Well, now that all the state championship games are wrapping up throughout the nation, there is going to be an argument as to who is the best high school football team this year. Well, there really isn’t an argument in 2016. Bishop Gorman, out of Las Vegas, Nevada, was in a league of their own this year. If you want to know how dominant they were, they won their state championship game 84-8.
They also beat Cedar Hill High School, Texas, 44-14 at their place. This same Cedar Hill team made it to the Texas 6A DII state semifinals where they gave DeSoto one of their toughest games of the year. While there is a difference in Texas high school football playoffs and Nevada high school football playoffs, it is still amazing to see how Bishop Gorman dismantled almost every team on their schedule.
Some would argue that IMG Academy, out of Bradenton, Florida, would give Bishop Gorman a run for their money but their schedule doesn’t stack up. Also note that IMG Academy plays teams for smaller divisions in Florida and other states. Bishop Gorman takes on the big boys from every single state including Texas and California.
Who do you think was the best high school football team in the entire USA in 2016?
