Top-Ranked Don Bosco Prep (NJ) Blows By #9 St. Edward (OH)

Don Bosco Prep (Ramsey, NJ), the nation's #1 ranked team according to several national poll, including MaxPreps, took-down another power football team from another powerful state Saturday night.

The Ironmen beat #9 St. Edward (Lakewood, OH) 38-7 at Fordham University in the Bronx in New York City. The victory, which was DBP's 40th straight, gives the school wins over teams from California (Mission Viejo HS), Florida (Manatee HS) and Ohio this season.

Don Bosco (5-0) played well on both sides of the ball with quarterback Mike Yankovich completing 15 of 20 passes for 165 yards. Sophomore running back Jabrill Peppers also ran for three scores.

The win snapped St. Ed's 21-game win streak. Last year, the Eagles won Ohio's Division 1 state championship.

On Thursday, I spoke with St. Edward head coach Rick Finotti, who talked about the match-up and the program that he's turned-around since taking over in May of 2009.
