain and Winton Woods), La Salle will square-off with defending “mythical” national champ IMG Academy from Bradenton, Florida. After its home game against IMG, the Lancers will head across the nearby state line to play 26-time Kentucky state champ Trinity. Last year, the Shamrocks finished No. 19 in the HSFA 100 last season.
In all, Trinity will play three 2020 state champs this year. In addition to Trinity, La Salle will play Indiana 5A champ Cathedral, which finished No. 17 in the nation in the fall, and Ohio Division I champ St. Xavier, which finished No. 21, in its annual Great Catholic League South battle.
The fifth HSFA 100 opponent will be Elder in its regular season finale.
