HISTORY: Two of the last three FAB 50 national champs earned their ranking with strong showings at NEPS. Three seasons ago, St. Thomas Aquinas went 3-1 and coupled with that season’s surprises in California and Texas, topped what was then know as the POWERADE FAB 50. Last season, Plano West went 4-0 at NEPS and that jumpstarted an undefeated state title run, which earned the Wolves the national No. 1 ranking.
