The following week after his team opened the 2022 season with tough loss to Hollywood Chaminade-Madonna in the inaugural Broward County National Football Showcase, St. John’s College Prep head coach Pat Ward told the organizers that he wanted to come back.
The experience of playing in an event that was gaining national momentum was something that veteran coach wanted for his players and coaches, and he will make his return with his Cadets as part of tripleheader Saturday.
The 7:30 kickoff on FloSports will head to Plantation American Heritage as head coach Mike Smith and his Patriots look to continue the domination they started in last year’s event – beat Los Alamitos of California handily.
The showdown promises to put an exciting cap on what has been another amazing production in Broward County – with 2024 already being planned out as they largest talent showcase yet.
