  SJ Prep is the 6A City Champ . . . Wood is the 5A City Champ . . . N-G won its 2A playoff.
  Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Bill Brannau. Mr. Brannau, who passed away today, was a first team All-Catholic quarterback for South Catholic's football champions in 1948 and coached Judge to a title in 1964. He also played QB at Villanova. As a coach, he was the head man for 17 seasons at Judge, SJ Prep and Neumann (92 wins). RIP, sir.
