Sports: Bosco Football Sets Its Sights on the Lone Star State’s Allen Eagles

by Christian Angel, Managing Editor

Everything is bigger in Texas, including high school football, and the town of Allen, home of the Allen High School Eagles, has an $60 million 18,000 seat stadium to prove it. Though the state’s natives tell others not to mess with Texas, the St. John Bosco Braves look to prove that warning does not apply to the number one ranked football team in the nation.

Head Coach Jason Negro and Bosco Football left for Texas Wednesday morning to begin preparation for the Eagles, who are ranked number 46 in the nation by MaxPreps and won the 2017 Texas Class 6A Division I Football Championship.

“Allen is a tradition-rich Texas program that takes a lot of pride in their football program. Brave Nation can expect our team to represent the school, league and state well,” said Offensive Coordinator Stephen Lo. “You will see some hungry Braves flying around the field making plays. Our players have been working for a long time in preparation for this moment, and the game should not disappoint.”

All eyes will be on the players who make Bosco America’s top team coming into the 2022 season. Ms. Melody Mohebbi, Head Athletic Trainer, takes seriously the responsibility of moving Bosco’s athletic training operations to Allen to ensure the players receive top-tier treatment so they can compete at the highest level. 

“We always find some time between meetings or during the rest periods to do some treatment every day, but we are in a good spot. We might have a little bit of soreness and bumps and bruises, which is part of football anyways, but overall we are in good health,” Ms. Mohebbi said.

Though the health and safety of the Braves is always paramount, bragging rights are on the line. Four-star cornerback and Stanford-commit Jshawn Frausto-Ramos perhaps put it best.

“Everyone talks about Cali vs Texas, so I can’t wait to show them what we are about,” he said.

The game is Friday at 5pm PST. Bosco fans who aren’t traveling to Allen can stream the game from their homes via FloSports or attend a watch party starting at 4:30pm in the Mary Help of Christians Quad with their fellow Brave faithful.
