ESPN Ranks Bells #23 in Nation

23. Bellarmine Prep (San Jose, Calif.)
Record: 5-0
Points: 136
Previous rank: 25

What sets the Bells apart from just about any other team in California is not that they have big-time recruits in several positions, but in their case they have a quarterback to go with them. Senior Austyn Carta-Samuels is that quarterback, and he had a strong game in Bellarmine's 41-7 triumph over Archbishop Riordan. Carta-Samuels completed 10 of 16 passes for 213 yards and two TDs and also ran for a 41-yard score. Head coach Mike Janda's team has perhaps its biggest regular-season test of the season Friday at Valley Christian of San Jose. Valley Christian is 5-0 and is No. 8 in the state.
