It was mentioned to me in a PM that St. Frances uses 5th year players, essentially operating like a Prep School.

That does change the equation for me. It's hard to match-up with that.

It’s funny that people have to PM you to make baseless accusations of 5 yr players at SFA. It’s very easy to verify the claim with eyewitness accounts and video from private sources and websites like HUDL. If true, rivals of SFA would be quick to put the truth out there and expose SFA & Poggi. I think they’re BSing you @BSLChrisStoner.

Okay, again I'm going to claim some ignorance here....   simply haven't done any work / research of this on my own, and haven't followed the HS scene in years.

Clearly you are saying SFA does not use 5th year players, and is not effectively a Prep School...

Is this something Poggi has addressed somewhere?   Is there anyone (from the local privates) which has said on the record that is what they think SFA is doing?

Appreciate the info here.

Fear of a Libel lawsuit will keep SFA haters from posting claims of 5th year players at SFA. If the league kicked SFA out for outspending everyone in recruiting (not illegal), what do you think would’ve been done with evidence of players playing a 5th year? All hell would have broken loose and SFA would have been dragged through the mud.

Nope, Henry Russell and Poggi are supposedly Co Head Coaches. If you believe that one. But they just never removed the MIAA schools yet

checking in from the GC vs SFA scrimmage. Not even comparable. 20-0 at the half

for SFA. Not sure GC even had net positive yardage. I heard a lot of talk about GC's

offensive. line, how big they were.......big yes, good, well at this point, NO. They can not

stop the penetration of SFA's defense. RB's have no holes, QB has no time. GC OL is

big.......SFA's is about as big and better and they are 3-4 deep and BIG at all OL positions.

GC is small up front  defensively. Bangda runs like a  grown man. Courm can get wide or

pick and choose his holes to run thru. The QB is throwing the ball well. SFA looks very good

at this point.

SFA must have done all that damage late in first half, only thing I saw was a stalemate. Missed FG by the 5 star kicker.

Pretty sure St. John's is the favorite, but I get your point.

Yeah GA, I saw St. John’s schedule. They wouldn’t schedule the teams that they scheduled unless they were loaded. According to USA Today, the Cadets play the following:

8/25 Johns Creek (Ga.)
8/31 at Hoover (Ala.)
9/8 Miami Central
9/15 IMG Academy (Fla.)
9/22 Marietta (Ga.)
9/29 at Christian Brothers (St. Louis)
10/6 Bishop McNamara (Md.)
10/13 Good Counsel (Md.)
10/26 at DeMatha (Md.)
11/3 at Gonzaga

That might not be correct because they also have SFA playing the his schedule:

8/24 Doral Academy (Fla.)
8/31 St. Joseph’s Prep (Philadelphia) at University of Maryland
9/7 Christ the King (N.Y.)
9/21 Calvert Hall (Md.)
9/28 Life Christian Academy (Va.)
10/5 Football North (Ontario)
10/12 at Gilman
10/19 vs. St. Thomas More (Ct.) at Trinity College
10/27 at Mount St. Joseph
11/2 Silver Oak Academy
11/9 COF Academy (Ohio)
11/16 West Toronto Prep
