The growth of St. John Bosco football under the direction of head coach Jason Negro has been one of the top stories in Southern California over the past five years. Coach Negro, who is an alum of the school, has led the program to the top of the Trinity League, which is considered one of the two best high school football leagues in the country.
In 2013, SJB won California’s Open Division championship, which led to a #2 ranking in High School Football America’s national Top 25. Last season, the Braves finished #15 in the nation with their only loses coming to #3 Bishop Gorman (Nevada) and #13 Corona Centennial (California).
The climb to the top has been built on Negro and his staff developing some top-notch student-athletes.
On Wednesday, three of the best of this year’s squad, which will once again begin the season in our preseason Top 25, announced their verbal college commitments. All three chose PAC-12 schools.
Running back Sean McGrew gave his verbal to the University of Washington.
WR/DB DJ Morgan said he wants to be an Arizona St. Sun Devil, while CB Traveon Beck announced Cal has his choice.
