Nice! I know a few Ohio high schools are making a case for best in the nation. St. Iggy from the north east would be the team I'd put my money on.
I could have made the team when I was there
The 4 teams ahead of them - don't recall for sure - 3 from the deep south (the usual suspects) , and 1 from California.
BHS already beat the top-ranked team in Texas.
A legit 5'9" (maybe 5'10") around 130 lbs.
BUT I WAS SLOW............................
Im in the HS yearbook in the 1971 - on the golf team photo
remember the parking lot with the stoners who smoked weed between classes lol
Texas is loaded with good HS teams.
Katy High being one of the better ones.
BHS moved up to #4 in SI national rankings.
After BHS just beat #2 Mt Si (in the Wash st rankings) 49-10 at their place - the Si coach said it was hard for him to believe there were 3 HS teams in the country that could beat them.
You don't think of egg-head academic schools like BHS way up in the corner of the country as being so good.
Usually Football-mad Texas, ohio, Penn, So Calif, Florida etc.........................
