21. St. John’s

Location: Washington, D.C.
2016 record: 8-4

POLLWho should be No. 1 in preseason Super 25 football rankings?

On offense, the Cadets gained a high-profile transfer in QB Kevin Doyle from Malvern (Pa.) Prep. The top returning players on offense are senior OL Josh Jefferson, senior WR Charlie Briscoe III, sophomore WR Rakim Jarrett, OL Rian Haigler and junior RB Keilan Robinson.

St. John’s is particularly strong on defense. Start with Virginia Tech commit DT Cam Goode, along with sophomore LB-DE Mekhail Sherman, senior DB D.J. Brown, who is a Virginia commit, junior DE Tre’Mon Morris Brash and junior CBs Aman Greenwood and Quinten Johnson. They also have a solid kicker in Rafael Checa.

The Cadets face a tough schedule with games versus Jones (Orlando, Fla.), a road trip to California Open Division runner-up De La Salle (Concord.), a home game with New Jersey state champion St. Joseph Regional (Montvale) and a game at IMG. Plus, the Cadets have at least one game with four-time WCAC champion DeMatha (Hyattsville, Md.).
