BATTLE OF THE STATE CHAMPS: Champagnat Catholic (2A) vs. Chaminade-Madonna (3A) Tonight

With everything that has transpired in the past five months, football will finally return to south Florida this evening (7:00) when two state champions will square off in a game that will not be open to fans.

In this Covid-19 landscape, defending 2A state champion Hialeah Champagnat Catholic and head coach Hector Clavijo will travel to Hollywood to take on Dameon Jones and his three-time defending 3A state champions – in a matchup that has to be a marquee event.

Five state titles in six years will be on display when these two state powers collide in a game where rosters have changed a great deal from the way things ended last December in Tallahassee.

The Lions of Chaminade-Madonna (12-2 a year ago) welcome back such stars as University of Miami bound prospects Thaddius Franklin and Allan Haye Jr., along with recent Ohio University commitment Torrie Cox Jr.

As much experience as this team has, they still have some impressive underclassmen – such as juniors Kenyatta Johnson, Brian Dilworth, Jamaal Johnson, Dylan Reid, Khelyan Martin-Brown, Ryan Turner, Jordan Lynch, Kalunj Matthew, and sophomores Elvin Harris, D’Angelo Ponds, British Mithell, Deandre Duffus and Jason Hammond.

The Champagnat Lions (10-3 a year ago) are also stacked with quality football talent as well - with some new faces on both sides of the ball.

Class of 2021 standouts such as: Elias Blandon, William Jeudy, Donovan Jones, Ethan Moncada, Georgia Tech-bound Malik Rutherford, Deondrick Speight and newcomer Tyous Taylor all have a chance to be special.

Cass of 2022 receivers Jaylin Terzado, Shayon Walton and Benson Prosper are impressive. So are 2023 receiver Kelvin Blount, and Class of 2024 center Matthew Rubio, who started as an 8th grader a year ago.
