Servite High [Anaheim, CA] has started the season red-hot with a perfect 5-0 record in the pre-season, and ranked 8th in the state of California going into league play tomorrow night. Servite will face a formidable opponent in the JSerra Lions [San Juan Capistrano, CA] who happen to be ranked 10th in the state themselves. Getting to 6-0 [1-0 league] will not be easy for the Friars, but that is the nature of what is arguably the most competitive high school football league in the country.
The vaunted Trinity League is host to Mater Dei High School [Santa Ana, CA], the #2 ranked team in the nation according to USA Today. St. John Bosco High School [Bellflower, CA] is the #5 ranked team in the country and Orange Lutheran High School, also 5-0 is the #20th ranked team in country and all play in the Trinity League together. Oh by the way, Servite and JSerra are both undefeated at 5-0 as well.
