Saturday night’s California Open Division championship between No. 1 St. John Bosco and No. 7 De La Salle is also a national championship game. If Bosco, currently ranked No. 1 in the High School Football America 100, beats the Spartans, for all intents-and-purposes, the Braves will wrap-up High School Football America’s 2019 “mythical” national championship.
Early Thursday morning, I spoke with Bosco head coach Jason Negro about the showdown. Please note, there are some drops in the audio in the interview because of a bad phone connect. We apologize for those drops.

Since High School Football America began using its proprietary algorithm in 2013 to rank teams, only St. John Bosco has finished every season in our Top 25.
