Prep football: Violation moves Jordan foe to 0-4
A bit of the luster has been lost in Saturday's marquee high school football game between Jordan and St. John Bosco of California at the Xfinity Challenge.
The Los Angeles Times is reporting that St. John Bosco forfeited four wins this season after the team discovered one of its players was ineligible.
The L.A. Times report said that the school self-reported the violation.
That means that the undefeated Beetdiggers, who are ranked No. 1 in Class 5A, will face a winless St. John Bosco team at 2 p.m. at Rio Tinto Stadium.
St. John Bosco, which is located in Bellflower, Calif., was ranked No. 30 in the latest Rivals.com poll but drops from 4-0 to 0-4.
The other game that is part of Saturday's Xfinity Challenge pits Alta against Don Bosco Prep from New Jersey. That game is scheduled to kick off at 7 p.m.
P Saturday, Rio Tinto Stadium
2 p.m. • Jordan vs. St. John Bosco (Calif.)
