High School Football America is currently working on its algorithm for the upcoming release of our Preseason Top 100 in early summer. Once again, look for St. John Bosco (Bellflower, California) to be somewhere near the top, thanks to a tremendous amount of returning talent, led by 5-star quarterback DJ Uiagalelei, and a great out-of-state schedule that combines with its usual Trinity League gauntlet. Last year, the Braves finished No. 3 in our final rankings.

Bosco’s 2019 schedule features five teams that finished last season in our Top 100 — No. 1 Mater Dei (California), No. 36 DeMatha (Maryland), No. 40 JSerra (California), No. 58 Good Counsel (Maryland) and No. 90 Orange Lutheran (California). In addition to Trinity League opponents JSerra, Mater Dei, Orange Lutheran, Santa Margarita and Servite, the Braves will host New Jersey-power Don Bosco Prep and travel to Hawaii to play Open Division runner-up Mililani.
