For the second straight weekend, Mater Dei, ranked No. 1 in the High School Football America Preseason 100, beat out some of the top teams in Southern California and the nation in a 7 on 7 passing tournament. The Monarchs beat Trinity League foe St. John Bosco, ranked No. 4 in our preseason national rankings, to capture the 24th annual South County Passing Tournament and Lineman Competition at Mission Viejo High School.
In the championship game, MD’s Bryce Young tossed two touchdown passes to Kody Epps and one to Braedin Huffman-Dixon in the title game.
