Don’t look now, but someone woke the defending 4A state champion Booker T. Washington Tornadoes up.
Heading into the first round of the inaugural South Florida Tri-County Championships, first year head coach Gerald Cox and his football team have started to make some noise.
It is once again evident that – even being handicapped with limited games this season – south Florida teams are in this to win it.
From 2A right through to 8A, south Florida football is very much alive as the Road To Tallahassee continues to get closer.

After a challenging and shortened high school football season, teams that opted into a Tri-County championship tournament will finally play first-round playoff games late next week.
Quarterfinal playoff games will be played in three classification (Class 8A, 7A, 6A-1A) and in Gold/Silver Brackets to allow as many teams as possible to compete in the playoffs.
Higher-seeded quarterfinal winners will host semifinal games the week of Friday, Dec. 11
Championship games are scheduled for Dec. 21-22 at a site to be determined.
When Miami Edison plays host to Hollywood Chaminade-Madonna this evening (7:30) at the fabled “Mecca” of high school football – Traz Powell Stadium – the Red Raiders will be in a position to alter history.
This football program, which had certainly been one of the best on south Florida for many decades – starting as far backs as the 1950’s, are up against a team that has indeed met every challenge.
LIONS HAVE INDEED BEEN THERE,
AND DONE THAT!
MIAMI GARDENS – The Miami Dolphins as part of the Junior Dolphins Donations presented by Baptist Health visited nine high schools and three youth parks throughout Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties to distribute “fit kits” as well as meals from the Miami Dolphins Foundation Food Relief Program in an effort to support the healthy and active lifestyles of student-athletes facing athletic programming cancellations and closures due to COVID-19 concerns.
Beginning Monday, Oct. 5 and concluding Saturday, Nov. 14, the Dolphins impacted 1,000 student-athletes by distributing 3,000 meals and 1,000 fit kits, which included cones, stretch bands, a jump rope and mask. The Dolphins also donated football equipment, electronics, uniforms and cleats to programs in need.
