If you’ve never watched a St. John Bosco (California) football game, you may get a glimpse of something during Saturday’s national telecast on ESPNU that will get you asking…what the heck is that?
When the Braves, ranked #1 in the High School Football America Top 25, have the ball against St. Xavier (Ohio) keep your eye on the sideline where four gyrating St. John Bosco players, wearing brightly colored vests, will be signaling-in the offense play calls. They do a wide-array of crazy moves that tell head coach Jason Negro‘s high-powered, fast-moving offense what they be running.
Now, while it may look crazy, there’s a lot that goes into the signals. In fact, during spring and fall camps, Negro and the coaching staff audition the kids and have them practice in a way that would make Marcel Marceau proud. For those of you that are wondering, who is Marceau? He one of the world’s most famous mimes.
Listen (below) to what Negro says goes into the handle signals that had an interesting twist when current UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen was playing for the Braves.
