6. St. Frances Academy
Location: Baltimore, Maryland
18-19 Record: 10-0
Final Super 25 Rank: 4
Why them: St. Frances Academy has 11 players ranked four-stars or better and talent all over the field. The defensive end is where the team truly stands out, though. Take a look at some of these positions:
The defensive line is led by five-star WDE Chris Braswell and includes four-star WDE Demon Clowney, four-star DT Dominic Bailey, four-star DT Katron Evans, and two more three-star WDEs.
The secondary has two four-star cornerbacks in Luke Hill and Clinton Burton Jr., and four-star safety Jordan Toles. At linebacker, three four-stars (Aaron Wilson, Jamon Dumas-Johnson and Osman Savage) and three-star Nikhai Hill-Green.
Then, on offense, the line has four three-star players in Delfin Castillo, Michael Statham, Micah Mazzccua, Ja’Khi Green, which is perfect for protecting four-star running back Blake Corum.
After allowing no more than six points in its first eight games last season, and then winning its ninth and final game 43-14, SFA looks like it can be as dominant as ever in 2019.
