Hollywood Chaminade-Madonna Ends Spring Today

They finished unbeaten (14-0) a year ago, winning yet another state football title.

The national rankings had them at No. 2 – even though many felt that if they played anyone in the country they would come out on top.

Head Coach Dameon Jones and his Hollywood Chaminade-Madonna Lions have become the standard for high school football programs nationally, outscoring the competition, 687-137, including an amazing 210-7 in the four state playoff games.

When the season ended, the Lions watched six players move on to elite Power “5” programs with several more attending other schools across the country.

This “factory” doesn’t rebuild – it simply reloads – as the off season proved.

While there is plenty of returning talent from last season, there are new faces as well – all will be on display this evening (5:00) for the annual spring game on campus.

Some of the top talent in south Florida made their move to Hollywood, joining some impressive returnees who are ready to head back to the state finals.

While Arwin Jackson (RB), Kyle Washington (WR), Jaquari Lewis (Athlete), Chris Ewald (DB), Kelly Sejour Jr. (DB), Bryant Junius (OLB), Craig Comrie Jr. (OLB), Ekeem Atehortua (OL), Donta Simpson Jr. (DT), and Anthony Smith (DT) return from last year, there several transfers who will also make this team one of the best in the country once again.
