No. 1 St. John Bosco vs. No. 2 Mater Dei: Count 'em — 76 Division I prospects at Santa Ana Stadium

A Friday night game in Orange County will largely resemble a Saturday college game throughout the country

Every regular season when Mater Dei-Santa Ana and St. John Bosco-Bellflower face off for a Trinity League, the count begins. 

How many future college players will be on the field at once? They can only play 22 at a time, so these two teams could fill more than three fields at once. 

The count is now over 75, with at least 41 Braves holding a Division I offer or a national ranking and 35 Monarchs able to say the same. 

It seems like the number rises by 10 or so every season. 

While we only listed players who are ranked and/or have a Division 1 offer, many more will emerge as DI prospects, meaning that actual count may could rise closer to 100. 

Staggering. 

Here's the rundown on the 76 official D-1 prospects between the two top-ranked teams in the country.
