For boys sports only, St. John Bosco of Bellflower is considered tops for the state for 2019-20 and has captured that honor for the first time in school history. On the girls side, it was as difficult as ever to break up a close group but the nod has gone to Cathedral Catholic of San […]
St. John Bosco’s Jason Negro is not just the 2019 State Football Coach of the Year.

We go over why we’re moving up Corona Centennial to No. 2 this week instead of dropping previous No. 1 Mater Dei down to No. 2 behind new No. 1 St. John Bosco. This also is a good week to give JSerra a bump to No. 6 before the Lions take a crack at the...
