No. 3 Chaminade-Madonna (3-0) has held its ranking since the preseason, and so far the Lions have done nothing to show there’s any reason they shouldn’t be ranked where they are, if not higher.
They earned a hard-fought 35-28 victory over No. 20 St. John’s (DC) in Week 1, and have steamrolled their past two opponents with a combined 91-42 score.
Chaminade-Madonna’s big wins are due in large part to its list of big name recruits. Its junior class alone is loaded, headlined by wide receiver Jeremiah Smith, safety Zaquan Patterson and athlete Joshisa Trader – three of the top 15 recruits in the nation in 2024, per 247Sports.com.
No. 14 American Heritage (4-0) hasn’t enjoyed a top 5 ranking this year, but the Patriots have played like they think they deserve one.
They opened their season with wins over teams from Georgia and California, and have outscored their previous two in-state opponents 96-14.
American Heritage will have to lean on its own high-profile players if it wants to beat Chaminade-Madonna.
The Patriots will look to a pair of Ohio State commits to keep their offense rolling. Senior Mark Fletcher is one of the best running backs in the country, and class of 2023 wide receiver Brandon Inniss has the ability to blow the game wide open.
Both teams enter the game with stacked rosters and undefeated records, but something has to give. Don’t wait until Monday to see which team is still in the hunt for a national championship.
