City of Hialeah In Football Spotlight This Evening

With two-time defending 2A state champion Champagnat Catholic still in the race for a sixth consecutive state title appearance, football in the City of Hialeah hasn’t been in the spotlight for a few seasons. But that all changes tonight.

When defending champion Barbara Goleman (8-2) faces off with surprising Westland Hialeah (8-1) at 7:00 in the Greater Miami Athletic Conference (GMAC), the Gators and Wildcats will get the chance to bring home a title. Westland Hialeah’s lone loss came to the Gators earlier this season, 24-12.

With the championship game at Traz Powell Stadium, there has been a lot of talk about more teams playing independent football in south Florida.

For the past three years, the opportunity for schools to take part in a league that has teams who are more evenly matched, there has been a change in attitude and participation.

Some programs had been forced to stop junior varsity programs because there were not enough athletes who were interested in playing. With independent leagues teams started winning and attracting more athletes who wanted to be a part of a winner. Both programs had suffered through it and have made changes.

Even though programs do well as an independent, some choose to stay that way – competing against teams they have a chance to beat.

With more of the 91-0, 77-0 and 66-0 scores, a push has been made to ensure that those games are going to be rare.
