St. John Bosco (California) moves to No. 1 in the High School Football America 100

high school football america preseason 100

The chase of High School Football America’s 2019 “mythical” national championship got a little clear this past weekend with lots of big games, but none was bigger than the rematch between two-time defending national champ Mater Dei and St. John Bosco in Southern California. No. 3 Bosco’s come-from-behind 39-34 win over then No. 1 Mater Dei pushes the Braves to the top of the latest High School Football America 100 national rankings.

St. John Bosco now controls its own destiny to a national title. In two weeks, the Braves will play No. 7 De La Salle for the California Open Division title.

Mater Dei falls to No. 2, followed by St. Frances Academy (Maryland) at No. 3. St. Thomas Aquinas (Florida), which beat De La Salle in the season opener on national television, is ranked No. 4. Duncanville (Texas) is perched at No. 5.

There plenty of movement within the Top 100, plus we welcome seven new teams this week — Edgewater (Florida) at No. 54, Richmond (North Carolina) at No. 76, Westfield (Texas) at No. 94, Columbus (Miami, Florida) at No. 95, Chaminade-Madonna (Florida) at No. 97, Dacula (Georgia) at No. 99 and Jones (Orlando, Florida) at No. 100.
