Updated September 12, 2023 - 7:06 pm

Bishop Gorman remained ranked No. 2 nationally by MaxPreps after a dominant 56-28 win over No. 21 Centennial (California) on Friday night in its final nonleague game. Mater Dei (California) remains No. 1 with a 4-0 record.

The Gaels went 4-0 in a nonleague slate against out-of-state opponents. Their signature win came in a 39-35 thriller over No. 5 Miami Central (Florida) on Sept. 1 when they scored the game-winning touchdown with 24 seconds left.

Gorman added wins over No. 19 Corner Canyon (Utah), 63-42 on Aug. 18, and Long Beach Poly (California), 60-15 on Aug. 25 in the Nike Kickoff Classic.

USA Today’s Super 25 rankings, which has Gorman ranked No. 2, will be released Tuesday.

The Gaels open 5A Division I league play when they host Liberty at 7 p.m. Thursday.
