High School Football Top 10: La Salle-St. Joseph’s Prep Brace For Another Showdown

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It always seems to come down to La Salle and St. Joseph’s Prep in the Catholic League Red Division. Both teams have only given up 20 points each in their league games. Overall, Prep, which won on offense last year, is winning on defense, giving up a stubborn 8 points a game.

Something will give tonight, when Prep, CBS Philly’s No. 1-ranked team, hosts La Salle at 8 p.m. at Widener’s Quick Stadium.

La Salle (6-1 overall, 4-0 Catholic Red) will need to get by a defense anchored by tackle Ryan Bryce, ends Jake Feehery and Rayshad Wallace, and linebackers Bradley Cobaugh, Phil O’Connor and Zach Snider, and a secondary that features Zach Bougess, DeJuan Dandrige, Dawson DeIuliis, Devon Dickerson, and Myles Talley.

Prep (6-0, 4-0) has outscored its six opponents 211-44, winning by an average of 35.16 to 7.3 points per game.

La Salle senior Danny Solecki has done well stepping in for quarterback Isaiah Jones, who was injured in the Explorers’ second game. Jones is expected back tonight possibly at defensive back.
