SUMMARY: For those who follow high school football in south Florida, nobody has to tell you how disappointing 2019 was for this football program.
With head coach Benedict Hyppolite moving on to the collegiate level before the start of the season, the scramble was on to find a head coach and live up to the hype that surrounded this team as it headed to Class 4A for the first year.
Despite things not moving the way many expected – with some stunning losses – the Chiefs still managed to qualify for the playoffs, coming up with key wins down the stretch.
The off season began with the hiring of a new coach. Someone, while he came from nearby Northwestern, knew the landscape of football in the competitive inner city – and followed that up with the hiring of several tremendous coaches.
While some underclassmen left and transferred to other schools, this team has been fortunate to have held on to some key players and bring a few others into something very promising.
As 4A continues to be very competitive, this is a program that may have enough talent and athletes to pull some more surprises as they set the tone for the future.
