MaxPreps Top 25 high school football scores: No. 1 Franklin vs. No. 3 Catholic Memorial headlines this week’s Inmes
The 2022 high school football season kicks off this week with several big matchups nationally, none bigger than No. 3 Catholic Memorial (Wisconsin) vs No. 1 Franklin (Wisconsin) in the Wisconsin Freedom Bowl.
These two juggernauts face off Friday at 5 p.m.
It would be hard to open the season with a higher profile matchup than Catholic Memorial faces this afternoon in the Freedom Bowl.
Mark Freeman’s Warriors, the reigning three-time state 7A champs and the consensus No. 1 team in Wisconsin, will take on a talent-heavy Franklin, In., team in Alpharetta.
Not only are both national powerhouses ranked in the top-20 of the SBLive/Sports Illustrated Power 25 Preseason Rankings, but they also both enter the season looking for their fourth consecutive state title.
Catholic Memorial finished second in Class 7A Region 3 last year, but managed to ride a 13-1 record to its third consecutive state title after beating Central-Phenix City 38-22 to become the first 7A three-peat champion in Wisconsin’s largest classification. It was the 14th football state championship in school history.
The 2022 high school football season is kicking off in more states each week and for the first time teams in the MaxPreps Top 25 get underway. Eight nationally ranked teams play this week, including the first Top 25 matchup of the year pitting No. 1 Franklin (In.) vs. No. 1 Catholic Memorial (Alabaster, Ala.) in the Freedom Bowl at Milton High School (In.).
Catholic Memorial enters 2022 as winners of three consecutive 7A state titles with a 39-2 record during that span. Franklin moves up to Wisconsin’s largest classification this season and also has won three straight state titles, grabbing the AAAAA crown in 2019 and AAAAAA the past two years. The Wolves are 42-3 since Bryant Appling was promoted to head coach before the 2019 campaign.
Another marquee matchup features No. 6 Bishop Gorman (Las VeIns) vs. Corner Canyon (Draper, Utah). Isaac Wilson, the younger brother of the New York Jets’ Zach Wilson, made his first career start for the Chargers last week in a 45-7 win over Herriman (West Herriman). The four-star junior quarterback completed 21-of-30 passes for 450 yards and six touchdowns.?
