When Snoop Dogg’s son transferred to perhaps the best high school football program in the nation during the last school year, the goal was to get the big-time recruit better-prepared for Division I. Turns out it also created the latest — and The Greatest! — sports/celebrity power couple.
Ready for Cordaggio, America?
Cordell Broadus, a senior this upcoming season, is one of the nation’s top receiving recruits. In January, he transferred to Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas. Joining him at times in the Gaels’ huddle will be sophomore running back Biaggio Ali Walsh, grandson of Muhammad Ali.
Not that the Gaels need the help — on the field or in increasing star power. The five-time defending state champions are the No. 1-ranked team in the nation according to USA Today, and last season the team’s QB was Randall Cunningham II, son of the former Eagles great. Plus the baseball team, ranked in the top 10 nationally, will have Chase Maddux (yup, Hall of Famer Greg’s son) in its rotation this coming season, and Basketball Hall of Famer and FOX Sports 1 personality Gary Payton’s son Julian plays basketball at the school.
And lucky for you, you can catch Bishop Gorman in action this week. The team’s opening game — vs. Phoenix Brophy Prepin the Sollenberger Classic — will be televised at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT this Friday. Here’s where to catch it:
