In a rivalry game dating all the way back to the 1920s St. Louis University (0-3) comes into this week looking to dethrone top-ranked and defending state champion, Christian Brothers College (3-0); a hump that SLUH hasn’t been able to get over since 2005. In what was once considered to be the most heated rivalry in Missouri, recent years have shown Christian Brothers has undoubtedly had St. Louis’ number, despite several close contests.

Last season the Cadets handled the Jr. Bills easily in a 55-7 route, but the Jr. Bills assuredly have revenge on their minds and hope to bring a spark back to a rivalry that at one time drew over 33,000 spectators. Christian Brothers is not only ranked 1st in the state of Missouri, but 38th nationally, so the Jr. Bills of St. Louis University have their work cut out for them this week.

Although CBC did emerge victorious in all four meetings, including the state semifinal game in 2011, Trevor amassed some eye-popping numbers in the four games. In total, Trevor finished his career with 83 completions, 1250 passing yards, and 10 passing touchdowns against the Cadets. Trevor sits at the top of several categories in the SLUH record book: game, season, and career passing yardage; season and career passing attempts; game, season, and career passing completions; game, season, and career touchdown passes; and season and career total offense. Trevor connected with Mitch Klug for a 92-yard TD pass in the state semifinal versus CBC, tying for the longest TD pass in SLUH history. After his All-State recognition in the fall of 2011 and his graduation in the spring of 2012, Trevor continued his playing career for four seasons at Columbia University. The St. Louis U. High community and football program are thrilled to have Trevor back on the sidelines, this time as a coach and leader of our young men.


The Junior Bills came into the one with revenge on their minds, but unfortunately the Cadets from Christian Brothers College had different intentions. Coming off a clear rout last season, the Cadets picked up right where they left off, showcasing an offensive juggernaut and a stalwart defense. From the opening kickoff, CBC looked bigger, stronger, faster, and hungrier for this one. Their offense racked up 59 points, while the defense did its job, holding St. Louis University to just 14 points all night for another win in this rivalry. The win moves CBC to 4-0 and pins St. Louis University down to 0-4.
