Bishop Gorman Catholic High School is now the top football program in the country.
The No. 2 ranked team from Las Vegas, Nevada upset No. 1 St. John Bosco from Bellflower, California in the High School Football spotlight on ESPN. Bishop Gorman won 34-31 in front of a packed house at the Gorman home stadium.
St. John Bosco ran out of time in their pursuit of coming back. They trailed as much as 20-3 at halftime.
UCLA recruit and Bosco quarterback Josh Rosen hit Kaylin Franklin for an 8-yard touchdown, as they made it 34-31. Following the touchdown, Bosco went for an onside kick, which was recovered by Gorman, who ran out the clock.
He then connected with tight end Jarett Balter for a 25-yard touchdown to make it 34-24. Bosco back Sean McGrew ran for a six-yard touchdown to make it 34-17.
Gorman quarterback Tate Martell hit UCLA recruit Alize Jones for a 24-yard touchdown to make it 34-10.
Prior to this touchdown, Rosen hit Jared Harrell for a 45-yard reception. He followed that up with a 13-yard touchdown to Anselem Umeh.
Martell and hit sophomore receiver Tyjon Lindsey for a 67-yard touchdown. Both players came from Poway High School in Poway, California this past July.
