The Cathedral Prep football team already has earned quite a few awards and accolades from a 15-0 state championship season.
The Ramblers claimed another national honor from maxpreps.com recently when the website ranked Prep as the No. 6 team in the final MaxPreps Medium Schools National Football Rankings.
The website classifies teams as a “medium school” if the school falls in “state enrollment divisions that generally have between 1,000 and 2,000 students.” The PIAA lists Prep with a total enrollment of 433 for the upper three grades. The national rankings were based on the MaxPreps Freeman Computer Rankings.
Bellevue (Wash.) claimed the top spot in the poll, while Washington (Miami) placed second.
USA Today ranked Prep as the No. 17 team in the country, regardless of class, recently in the final Super 25 standings.
