Updated December 19, 2023 - 6:32 pm

Bishop Gorman’s football team added another title to its trophy case Tuesday.

The Gaels were crowned national champions by USA Today, one day after MaxPreps named Gorman its top team.

It’s the fourth time Bishop Gorman earned the mythical national title from USA Today. The Gaels also finished atop the publication’s Super 25 rankings from 2014 to 2016.

Chaminade-Madonna (Florida) finished No. 2 in the USA Today poll, and Mater Dei (California), the top-ranked team in the preseason, was No. 3.

Bishop Gorman went 12-0 and won the Class 5A Division I state championship. Its out-of-state wins came against ranked opponents Corner Canyon (Utah), Miami Central (Florida) and Corona Centennial (California).
