PrepNation 101 Preseason Countdown: No. 80 Bergen Catholic continues the most comprehensive package of preseason high school football rankings ever published. We are counting down the PrepNation 101 Preseason High School Football Rankings, from No. 101 to No. 26, leading up to the release of the official preseason National Prep Poll on August 3.

80. Bergen Catholic (Oradell, N.J.)
Last season: 9-3, Group 4 Non-Public state runner-up
Coach: Fred Stengel
Key players: RB-LB Doug Rigg (6-1, 220, Sr.), WR-FS Tanner McEvoy (6-5, 200, Jr.), QB-CB Mike Halligan (5-11, 185, Sr.), S-WR Shutang Mungwa (6-2, 200, Jr.), OL-DL Chris Bush (6-2, 220, Sr.), LB Brendan McGovern (6-0, 235, Sr.)
Outlook: With 15 starters returning, the Crusaders hope to challenge nationally ranked Don Bosco Prep and capture their first state title since 2004. McGovern was the team’s leading tackler last season while Division I recruit Rigg led the team in sacks. On offense, McEvoy provides a great target for experienced QB Halligan.
